Lost Nick Lowe Documentary Goes Online
The result is 'Born Fighters,' a fascinating look inside the sessions for not one but two classic albums (more on that in a minute). Screened only once on Granada Television in the UK, the film was thought lost to the bin of history, but some enterprising soul has uploaded it to Youtube and you can watch the whole thing here!
An unlikely approach was taken with these sessions. Lowe recorded 'Labour of Lust' in tandem with Dave Edmunds' album 'Repeat When Necessary,' with backing from their Rockpile bandmates Terry Williams (drums) and Billy Bremner (guitar, vocals) on both. An incredible cavalcade of friends and collaborators stopped by too: Graham Parker! Huey Lewis! Phil Lynott! Albert Lee! See if you can spot them all.
