ALL TOMORROW'S PARTIES

SYNOPSIS:
In an out-of-season holiday camp on the coast of England, cult music festival All Tomorrow's Parties serves up a wide range of rock, curated by various bands and artists over the years. This post-punk DIY bricolage uses material generated by the fans and musicians themselves, on a multitude of formats including Super8, camcorder and mobile phone material. Founded by Barry Hogan in 1999, All Tomorrow's Parties is an organisation based in London that has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the UK. The first festival was curated by Mogwai and took place in the unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands.

Review by Andrew L. Urban:
Nick Cave at his subversive best, virtuoso editing, irresistible foot tapping and overwhelming energy from start to finish come together to form a musical roller coaster without a safety rail.

You could say it's an 80 minute music video - it certainly uses some of the sensibilities and visual tricks - but in fact All Tomorrow's Parties seem far too short; surely this party could go till dawn. And we want to be there.
Full review will be publsihed on July 3
