This Damned Band

Classic Rock in the key of Faust

by Chad

I have often said that I was born just a bit too late. I have had a severe addiction to the music scene that preceded my birth by about a decade. Late 60’s and early 70’s rock bands not only had great music but also great behind the scenes stories of groupies, destroyed hotels, heavy handed road managers, sex, drugs and rock and roll. One of my true favorites has always been Led Zeppelin with layer upon layer of wild stories of mudsharks and Anton LaVey. Theatricality in all things. Every time I watch The Song Remains the Same I revel in the fantasy sequences with John Paul Jones riding around like a Highwayman, Peter Grant as a Gangster, and Robert Plant wandering around a field with his kids. So cool.

 

So I was intrigued when I saw the solicitation in Previews a few months ago for a new Dark Horse comic written by Paul Cornell with art by Tony Parker and color by Lovern Kindzierski.

“1972: the world’s most famous rock band thought they were “worshiping Satan,” only to find they were actually . . . worshiping Satan.”

What a great idea.

 

The story follows a band “Motherfather” that is more or less Led Zeppelin with a touch of the Beatles and the Who thrown in for flavor, that is making a documentary film about their latest world tour. We see into the crazy lives they live and learn that keeping up the appearance of being mysterious and  “worshiping” the dark powers and such is harder than it looks but all a part of the PR game. But careful with what you wish for.   “Real” bad guys can ruin your gig.

 

Dark Horse once again has done a great job of finding a new and interesting comic story (see Lady Killer, Fight Club 2, Harrow County, and the Massive) that is different enough from the rest of the new comic rack to peak interest. It has tons of little things that make it special. The layout is fantastic. Lovern Kindzierski has done a top shelf job of using color to capture the look and feel of Rock Posters of the period. The book ends with a discography of the band, complete with cover art. Brilliant. The characters are definite homages to real people like Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Peter Grant, Yoko Ono, and Keith Moon, but still have unique elements within the story. I can’t wait to read the next issue.
