The series starts in 70th century New York in 1973, set in the music industry and has a couple of really big names behind it, no less than Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones and the director of the first episode is Martin Scorsese.
Joel Larsson reporters here on Kulturnytt, have looked at this new series.
What is this new TV series about?
the main character in “Vinyl” is rich, he is the director of the record company American Century that have fallen into, among other things, financial problems. I say, among other things here, it’s an impressive list of cargoes lined up during the nearly two-hour premiere episode, and it starts out as a fairly easygoing musikexposé empties eventually into a dark gangster saga
What Jagger and Scorsese made the mark in the series?
– Martin Scorsese’ve also often had the movie “Wolf of Wall Street” and the first thing that strikes you when you look at ” vinyl “is how much of that movie, purely aesthetic, as seen in the series. There are also references to the small film pressed here and there. What sets them both to is that “skin” deals with the record industry instead of the financial market. But there seems to be at least as much fulspel and decadence of the two worlds, and the characters really wallowing in drugs, sex and luxury, but also the iconic rock n roll, and maybe it’s where Mick Jagger’s contribution more visible. I suppose he has contributed his personal experience of live culture and Scorsese used its experience as king of the gangster film to breathe life into it.
How good is it?
– Yes, when dialogue with all its disruptive laddish charm, firmly attached, and the characters must be really cursed so light series really. And it may be irresistible to hear classic bands like Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and even Abba make musical performances. “Vinyl” can have the year’s best soundtrack. But sometimes it spreads it on with too much hype, as when the protagonist Rich get up the scent on one unsigned artist and hisses out “what’s that sound.” In addition, I have personally quite difficult because when an actor will portray bands and artists and mime with the songs, but it is well closest to a matter of taste.
