Dee Snyder is charming and the movie is crammed with great archival footage of the band, ranging from their early days as a David Bowie cover act to their jamming onstage with Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead on British TV.
The deep dive into the origin story is an illuminating breakdown of how [TS] succeeded in the rock business, amassing a cult following while rocking every bar and tavern on the suburban circuit throughout Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut.
