Set in 1960 through 1962, lain Softley's Backbeat is a swift little film about the Beatles' early labors in Hamburg. Greg Dulli of the Afghan Whigs on vocals, Dave Pirner of Soul Asylum on guitar, Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth on guitar, Dave Grohl of Nirvana and the Foo Fighters on drums, and Mike Mills of R.E.M on bass cut the performance soundtrack that producer Don Was contrived for Softley's Beatle actors to mime. Their music is full of tiny thrills, surprises, trips, and falls, but you don't really get the feeling of the Indra or the Kaiserkeller or any other Hamburg joint. But you do get an Indie underground super group of sorts covering a band that, at this stage in their career, were basically a cover band. Features 12 rock & roll classics including, 'Money (That's What I Want)', 'Long Tall Sally', 'Twist & Shout', 'Bad Boy', 'Please Mr. Postman', 'C'mon Everybody', 'Rock & Roll Music', 'Slow Down', 'Roadrunner', 'Carol', 'Good Golly Miss Molly' and '20 Flight Rock'.
