Stranglers Film? Any news?

Post by Someone like you? » 09 Feb 2013, 15:25

Sex Pistols have become a bore,
The Clash but brief explored.
The good Drs Feeling good,
OCC wasn`t spared the rod.


5 minutes and their almost there!
............5 minutes and their almost there!
......5 minutes and their bought to the frame! They should have more than 5 minutes fame?

Everyone got their 5 minutes of fame,
apart from the band with bare spoke name.
The MiB oft overlooked,
apart from a few old books!

5 minutes and their almost there!
............5 minutes and their almost there!
......5 minutes bought to the frame! They should have more than 5 minutes fame.

The detractors lied,and
Their words they sting,
now lie buried with their broken wings!

(Repeat chorus)

Ok! Its work in progress.... WHEN IS SOMEONE GONNA MAKE A STRANGLERS FILM? JULIEN TEMPLE RUMOURS? Others in the frame? Its "About Time", the MiB had their "5 minutes" of fame on the Big screen to educate the masses of THE REAL Bad boys of English Rock of Zepplinesque proportions, who out-did all the peers, but who sadly been over-looked by the same bigots of the music industry who over-looked em way back when? Jeez, Jet Black approaching 74/75 now ! It`d better happen soon?

Too bloody right. I read on a blog some where (interview with JJ + Wilko) about an upcoming project, and that fiming has commenced on Band members,fans etc.
Is that particular project going ahead? If so how far down the line is it? What news? (If any)?

Any-one shed, ANY light?

Yes I've just sent a 31 year old t shirt to the moderator on the damned forum a scan of course.
They are asking for rare and obscure stuff that could be included in the film,surprised stranglers people haven't asked on here yet, I think they might in time.

On reflection?
After trawling the inter-web,and seeing just how many crap bands/artists/subject matter etc. is finding its way into another more lucrative high profile market ?
I had just had a thought! (Rare)! :idea:
Finish the film....(forget the ballet)?

Move onto STRANGLED, The Stranglers Musical....... Then milk that sacred cow for ALL its worth!
JJ & the boys will be too busy on the circuit doing Jonathon Ross to do anything else?
(Enough fans to put bums on seats)!? :mrgreen:

Agreed. 2nd fave band of the new-wave/punk era. Be a long film,if they include ALL who`ve passed through their ranks?
