Madvillian: "Raid" (Plus, a trailer for the new Stones Throw documentary)

The Madvillian track was merely an enticement, but also validation for Our Vinyl Weighs a Ton (This is Stones Throw Records), which is, if you couldn't tell, a documentary about the very label that produced the brilliant Madvilliany album. 



As is the case with many independently funded projects lately, a Kickstarter has been enacted to help with the film's completion.  Check out the trailer below.

STONES THROW ANNOUNCES PRODUCTION OF INDEPENDENT DOCUMENTARY, OUR VINYL WEIGHS A TON (THIS IS STONES THROW RECORDS), BY FILMMAKER JEFF BROADWAY 

LOS ANGELES - Drawing on live concert footage, never-before-seen archival material, inner-circle home video and photographs and in-depth interviews with the folks who put Stones Throw on the map, director/producer Jeff Broadway's feature-length documentary, OUR VINYL WEIGHS A TON, will follow the label's enigmatic founder, Peanut Butter Wolf, as well as explore its left-of-center artists, history, culture and global following.

The production of a Stones Throw documentary began in late 2010, when French company MediaTV sent Paris-based filmmakers Sébastien Bauer and Lucas Blaya to Los Angeles to begin filming events for the label's 15th anniversary. Over several months, the two amassed over 100 hours of footage before Broadway joined the production.

The documentary is still in production, and requires further funding for its completion. Broadway has launched a Kickstarter campaign with the goal of raising $35,000 for additional production trips, shoots and the edit of the film. The duration of the campaign is 45 days, and will conclude at the end of November.

OUR VINYL WEIGHS A TON is Broadway's second music documentary - the first being CURE FOR PAIN: THE MARK SANDMAN STORY. He is also a co-founder of the Los Angeles-based production collective, Gatling Pictures.
