About the Movie
The award-winning SXSW film LOS WILD ONES follows the lives of Irishman Reb Kennedy - "the most infuriating, difficult man you can’t help but love" - and the artists on his LA indie label, Wild Records. Wild is composed of young Hispanic musicians who write and perform ‘50s-style rock 'n' roll that insiders call a hybrid of rockabilly and punk rock. Raw and unfiltered, the film delivers an honest look at the label’s ethos and unconventional but tight-knit family of Reb, the father figure, and his ‘kids’. The bond between Reb and his artists is unparalleled in the music industry. Like any great rock ’n’ roll family, there’s plenty of dysfunction and yet they manage to stick together. Reb’s a genius in many ways and has no doubt created something huge. Though as a purist and vinyl fanatic, he is extremely reluctant to embrace the digital age. Reb must consider serious business changes if he is to take Wild Records and these uniquely talented artists to the next level.
I’m a huge fan of The Rhythm Shakers… just wish I could find their music on iTunes! LOL no really though?! :D
Real Music at its best
Forget all the over produced, here now gone tomorrow big business of music today. This is an honest look at real artist doing what they love and it shows.Forget all the BS that we are force feed. It's what my soul has been missing in music today. Amazing just doesn't seem to do it justice.
My friend Bianca told me about this documentary. Her sister made it. I have to confess, I rented it mostly out of solidarity. So imagine how happy I was to discover myself enjoying it. If you appreciate creativity and music, you will appreciate the vibrancy of this film! Well done!
