Not sure how widely known this might be, but word on the street is that Bob Stanley is starting work on a new film project, tentatively titled Hungry Beat. It’s themed around the whole C86 thang, the idea being, one hopes, to redress the balance somewhat in terms of what the moniker has come to signify over the years. As part of the project, the team are looking for any film or video footage that anyone might have of (and I hesitate to use the term here) ‘indiepop’ bands from around those years. So anyone who has some old VHS tapes or super 8 film gathering dust in attics or basements of those old Talulah Gosh or Pastels shows, or maybe some McCarthy or Wolfhounds gigs that were surreptitiously caught for posterity? Maybe someone has some of the old Living Room shows recorded somewhere? If you have anything you think could be of relevance, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll pass the info on.
