Went to a free festival ("Obstwiesenfestival") on Friday, to finally see "Die Nerven" again (not to be confused with "The Nerves", who I should go see again too at some point)!
They were awesome; the sheer energy they radiate, the noise from the guitar, the drums driving 'em forward, melodic basslines and vocals which were probably inspired by anger (is an energy)...  8)
Best live band outta Germany currently!  :D

Latest newsletter from Uncle Hugh:


Hugh’s website about cinema and the people who make movies happen, MrDemilleFM, has changed from a streaming platform, to being available as podcasts, via your chosen podcast provider. The first Podcasts have now gone live so please visit to find out more.

“Two years ago, MrDemilleFM became a reality – a website streaming shows about cinema and the people who make it happen.

Now, on Cecil B. Demille’s birthday, I am delighted to announce that after a lot of work it has become a podcast. Why is this? Simply because of public demand.

You’ll now be able to enjoy the shows whilst on the move and doing other things

Every month there’ll be three shows available as podcasts, either two new ones and one archive, or one new one and two archive.

About 50% of the archive has been taken down in preparation for their transformation into podcasts, and once they’ve all been made available, the other 50% will be taken down and transformed.

It’s a very exciting moment and I do hope you’ll enjoy moving into the future with us.”
Hugh Cornwell, August 2019

To be informed when new podcasts are added, follow @MrDeMilleFM on twitter or subscribe on the website of your favourite platform. The August Podcasts are:

Episode 1- Brian De Palma – The prolific career of Brian De Palma, who has been labelled a Hitchcock copyist, but deserves recognition. Still going after all these years.
Episode 2- Sir David Puttnam Interview – Arguably, the most successful British movie producer talks of his lifelong love of cinema, his illustrious career and his inspirations.
Episode 3- Laurence Harvey – Cold, good looking & louche: this is the Laurence Harvey story, an actor whose rise coincided with the new British cinema of the 60’s.

Early signs of interest from several TUTS of attending next year's German boat trip...

Any chance of turning this into an (un)official "Earthbound", or more accurately "Waterbound", event?

TUTS ahoy!?

World Chat / Re: The Ramones
« Last post by Uli on August 11, 2019, 09:02:40 AM »

n the late 1970s, Roger Corman was looking to produce a high school-themed movie. Knowing that one of his young directing proteges had a bent for music, the head of New World Pictures had an idea. As Allan Arkush remembers Corman telling him: “I’ve been thinking, since ‘Grease’ and ‘Saturday Night Fever’ are hits, why don’t you put music in it and we’ll call it ‘Disco High’?”

Fortunately, as “Rock ‘n’ Roll High School” took shape, cooler heads prevailed … and nothing could be cooler than the Ramones, then, in 1979, or now, even after most of the band members have passed on. It was 40 years ago this week that the film had its New York City opening, which was part of a very, very staggered release pattern for a low-budget project that came to stand in the upper ranks of almost everyone’s list of essential music movies.

Prior to its release, you may have never heard of the Ramones outside of New York City or Los Angeles, but that all changed by the late summer of 1979. What had started out as a teenage fantasy of Arkush’s only a decade earlier would go on to encapsulate an entire generation’s rebellious spirit by introducing punk-rock music to suburban America and a new, counterculture female character in Riff Randell, played by P.J. Soles. By the end of the film, a concert had let out and a school was gleefully blown up.
