  1. Fantastic Film Sharon,
    I finally saw it at Skamouth in November just before the Moonstompers' gig with Roy Ellis himself!. I'm surprised that's not on your site yet. The people really enjoyed it, quiet and attentive throughout - and this was inside a massive venue with a bar that goes on forever - and there was a rousing cheer at the end, as if a band had just finished a really entertaining set! Well done. Great film
