Next Thursday, April 7 at 8pm, Mayo Movie World presents the Foo Fighters Back and Forth which chronicles the 16 year history of the Foo Fighters: From the band's first songs created as cassette demos Dave Grohl recorded during his tenure as Nirvana's drummer, through its ascent to their Grammy-winning, multi-platinum, arena and stadium headlining status as one of the biggest rock bands on the planet.
Produced by Nigel Sinclair and produced and directed by Oscar and Emmy winner James Moll, the movie culminates with the making of the band's new album Wasting Light, a process in which the band pushed itself forward by going fully back to basics and recording in Grohl's garage completely on analogue tape. No computers, no software - just a band recording an album to tape in a garage. The new record also marks the Foos' first full-length effort with legendary producer Butch Vig, with whom Grohl worked on Nirvana's classic album Nevermind. The documentary will be followed by a performance from the band playing their new album Wasting Light in its entirety.
