Basically, a copy of the Johnny Moped documentary by Fred Burns. Fab.
Great Queen Street, London.
Last night I went to the premiere of “Basically, Johnny Moped“, a film by Fred Burns. The documentary is about a failed rock band from Croydon, who really didn’t fail that much, because after the movie was shown, the band played live (together with their first bassist, Captain Sensible), they were incredibly good and the venue was heaving. It really was an amazing night out. Get the DVD!
I’ve uploaded a few photos I took last night onto Flickr.
The Johnny Moped documentary Basically, Johnny Moped will be screened on September 19 at KOKO, followed by a live performance of the band. Here’s a review of the film at CamdenReview and here’s another by Zoë Howe.
“[…] they did have some talent. But a band is never going to succeed if it has a singer who won’t turn up for gigs and a guitarist who was permanently drunk.” (Camden Review)
I’ve added a few photos I took at The Open East Festival to Flickr.
