Filmmakers and archivists Dietmar Post & Lucía Palacios filmed the show especially for the "play loud! (live) music series" on November 12th, 2010 at Lido in Berlin (Germany).

Guru Guru is a German Krautrock band formed in 1968 as The Guru Guru Groove by Mani Neumeier (drums), Uli Trepte (bass) and Eddy Naegeli (guitar) later replaced by American Jim Kennedy (guitar). In time for their debut in 1970, Ax Genrich had replaced Kennedy to solidify the classic Guru Guru line up.

Guru Guru were related to the free jazz music scene both through their work with Swiss pianist Irène Schweizer and through Neumeier, who had already won several jazz prizes. The band was also influenced by psychedelic rock artist, such as Jimi Hendrix, Frank Zappa, The Crazy World Of Arthur Brown, Rolling Stones and early Pink Floyd. Among the band's friends were Amon Düül, Can and Xhol Caravan, with whom Guru Guru played jam sessions.

CONCEPT BEHIND THE PLAY LOUD (LIVE) MUSIC SERIES

The "play loud! (live) music series" parts from three ideas, Alan Lomax's work as an archivist and chronicler, John Peel's BBC radio sessions and the work of Direct Cinema pioneers, such as, Maysles Brothers, Leacock, Wildenhahn and Pennebaker. Filming live shows meant not to do it in a TV style but in a very personal, intuitive and adventurous style – nothing is staged for filming. You go along as it happens. Some of the live performances are filmed with only one camera in one continuous shot without any edits. Some critics have labeled it as "filmed paintings/painted films". play loud!'s music films have been called: "raw", "rough", "canny", "straightforward", "adventurous", "witty", "insightful", "direct", "non-tricksy", "economic", "minimal", "unpretentious handheld camera work", "artful film paintings" … play loud!'s intention is to furthermore create an extensive archive of interesting popular music that includes also the possibility to screen/stream material that comes from other sources. Some of the recordings - if popular demand is strong - will be offered as limited vinyl LPs.
