A random selection of things that have got me through the lockdown.
MONDAY 25TH MAY
Jaws (Universal) So much more than just a monster movie.
SATURDAY 23RD MAY
The Empire Strikes Back (Lucasfilm Ltd.) Family issues. Sexual tension. Yoda. Dark, dramatic and fucking awesome. The best Star Wars movie, closely followed by Rogue One. Yeah, I said it.
TUESDAY 19TH MAY
Records on repeat (various) I've misunderstood PiL. It's OK. I have seen the light. Brilliant documentary. Also, I stumbled upon Swell Maps by accident and now I can't live without them.
FRIDAY 8TH MAY
Pistols binge (various formats) The Filth And The Fury, Arena's Punk And The Pistols, BBC2's Malcolm McLaren: Artful Dodger, Janet Street-Porter's The Year Of Punk and her post-Pistols Lydon interview. Jon Savage's England's Dreaming, Jordan's Defying Gravity and Brian Southall's 90 Days At EMI. Round here punks' not dead.
WEDNESDAY 29TH APRIL
Podcasts (various) They're everywhere!
Never Mind The Bollocks Sex Pistols (Virgin) One of the greatest Rock 'N' Roll albums ever made.
SATURDAY 25TH APRIL
They'll Love Me When I'm Dead (Netflix) One of the best documentaries I've seen. Excellent editing and brilliant use of footage.
WEDNESDAY 8TH APRIL
Northern Soul (Netflix) Yes.
Tiger King (Netflix) Wow.
Silence (Sony Classical/France) Classy.
Berlin (Germany) I was all set for a sexy time in Berlin watching EN until COVID cock-blocked me. You're such a dick, COVID.
