A TOE-TAPPING shimmy through the marriage of music and cinema takes place this March – in the new Sound/Screen London Festival.
Put together by promoters Cadiz Music, Vive Le Rock and Rock & Roll Cinema, it boasts an super-exciting roster of flicks, offering a chance to check out the best in music documentaries and a mouth-watering array of talent on hand to take Q&A sessions afterwards.
The festival runs from March 21-28 and takes place in Camden High Street’s Koko, Oxford Street’s 100 Club and the Regent Street Cinema. Review has learned an addition to an already starry bill includes an opening-night premiere of Uncaged – the story of American singer and Fall collaborator Brix Smith and her band The Extricated. This will be at The 100 Club, with the band playing live featuring Smith and fellow ex-Fall members Paul & Stephen Hanley.
Other highlights include Bunch of Kunst, the documentary about shouty Nottingham post-punk rockers The Sleaford Mods – a gem of a film – and one that shows how they have made music for all on their own terms. And then there is the reggae legend Lee “Scratch” Perry, who is appearing at a screening of the doc on his life, Lee Scratch Perry’s Vision of Paradise. It’s being screened at Koko with live music and DJs on March 26.
