‘The Seeds: Pushin’ Too Hard’ Documentary To Premiere August 16
The Seeds: Pushin’ Too Hard, the longform documentary about the classic L.A. garage-punk band, directed by Neil Norman, will have its premiere Aug. 16 at the Egyptian Theatre at the American Cinematheque in Hollywood.
…The Seeds — led by charismatic singer Sky Saxon, along with keyboard player Daryl Hooper, guitarist Jan Savage and drummer Rick Andridge — were all emigres to early ’60s Hollywood. After building a reputation in underground clubs such as Bido Litos, the group busted out in late 1966 with the classic anthem “Pushin’ Too Hard,” which went Top 40 nationally in early 1967.
Using vintage footage, rare photos, memorabilia and audio, and fresh interviews with bandmembers and associates, the documentary also includes interviews with fans of the band, like Iggy Pop, the Beach Boys’ Bruce Johnston, Love’s Johnny Echols and members of the Bangles, with narration by original GTO and I’m With the Band author Pamela Des Barres.
