Alan Wilder kindly took part in a question and answer session with the filmmakers and audience at the Clapham Picturehouse on December 1st, 2009, and our friends Matt Killip and Owen Oppenheimer filmed it for us. After the film we all went to the bar and Alan was the life and soul of the party, signing autographs, chatting with everyone and posing for pictures whilst the lovely Nervous Stephen and the ‘godlike’ (i’m only quoting a review! but he did invent electro and produce New Order and is a fine, fine cook!) Arthur Baker spun some classic tunes for us.
This is a shortened version of the Q&A and we may post more of it at a later date.
There is a nice review of the evening here
Some great reviews still to post. Here’s a very interesting one which looks in some detail into the film’s concerns, and its relationship to co-director Jeremy Deller’s art. Reviewer Owen Hatherley sees the film as ‘a sad, funny portrait of pop music’s multiple confusions’…

Apparently there were technical problems at two of the screenings scheduled last night December 1st at Tyneside Cinema, Newcastle and Greenwhich Picturehouse causing the shows to be cancelled. We’re really sorry about this, and we are waiting to hear if they can be rescheduled. Again, our appologies to those who did turn up only to be turned away.

Nice review in Time Out this week, either click on the scan or read it online here:
Two small screenings of the film in Germany – one in Hamburg, one in Berlin – as part of the Unerhoert Music Film Festival. Hopefully director Nick Abrahams will introduce the film at the Berlin screening.
Both screenings will be the english language versions – so we hope you can understand and read english as a lot of the film is either in english or with english subtitles.
So, the Hamburg screening is on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 9 p.m. at the cinema 3001 Kino at Schanzenstraße 75, 20357 Hamburg
and then one in Berlin on Sunday December 13th at 6pm at the Eiszeit Theatre
