I never, ever, expected to see a film being made about MC Tunes.

Apparently there will be a Q and A with Mr Locket.

I believe MC Tunes also featured in 'Diary Of A Bad Lad'.

Maybe someone could ask him when 'The North At It's Heights' Japanese deluxe re-issue is due?

Good point, is it not 2 years or so since the deluxe version was announced? I seem to remember Graham saying it had been mastered and featured some rare bonus stuff?

This is nt the Nish Clish film.
Im sure it will go up on You Tube ,and we will let you know when it does.

Yes the remastering happened, Recent events in Japan will make it less likely .
Im sure it will be a digital at some point (with the extra tracks).
ZTT has been in a state of flux recently ..lets see what happens when it settles.

from http://www.greenroomarts.org :

Nish, Clish, Bangin : The MC Tunes Tapes

In 1990, filmmaker Howard Walmsley was commissioned by ZTT records to make a short documentary film of Manchester rap artist Nicky Lockett aka MC Tunes. At the peak of his popularity, Tunes had 3 hit singles and a highly acclaimed debut album, The North at its Heights, in collaboration with innovative producers 808 State. An outspoken, controversial figure, Nicky was regularly featured on TV and radio, clocking up column inches in both music and tabloid press.

Somewhere along the way things didn’t quite work out as planned. Tunes lost his record deal with ZTT and the project was shelved. In 2010 Walmsley decided to finally get the project off his desk. Much of the original media was damaged or decayed : Maxell weathers better than Sony, he can report.

However, tapes containing rough-cut working copies made over the years did survive, forming the archive foundation of this film. These gritty analogue images, some heavily distressed, intercut with interviews shot in 2010, form a montage spanning 20 years.

Featuring tracks from 808 State, Dust Junkys and the Ugly, interviews with co-conspirators, family and friends, this is a raw, uncompromising account of the life of MC Tunes.

Running time 55 mins

I was fully intending to go to this last night but too many late nights took their toll on me and I fell asleep! I woke up at half 8.

Nevermind - let's hope I can make the SoT gig.

You missed a top night - I do hope the film gets a wider distribution - it does deserve to be seen.

I might join you at the SoT gig - assuming trains (and hotels) around the Bank Holiday weekend don't prove to be a (complete) joke! :P
