Damon talks about his musical upbringing, the mix tape cassettes his mother made him, the first record he bought and the first concert he attended. We hear of the influences Damon brought to the recording of the album, the songwriting process and stories behind the songs, musicians, producers and album artwork. Presenting exclusive interviews and archive footage, this epic documentary brings the story of Schuldiner and his work and legacy to film for the first time.
Matt Johnson of post-punk band THE THE, known for his intensely personal and political songs, has remained silent as a singer-songwriter for the last 15 years. Conflicted by creative inertia, he has observed from the sidelines as corporate state propaganda has swamped the cultural airwaves. To try and purge his feelings of disenchantment—and to attempt to relocate his mojo and muse—Johnson decides to challenge the narrow media consensus through his own radio broadcast.
A long-term listener of shortwave radio, he launches Radio Cineola, his conceptual version of this romantic medium, via a live midday to midnight marathon. With absolute pitch and perfect intonation, her voice spanned three octaves, her phrasing seemed effortless, and the odd moments in her nearly year career when she sang off-key were few and far between. There is almost no style of music in which she did not excel, and her numerous — now legendary — recordings of the Great American Songbook with pieces by US composers such as George and Ira Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington remained a benchmark for the interpretation of those songs for generations of singers.
The Doom Doc is a visceral, immersive dive into the hazy black hole that lies at one extreme of the musical spectrum. A new feature film that documents — in exceptional detail — the arrival of House music in Manchester from Chicago in the s, through to the Acid House explosion of and a further 30 years of its phenomenal impact. It is a truly remarkable social study of a subculture that helped put Manchester on the worldwide music map.
Tired of hiding from the police and their stagnating career, they organise one last manic techno rave in the desert, under dangerous circumstances. In the entire history of the Grammys, only six women have been nominated for the Producer of the Year award, and no woman has ever won. In Play Your Gender, Juno Award-winning producer Kinnie Starr is on a quest to find out why this disparity exists by speaking to music industry stars and veterans about the realities of being a woman in the recording studio.
A look back at Liverpool's vibrant music scene in the s, centred around the rise and fall of The Big Three. This is a tale of headstrong talent and dark despair: English singer-songwriter Adrian Borland, whose poetic lyrics, passionate vocals and compelling guitar work fuelled the critically lauded, Stooges - and Joy Division-hued post-punk band The Sound, battled mental illness before taking his own life in Back in Tehran they try their luck selling their illegally manufactured album.
When Anoosh is arrested, there seems to be no hope left. For confirmation see "The James Gray Collection", photographic archives - volume 27, image Although the front of the building has been totally reclad you can still make out the outline of the 4 distinctive vertical columns on the front at North Street Portslade.

It is clearly the Pavilion and not the Rothbury. Probaby no longer suitable for wedding photos though! The woman in the photo is opposite the southern end of Albion Street. The camera is looking NW. Her name was Maud; does anyone remember her? I was an extra in the film playing a French?
The parts I was in were filmed at the entrance to Bramber Castle and on the Adur river bank about a half mile up stream from the Bramber Bridge. The picture of the unknown cinema is definitely not the Rothbury. I don't remember that advert pillar and I used to go to the Rothbury three times a week if there were good films on. Not only that, but my mother was an usherette at said cinema along with Mrs Betty Rogers and her two sisters.
In addition to my last comment, that cinema sure looks like the Pavillion, or the Bug Hutch as we used to call it. My brother-law worked as a bingo caller at The Rothbury when it changed to a bingo club in the early s and he said it is The Rothbury, and that "advert pillar" is just a film prop placed there by the film company. Re the great Rothbury v Pavilion debate: It's interesting that most people with personal memories believe it is the Rothbury.
Maybe this is because it was the more popular and classier of the two. The Pavilion went into a steep decline when people were moved from South Portslade to Mile Oak during the mids' slum clearance, which is why it closed in February North Street used to be full of shops, and there were lots of houses in the vicinity but the whole area became full of industrial units. Coming back to the debate, I can say categorically that filming for Battle of the V1 took place at the Pavilion Cinema, North Street, during the week ending 9th November The film crew arrived early one morning and stayed until the afternoon matinee had begun.
Arc lamps were used for interior shots to enhance the lighting. The cinema was made to look like a Polish cinema with Polish ads replacing posters and stills from British films and the ticket kiosk showed prices in Polish currency. As Teresa Burgess's brother-in-law said, the advert pillar on the left was put there by the film company.
Having read all the various comments it would be nice to finally clear up the debate as to exactly what cinema was used, with some real evidence photos etc. John Nihill seems quite specific on many points, I'm interested to know on what basis, did you watch the actual filming? Or do you have any photos of it?

