Title: Talking Pictures TV
Post by: Chilli on May 22, 2020, 11:20:20 AM
I've mentioned this TV channel in another recent post (re: the Lambretta documentary), however the main Modculture site has highlighted a number of other recent, and forthcoming programmes on this channel, and I thought it worthy of its own topic where we might share details of forthcoming programmes that might be of interest to people on here.

Looking ahead, the following programmes might be of interest:
Sunday 14th June at 10:45 - 'Forever Vespa' documentary (Italian documentary so probably with subtitles unless overdubbed)
Followed by 'Be My Guest' - 1960s movie featuring Steve Marriott
Sunday 14th June at 10pm - 'Smashing Time', 1967 movie featuring Rita Tushingham

I'll try to keep a lookout for any others that look interesting.

Cheers,

Netflix used to be a good place to find foreign and Independent film maybe 5 years ago. it's turned into mostly bad in house produced series (with a few exceptions like "Ozark") and the occasional film worth watching (Roma,The Irishman).
Criterion Channel is much more interesting IMO.

Not a great movie, that's true, but it isn't crap either, it has its moments. And a remarkable soundtrack by Manfred Mann.

I have to admit we have Netflix at home mainly for my mrs, I don't usually pay attention to it. But some series I've watched there veered from interesting to very good, and they've co-produced/hosted some stimulating documentaries, like the one about Lee Morgan.

I know the Criterion Collection as a prestigious movies reissue company, but I'm not familiar with their streaming service; moreover, don't even think my tv's equipped to watch that (it's not state-of-the-art stuff, tbh)

A few more to mention from w/b 15th:

Following the showing of Budgie above, is a repeat showing of SMASHING TIME commencing at 10pm.

Wednesday 17th at 22.05, Terence Stamp appears in a showing of Ken Loach's kitchen sink drama POOR COW (1967).

Saturday 20th at 23.30 THE BOYS (1962) as described by our very own Martin G (where's he been lately?) in 'Mojo Talkin' - Under the Influence of Mod'  -  THE BOYS essays a random night out for a group of young London lads heading "Up West".  The interaction and banter between the four leads..... is reflective of the young Modernists of the era but also of many young men today. They all aspire to better lives than the ones seemingly laid out for them on their tough London housing estate...........  Although perhaps mirroring a society a little bit behind the times, the group are referred to as Teddy Boys or 'Teds', but in actuality their clothing and general style evoke much of the look of early London Modernists.'

Enjoy!!

Martin (who, btw, is "alive and well"  ;D, I'm sure he still lurks here now and then) was spot-on in his depiction, the movie's central characters (the "boys" of the title) dress in fact like quite stylish early modernists (look at those crisp ps folds):

That'll be the day is a better movie, IMO. Stardust is quite shambolic (and the low budget shows), but just the Moonie cameo and the soundtrack (including the songs Dave Edmunds penned, and played, for the Stray Cats) are worth the price of admission alone.

Great wardrobe on that, Paul! The "boys" of the title never get called that but they're sartorial examples of early Modernists in all but name.

Tuesday 16th February 2021 at 8.00am - Dateline Diamonds (1965) - Comedy musical stars The Small Faces, The Chantelles and Kiki Dee. Lester Benson (Kenneth Cope) the manager of top rock band The Small Faces, is hiding a secret.  Apparently, SF appeared in the film as a promotional vehicle for the release of 'I've Got Mine', however the film's release was delayed and the band had received no other publicity for the single, which subsequently failed to chart!!

One of the biggest issues for the lads was that they never made any money or rather were not paid accordingly leading in later years to Ronnie Lane living in a caravan at the bottom of Townsends garden.  .

The Mike d'Abo lineup of MM has been routinely -and lazily- dismissed as a crafty lightweight pop outfit with no serious musical substance behind, but it couldn't be further from the truth: not only the "bland" pop material included some classy Dylan covers, also the B sides of the 45s and the handful of LPs they did (including "Up the Junction") are crammed with adventurous and well-crafted psych tracks as well as their trademark atmospheric blues-jazz tunes.

I actually prefer the later line up of the Manfreds, RAFA. Some great 45s there and interesting album tracks especially from As Is. Underrated.

I think the we have 2 different Manfred's basically . I think 'As Is' is a great album and l aquired it on vinyl back in the day . The original Manfreds are good too and made some superb 6ts pop records  but l think Paul Jones became a bit of a prima donna ( by the time he formed The Blues Band he was single handedly keeping MaxFactor in business) and D'Abo came in at the right time . I liked the off shoots when the D'Abo era finally wound up though I never really got into the Earth Band , even if Manfred did remain an undisputed talent.
Title: Re: Talking Pictures TV
Post by: greenstreet on April 06, 2021, 10:15:11 AM

 ;D

Yep, two different bands but if you look at it carefully the changes were more cosmetic than essential. The replacement of Jones by D'Abo and the other lineup changes that shook the band through '66 showed that the core members were unsure about what direction they should follow. Even for some months they were the soul-jazz band that Manfred envisioned from the beginning as the ideal to aspire (the Henry Lowther, Jack Bruce lineup). At last, a compromise was reached that in essence wasn't that different than what came before: solid pop 45s and mild experimentation in LPs and B-sides.

What made the real difference were the vocalists and the prevalent musical trends: D'Abo sounded poppier, less distinctive than Jones and psychedelia was now the rage. So a jazzy r&b band gave place to a pop-jazz one.

Regarding Manfred Mann's Chapter Three, they were Manfred's answer to the new progressive trend. Their two LPs are among the best of the era, as jazzy, even funk, elements displace the more pompous and symphonic leanings of other bands. Add to that some inspired songwriting by Mike Hugg. The Earth Band followed that path but with diminishing interest (to me).

Bradley Wiggins on Mods. Just been repeated on Sky Arts.
Some great clips of the original Mods.

I saw that last week Mo, followed a day or two afterwards by a documentary/talking heads type programme about and starring Ronnie Wood.  Both worthwhile if you get the opportunity to watch them.
Oh bugger, I missed the Ronnie Wood one. Was that on Sky Arts too?

Yeah it was, on Wednesday or Thursday last week.  The good thing with Sky Arts is that they often repeat programmes, so it might be worth checking the schedule regularly over the coming weeks.  The programme was called Ronnie Wood: Somebody Up There Likes Me, and is dated 2019, so it's not too old.
