Piers Dennis went on the road to film Our Most Brilliant Friends, a remarkable documentary that reveals the band Slow Club on the brink of a break-up. E ven in the depths of chaos and collapse, the rockumentary can bring a sheen of glamour to life in a band. But the reality of band life is often more prosaic.
