Dexys: Nowhere Is Home

Kevin Rowland is being chased by myth, but he is still able to outrun it. Unfriendly, slippery, and ugly, he resists idealizing his past, tries to not get bitter remembering his big failures or his big hits (he doesn’t even consider playing back his chart-toppers “Geno” or “C’mon Eileen”), and turns his nose up w...

Finisterre

Film critic Andy Kellman celebrated the release of Finisterre (2002), the sixth album by London supra-pop trio Saint Etienne, as a return to the surprise they had produced a decade earlier, when they busted into the scene with the dazzling Foxbase Alpha (1992). “Just like back then –Kellman wrote– the record’s flow is deligh...

How We Used to Live

“The beach awaits below the pavement, but what lies beyond the city?”, actor Ian McShane’s voice over asks at a magical moment of How We Used to Live. The city is London, and it is spread out here through the protein-filled archive of the British Film Institute like a huge tapestry, or a landscape, or an epic visual poem. From its...

Lawrence of Belgravia

The Belgravia neighborhood in London once had musicians Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Frédéric Chopin among its famous inhabitants. We should add the name Lawrence Hayward, who is not famous like his predecessors, but is obsessed with being so. Felt, Denim, and Go Kart Mozart are the cult bands lead by this failing dandy who is best kno...

Monty the Lamb

Monty the Lamb celebrates the Hendon FC, a soccer team with a history of humble glories that was forced to leave what had been its home field for 82 years in 2008. And we say “celebrates” instead of “cries” because the short film features the irresistible chorus of “Soft Like Me” in the background and is starred...

Seven Summers

In Seven Summers, Paul Kelly returns seven years later to the East London landscape he had depicted in What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day? in order to (re)discover the area, which was first an industrial wasteland, then a modern Olympic city, and now seems trapped in a state of constant transformation.

Take Three Girls: The Dolly Mixture Story

The wonderful short life of a girl trio from Cambridge fits in this mini-doc, diminutive like the naive pop they played with so much charm between the late seventies and the early eighties. Even though they were twee-pop pioneers, they failed to make it at a time when female bands ran after Blondie’s atomic pop + sexuality marketing or built...

This Is Tomorrow

Paul Kelly (director), Andrew Hinton (producer), and the brains behind that perfect pop band called Saint Etienne (Bob Stanley and Pete Wiggs) were the first work group to have a 12-months fixed residence at the Royal Albert Hall, for a whole year. In that beautiful concert hall complex located in London’s South Bank, they were both curators...

Vashti Bunyan: From Here to Before

Out of the endless legends the Sixties have provided to pop and rock mythology, few are as fascinating as the one of Vashti Bunyan, the fairy singer and composer who, right before reaching stardom, set out on a wagon trip from London to Scotland, where she put out all the lights around her in order to live a simple life in anonymity for several dec...

What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day?

What Have You Done Today Mervyn Day? is the playful title of the second part of the Saint Etienne’s London Trilogy. It was filmed when London 2012 had been announced and it explores the wild and abandoned landscape of pre-Olympic Games Hackney Wick and the Lower Lea Valley. We watch Mervyn Day (Noah Kelly) go off on his paper round as the voi...
