Pretty exciting. They just got support for two AC/DC stadium shows in the US too...
I'm sure they said they were showing up there
Run after them and ask. Were they goofballs?
leaving behind their lovely Anvil odour. They're doing an in-store at HMV Oxford Street next week I believe, if you really want to catch them.
They only popped their heads in really, but I saw that goofy Steve "Lips" Ludlow grin.
for the documentary. The UK distribution arm of our company had the UK rights too - the guys are really hardworking in supporting the film. I guess it's in their interest, but you'd be surprised how demanding some people ("talent") get when a film is doing well.
You know the score, names, ludicrous demands, nothing but green fruit pastilles, etc
but I'd get into trouble I think.
But it's really frustrating - it's hard to get distributors to take it on because it's a documentary and that's hard to market. Everyone who watches it loves it, but in these difficult times they want commercial fare and a safe bet.
It's Spinal Tap, but real.
It starts a bit like that but then it turns into something much broader. I found it really touching, almost welled up at one point. It's about hope and love and aspirations and various other things. Easily head and shoulders better than anything I've seen this year. More 'real' than The Wrestler, more 'feelgood' than Slumdog, it's just a brilliant film.
When's the DooVooDoo out Bleak?
Because that's all I've actually understood from what I've heard so far - not seen it yet.
Lots of people think they're actually a hoax band after seeing the film but they are indeed for real.
It's one way of marketing it but the film has lots of other really heartwarming stuff which they could have emphasised too - it's a decision on what angle to take I guess.
What's DooVooDoo monpot?
Um, next week I believe.
Whenever I've mentioned it to people who live beyond the Tube network, more often than not you get back a blank stare. In London you could barely avoid the posters the past 6 months.
but it wouldn't surprise me if it was London-centric. With characters like those they would have been concentrating on publicity though, which would have been nation-wide. I don't think word got out as much as hoped so it didn't perform as well theatrically as in the US, but I reckon it'll be a big DVD seller.
