A new documentary about the men who discovered, mentored and co-managed The Who is set to premiere at the famed Sundance Film Festival later this month.
Lambert & Stamp , from director James D. Cooper , is the story of Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp , film directors who in 1963 set out to make a movie about England's burgeoning rock scene and set out to find an unknown band to feature in the flick.
The band they choose was The High Numbers , later to be dubbed The Who. The pair took over management of the group in 1964, ultimately leading Lambert and Stamp to found Track Records, a label that went on to sign Jimi Hendrix , among other artists.
The 2014 Sundance Film Festival takes place January 16-26, at several locations in Utah. Lambert & Stamp will premiere on January 20 at 11:45 a.m. local time at The MARC theater in Park City. A few encore screenings will be held at other venues during the fest. The movie also will be shown during the Sundance London film and music festival taking place April 25-27 at The O2 in London.
