A plea from Jez:
I’m making a film about Reggae, Punk and Bhangra in Birmingham around how communities and individuals express themselves through music. I received a small amount of funding for this with a condition I used 75% (roughly 45 mins) of archive material. The completed film will be shown as part of the re-opening of the Midlands Arts Centre from May- Sept which expected to attract 20,000+ visitors. It is a non-commercial film and is part of the Birmingham Popular Music Archive http://birminghammusicarchive.co.uk.
I really need some visuals of the following venues from the 70’s/80’s: Fighting Cocks, Rebeccas, Cedar Club, Hare & Hounds, Santa Rosa/Rialto, Elite cinema Handsworth, Star Club, Red Lion Balsall Heath, International Small Heath, Odean New St,Locarno, Romulus, Jug of Ale,Mermaid
I don’t have money to pay for use but would obviously give you a full credit/thanks. I’m on an incredibly tight deadline now (I was let down on getting some images of the above hence the urgent nature) so it would be hugely appreciated if you can help that you get jpgs to me before Wednesday of this week!
Thanks in advance
