Electric Fetus

A rock-icon during the late 1960s and 1970s, one would forgive Robert Plant had he sat back on his laurels following the 1980 demise of Led Zeppelin, and ever-after wallowed in past glories. But Percy Plant is made of sterner stuff, and with his ever-expanding musical pallet - which has informed his sonic structure since day one - he has travelled through a myriad of musical styles in the past 35 years, ploughing and essaying the plantations of Mississippi, the desserts and townships of darkest Africa and the settlements of the Appalachians. All of which have contributed to his current status as balladeering country troubadour. This film follows Robert's incredible and on-going tour of musical styles and acts as travelogue in its unique approach to documenting and reviewing a career that has been built on endless fascination, consistent experimentation and a unique talent that makes the incorporation of his discoveries into a popular contemporary form, seem effortless. Covering all-at-once, his pre-Zeppelin career, his years as front-man in that legendary act and his ever extraordinary solo-career, the program will delight anyone with even a passing interest in the great man. Featuring rare footage, performance archive, recorded interviews, contributions from his closest collaborators, expert critique from the finest music writers, plus location film, news reports seldom seen photographs and a host of other features. MVD.
