Irish Rock Documentary Tells the Other Side of the Story
11 Mar 2013 : By Claire Murrihy
“Good Cake Bad Cake-The Story of LIR” is a new Irish documentary by IFTA-nominated director Shimmy Marcus of Zanzibar films (Soulboy, Aidan Walsh: Master of the Universe).

The film documents an Irish band's epic struggle to reach the top. Unlike the thousands of "success stories" told in music documentaries, this is the other side of the coin, a story of the fate that will inevitably befall most bands.

The documentary charts the origins of a young band from Dublin, once tipped to be the next U2, who dreamed of hitting the big-time only to see their hopes destroyed by a multitude of disasters. It is a heartbreaking tale of a band who never knew when to quit and whose downfall is only matched in grandeur by the scale of their ambition.

Formed in the late ‘80s, the Dublin outfit released three critically acclaimed, but commercially underachieving albums. Inveterate road warriors, they survived legal battles, collapsed record deals and near-death bus crashes on their epic journey which is now in its 25th year!

The film will premiere in The Sugar Club at 7pm on the 20th of March followed by an after party and a D.J set from LIR. There will be screenings in The Factory Cinema at 8pm and 9:40pm from the 21st-24th of March. Tickets are available from Tickets.ie.
