Release Notes



An engaging documentary about the titular Memphis garage punk musician (a.k.a. Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr.), whose inner demons fueled a furiously prolific career, which was cut off by his untimely death at the age of 29. Lindsey himself makes for a fairly outgoing interview subject, but the real attraction here is the dedication and care shown for him and his memory by the close-knit community of Memphis musicians and fans.
