Based On a True Story

by The Movies

The Movies simply legendary in Los Angeles. The band is entirely idealized—purported to be larger than life. All in all, Based On A True Story is a dazzling synth-heavy testament to, what has proved to be, an interminable reign over the fringe.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer Timothy James is the commanding figure in The Movies. His antics, bravado, and misbehavior are the stuff of Silverlake legend. As with the songs James writes for his band, the legend of The Movies themselves, too, can only be based on a true story....
