The history of the influential Detroit-based rock publication.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Cheekily declaring itself “America’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll Magazine,” CREEM launched in 1969 Detroit as an irreverent upstart to rival the pre-eminent rock publication of the day, Rolling Stone. Scrappy, subversive, and gleefully puerile, the magazine soon became wildly popular, thanks in large part to its forward-thinking publisher, Barry Kramer, and its gonzo journalist, Lester Bangs. Scott Crawford’s film offers a riotous look back on CREEM‘s history, the dysfunctional family of outsiders behind its pages, and its lasting impact on music and culture.
