Long Hot Summers: The Story of the Style Council
« on: October 23, 2020, 02:09:01 PM »
There seems to have been an increased focus on TSC over recent months, what with compilation albums and books, etc, well it looks like Sky are also getting in on the act.  The above documentary is scheduled for airing on the Sky Arts channel on Saturday 31st October at 9pm.  If you don't have access to the Sky Arts channel (and live in the UK) apparently it's also being aired on Freeview channel 11.

If TSC are your thing, it might be worth watching; I'll certainly be setting the record button on my old Betamax  ;)

My dad bought a Betamax too; there and then I knew I'd never ever win the lottery  :-\

Wonder if it'll ever be shown in the US?

I was never really a massive fan of the Council at the time though I did buy the singles from Speak like a Child to Wanted. Solid Bond and My Ever Changing Moods being my absolute favs. Still, looking forward to this documentary.
And my soul has been psychedelicized.

I thought it was a great film ..... I was fortunate enough to have seen them live but it was a very long time ago  ;)

I've recorded it but haven't got round to watching it yet.  I'm hoping to get some time over the weekend to put that right.
