In 1990, Seattle rock band Mother Love Bone had gained national attention and were just weeks away from the release of their highly anticipated debut album “Apple” when lead singer Andrew Wood died at the age of 24. With infectious optimism, flamboyant stage presence and haunting lyrics, Wood had been a creative force in the Seattle music scene throughout the ’80s. He fronted his group Malfunkshun in the alter-ego character of “Landrew The Love Child.” He later joined former Green River members (and future Pearl Jam founders) Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament to form Mother Love Bone. Within a year, the band signed with Polygram, released their six-track EP SHINE and were plotting their full-length debut. At the same time, other Seattle groups were starting to gain attention, including the band of Wood’s friend and roommate Chris Cornell, Soundgarden. But Mother Love Bone’s career was cut short before it could truly blossom. Inspired by the tribute album TEMPLE OF THE DOG, director Scot Barbour was compelled to find out all he could about the man. The resulting documentary tribute explores Andrew’s passions, relationships, struggles, music and the great impact he had on others. Intimate conversations with family, friends and band mates are interwoven with song lyrics, rare concert footage and candid home movies. MALFUNKSHUN sheds light on the ’80s Seattle music scene, and celebrates the life and legend of the charismatic singer who inspired so many.
