I think I've got it on an extremely old VHS cassette from the time, which I never watch cos I haven't got a VCR anymore - tell you what, I'll look for it this weekend - PM me your address and if I find it you can have it - it's also got the punk film DOA on it which is hilarious, but I've seen it too many times

which is a list of films shown by me and the place I used to curate, there's too many to list really. Some are short films, some are docs, I just did them by alphabetical order but there are some gems in there.

El Hombre Invisible
Bronco Bullfrog

The Wanderers (dir Kathryn Bigelow, not the other one, which looks incredibly naff)

Has someone mentioned 'A Clockwork Orange'? (surely) - seminal youth-gang-panic scenario ensued with tragic results for cinema-lovers. I saw it when it came out, luckily...and surprisingly did not set about kicking tramps to death afterwards...)

I mentioned that one, I think, and how the kids were supposedly inspired (in Burgess's mind, I mean) by teddy boys. However I was misconstrued as saying that the teds were fictional... :rolleyes:

El Hombre Invisible
They were, weren't they?

The look of Alex and his gang was part skinhead, obviously, complete with Greaser opponents. That look in itself became a case of life imitating art for a few gangs...we took to wearing a lot of white...and even bowlers...:slanted::D...forgive me...we were very young (the local fleapit let anyone in as long as they paid, in case you're wondering)

The Kandy Tangerine Man
Horace Ove's ''Pressure'' is a fantastic and sadly overlooked movie about a black teenager growing up in Notting Hill in the early 70's.

It contains a scene in a blues dance and one in a soul club {The Birds Nest in West Hampstead}.Black Power meetings .Youths hanging out in Portobello.Shoplifting,squatting and run ins with parents and the police

It's shot in a semi documentry style using both trained actors and local youths.

If you havent seen it:Try to Imagine a Black British Quadrophenia,influenced by French New Wave cinema.

Weekender

I dont think it's ever been on TV and only had a limited release in the mid 70's.I caught it a few years ago at The Barbican along with a Q&A with Horace Ove.It is out on DVD now though.Highly recommended!

The weekender movie is great.My friend Wiz directed it.He told me the idea behind it was
''Saturday Night Fever'' meets ''Quadrophenia'' on an E.You can't say fairer than that now,can you?

electronica doc - Modulations. surprisingly not bad. def better than all the ones that came after it.

don't suppose anybody knows what the last track that plays during the credit roll? most probably i'm missing something somewhere, however it doesn't appear to be mentioned amongst the credits, website or accompanying cd release?