A coloured version of Battle of the V1 was recently shown on True Movies. The information is easily verifiable. It was reported in the local press at the time i. If you can't get down there and still doubt it, look at a photo of the Pavilion building now and compare it. Look at the 4 vertical columns beneath the cladding and the building's width. You might also like to consider how wide the pavement outside the Rothbury is.
The pavement in North Street is pretty narrow. Interesting to hear of the colour version. Mr Lee did wear a Nazi uniform during filming, appered in a Shoreham scene and is also way above six feet in height and he wouldn't have been famous enough to recognise in The James Gray Collection photo vol 27 image 43 was taken at the same period as the film was shot. Just been catching up after a long absence. I can confirm that the cinema used in the film was the Pavilion, North Street, Portslade.

My late aunt recounted her experience as an extra in the film, I believe that she was a member of the audience. Talking about cinemas, I used to live at 5 St Georges Place, just opposite St Peter's church, but sadly we moved from Brighton in Does anyone remember a cinema which was just a few doors down from Gloucester Road Place or Street.
I can remember them having a big cage in the foyer which had several monkeys in it. I think it was something to do with a film they were showing at the time. I can also remember a huge wurlitzer organ would rise up just in front of the stage with the organist on a seat and he would play popular music until the film started. Is the cinema still there and does anyone remember the organist or the monkeys and why they were there?
When I was younger I must have gone to the Rothbury cinema in Franklin Road at least a couple of hundred times every Saturday morning as a child just for starters. The cinema in the photo is not the Rothbury. It is the Pavilion in North Street. As John Nihill quite rightly states, the area outside the Rothbury was much wider and was more of a forecourt than a pavement. Delighted to come across this discussion on the internet. Bernard Newman author of 'They Saved London', which led to the film was my grandfather. I've been to a little research into my grandfather and bought the DVD for the film.
Me and my 81year old Dad watched it yesterday. My parents went to the premier at Leicester Square all those years ago. There might be more info in his autobiography that I am re-reading at the moment. John Nihill is right about the cinema picture, before reading any comments it looked just like the North St Pavillion. Although living in upper Portslade as a child I would visit the cinema especially on Saturday mornings. In we held our wedding reception in the hall above the Rothbury cinema- ham salad twelve and six a head, so I would recognise the exterior of this location as well.
I have lived in Yorkshire now for 53 years but still visit Portslade quite often. Jack Carr and my dad were friends in the merchant navy together and they were both in this film together one of my family has a photo of them both together in german uniform. My father died in August this year and it is great to see the stories about the making of this film. Great to read all these first hand reminiscences of Battle of the V1.
Anyone interested in the shooting of another fifties film 'The Tall Headlines' in Portslade should look at the comments under Alan Phillips's amazingly detailed article on Belgrave Square slum clearance. We are having a celebration. Is it possible to have a copy or perhaps I can get a copy made of the picture of Jack and your father dressed up a German soldiers please? I would like to add my condolences to Sara George after the death of her father Ray George. As a kid I lived in the same street as Ray and his family in Bennett Road. Ray was a decent bloke who always had time to speak to the younger kids in the street.
At 15, during the '60s, I was the money collector and sometime bingo caller at the Rothbury, not in the main hall, but in the cafe bit, doing the quick games. One night a woman shouted House and her teeth fell out onto the filthy floor, but she shoved them back in, fluff and all. There was a club upstairs. Anyone remember those days? I can confirm that the cinema is certainly Portslade not Brighton.
The street scene is in fact Brighton. These houses were cleared soon after shooting.
The rest of the locations are as discussed: The Battle of the V1. Any ideas on the dilapidated windmill's location - was it Surrey or Sussex? I don't remember the cinema, but I do know that at the time the film was made, my grandfather John Ephram Greaves owned it, along with two other cinemas in that area. One called The New Kinema. One night Jack Carr, still dressed as A German soldier film extra, stole and drove one of the armoured trucks from the parking lot all the way home at night after missing the last bus.
