Watch Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton: This Is Stones Throw Records (2013) - Alternative Versions.
I heard about this film over a year ago now and was immediately
interested to see it when I got a chance. My knowledge of Stones Throw
is limited perhaps, but I take an interest when I see the name because
since I saw their name on the work of Madlib and Doom, I continued to
move forward and backwards in some of their output such as Quasi, Dilla
and other names that many people may know either by name or influence.
This is important when coming to the film, because it expects and needs
you to at least already be interested in the people and also have at
least some level of knowledge of the label and the main players.
It shows this form the very start where we open on a party of some sort
happening in an open room; from here we get credits showing the main
names over animated versions of them although the main character is a
yellowy creature who, if you don't know who Quasimodo is, then probably
he looks pretty weird. After this you really don't see names on screen.
Of course people refer to others by name, and there are occasionally
names seen on posters in the background, but there is absolutely none
of the 'footers' you would often see on documentaries with names and
titles in them this is so apparent in its absence that it is a clear
decision. So, if you do not have a working knowledge of the main era of
this label and the music and artists associated with it, then this film
will not help you.
Aside from this rather closed-door approach, the film is well
structured and I guess it is a sensible approach since if you do not
know any of those involved, then probably you're not watching this
film. When the film reached the core Madlib/Dilla/Madvillan era, I was
in my comfort zone, but outside of this the film did enough to help me
when I was not. The structure follows the time-line well; giving the
main people and events enough time but without getting bogged down in
them; in particular I thought it handled several high profile deaths
very well, so that these did not become the story but rather remained
part of the story.
The contributions are varied but mostly the access to key people is
what makes it work. There are a few very big names in there too, but
they are appropriately kept brief befitting their part in the story,
and they do not fill the space just because they have a big presence
(Kweli, Mike D, West and Common for instance). The contributions
capture the sense of excitement and independence of the label, and the
nature of PB Wolf himself only the absence of Doom is noticeably by
his contributions being lifts from other interviews, but this is not
too bad. The archive footage including performances and home video is
impressively utilized so it can be enjoyed but doesn't slow the film
down by existing for the sake of it.
So, you really do need to already know a bit about the label and be
interested, because the film does require you to be (quite deliberately
so), but it is engaging and entertaining enough to carry out as long as
you come with that. The main issue I had with it was pausing it to note
down names of artists or albums from the label that I had not heard of
but wanted to check out due to what I heard in this documentary.
