My Best Fiend (15)

Sunday, 27th July at 7.30 at GFT

In the 1950s, when Werner Herzog was 13, he was sharing an apartment with Klaus Kinski. In an unabated, 48 hour fit of rage Kinski destroyed every piece of furniture in sight. From this chaos, a beautiful albeit volatile partnership was born. In this personal documentary, Herzog traces the often violent up and downs of their relationship, revisiting the Munich apartment where they first met and the various locations of their films.

This screening is introduced by Davy Henderson of the Sexual Objects, who previously played in influential post-punk groups, The Fire Engines and The Nectarine No.9.
Was a bit pissed off to find out that the Daniel Johnston gig that I thought was this coming Saturday was actually last night. It was a beezer by all accounts and not sold out. What's going on that a festival taking place next year can hoover up money but something like this doesn't?

No don't answer that, I know...

Mr Spence wishes it to be known that his new combo, The Brutes are in Auld Reekie tomorrow night. Info on the other two bands can be found on the B's myspace.

The Blasters live in Seattle with Mr Bateman back in the drum seat.
