Storyville - New York Doll


Documentary which details the turbulent history of controversial American proto-punk rockers The New York Dolls through the eyes of bassist Arthur Kane, telling the story of the band from its formation, through drug problems and the deaths of several members. After the Dolls' break up in 1975 Kane faded away into virtual obscurity and battled alcoholism in LA, but in 2004, Morrissey asked the surviving three New York Dolls to play at London's 2004 Meltdown Festival, of which he was the curator.
