‘MOUNTAIN PICNIC BLUES’
THE MAKING OF ‘TELLIN’ STORIES’
WITH Q & A FROM BAND MEMBERS AND DIRECTORS
THE ICA, LONDON SW1
The Charlatans and Start Productions will host a special premiere screening of ‘Mountain Picnic Blues’ featuring a Q and A session with members of the band and the film directors at the ICA in London on Monday the 29th of April 2013.
The screening is to coincide with the DVD release of ‘Mountain Picnic Blues’ on May 13th 2013. The film is a documentary of The Charlatans’ 1997 LP ‘Tellin' Stories’ from its creation in 1997 to the 15th anniversary of the album this year.
Featuring the hit singles 'One To Another' and 'North Country Boy', the LP was a number one hit and a creative high point for the band. The record's creation however was overshadowed by the tragic death ofkeyboard player Rob Collins. The documentary features interviews with all band members and tells the story of the circumstances surrounding the album’s recording and completion in the aftermath of Rob's death and also how they then handled their support slot shortly afterwards with Oasis at Knebworth in front of 210,000 people.
