Of Time And The City

We don't really do high kultchur over the kitchen table, I leave that to people who know about such things such as Adam at Pretending Life Is Like A Song and Mr H, you know where. But I was reading this really good article in An Antidote To Indifference, a publication by the lovely people behind Caught By The River and decided to delve deeper into some of the music mentioned.

Anyway the article written by Roy Boulter, the former drummer of The Farm was about the Terence Davies feature film Of Time And The City a documentary about Liverpool.

By all accounts the most moving section is the one below, it certainly stopped me in my tracks and made me concentrate. A lovely piece of music even although I can't understand a word of it. It really seems to fit perfectly with the images. I played it four or five times on the bounce.

You can purchase An Antidote To Indifference and lots of other interesting things here.

I have yet to see this - I know it was Dr K's film of the year when it came out and I've heard other people who should be listened to say very good things about it too. I think the last three films I saw at the cinema were The Muppet Movie, How To Train Your Dragon and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (all of which I highly recommend, to be honest).
