Has anyone seen 'Control'...the film about the life of Ian Curtis and Joy Division.......its brilliant....go and see it!! ....it doesn't romanticise the life of a rock star like some of the other films do...it's gritty, witty and wise!
Plus it's got a wkd soundtrack.


10 Barlow thumbs up ( We're all a bit inbred in Weatherfield!)

What other films about bands/ music do you recommed OR wish were made?

.....I think I'd like to see a flim about the Smiths......

I know they were a made up band, but I love Spinal Tap.

The mockumentary rocks like a bastard. Shocked

I know Kelly likes the Tina Turner Story!!!

I'm looking forward to seeing it too. I love 24 Hour Party People and Wayne's World. Walk the Line is quite good too.

I'd love to see the Sultans' Story make the big screen.

Yea A Sultans Movie would be great!!
I think they should
Hollywood-ize it a bit and have
a few struggles......Like fighting for the right to wear PVC and Tu tus in Cork........

....and rename the first Album Casual Sex in the Multiplex.
(at That moment they were closer than ever)

....It should end with a duet with George Bush in a Petrol/ Gas Station singing 'Texaco I Love You!'.........about the fight for oil in Iraq.

.....And of course feature Governer Schwarzennegger singing Robocop!!!!

God Bless America!!! Wink


Any other suggestions for this Sultans Musical Epic???

lick my lovepump, Tap is a classic, but if you want the real macoy then it has to be Stop Making Sense, if you were lucky enough to get the Observer last week.

Has anyone seen the film 'Once'?...it's got yer man Glen Hansard from the Frames in it......it's about a busker who records a CD with Czech immigrant.....I thought the music and storyline were georgeous!!

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0907657/

Also.....has anyone seen the Bob Dylan film 'I'm not there'? It was a bit abstract but I loved it.....i think you've gotta know your Dylan to get it....Ken fell asleep......It could have done with being half an hour shorter....but still a BRILLIANT film if you like that sorta thing!!

....somehow I managed to get a degree by analysing the lyrics of Dylan for me dissertation...what a complete dosssssss!!! ...I don't know how I got away with it!!...I think I claimed he was a poet Laureate ..or some shite like that!!!!!......it helps if you wanna stay awake during a film like this.

What a great year for Music Films; Control, Once and 'I'm not there' in one year!!!!...and not a cliche in sight...... It's just a shame they didn't re-release Spice Girls the Movie Wink ....... Next......in WIDE SCREEN- Ping the Musical!!!..in Turnip-vision...the drug of the Nation........

Wasn't gone on Control but wasn't gone on Joy Division either to be honest. Anyone seen Dig? It's about the Dandy Warhols & the Brian Jonestown Massacre. Neither are bands I like but the films a fucking belter.

Happy Pingmas all.

Control - Very good indeed, when I saw it I only knew a couple of JD tracks

Spinal Tap - The very best, why don't you just make 10 louder?

Sultans the Movie - Somewhere in there would be a 5 min Finding Nemoesque animation involving a small fish and a a whale talking about the merits of various Irish Punk Rock bands.
