Stephen Duffy’s Bus Pass

Is just one of the Brum-related ephemera to be found in collage on the booklet of the new Lilac Time collection ‘Memory and Desire’.

It’s a proper WMPTE Travelcard with him in New Romantic regalia. Other bits include a photo of Washwood Heath, one of the Perry Barr Poly campus, a Kynoch cycles advert, a Library card… see what else you can spot (click through for a bigger pic):

And the album is beautiful, even if one track does feature Nigel Kennedy. There’s also news of a film, woo hoo!

  • The film has already been shown in London at, I think, London Film Festival. There is also a film, I think still being made but a 20 minute piece/trailer, was shown at the Barbican last year, about Lawrence Felt. We should track them both down, even emailing St Etienne as Bob Sinclair was curating the programme that the Lawrence film was shown in, but to no avail. In fact Jon, we should do a Brum music film festival, and get that map sorted! (I know, I know, all I’m all talk no action – but I really want to do all this stuff!!)

  • The film's won a prize at a couple of festivals, but not heard of a screening in Brum (another reason to bemoan our niche film offering) — DVD out soonish.

    Ahh… the days when you could use a lurid orange curtain as backdrop in photobooth pics!
