James Coburn & The Rum Bastards
The Low Flying Geese have given us our first taste of what we can expect from their upcoming “Rockumentary” James Coburn & The Rum Bastards and all I can say is WOW! This film looks every bit as good as the cast and cameos suggest it would be and then some.
Writer/director Nathan Cunningham, Mr Peeps and their team deserve massive credit for the roll call of Manchester/Northern legends (often an overused word but not on this list!) that they have managed to rope in on this project. Names include:
John Cooper Clarke
and Mike Garry
Its who’s who of superstars.
The film centers around James Coburn & The Rum Bastards, a band who formed in HMP Strangeways and is told through a series of interviews from people in and around the band as well as “fans” and was filmed in Manchester and the surrounding area.
It’s set to be an absolute masterpiece and the release date can’t come soon enough for me and many others but everyone is still working hard and funds are still needed.. Can you help? If so get in touch and help get this project over the finish line sooner rather than later.
Keep your eyes peeled for a more in depth preview with interviews from one or two people involved hopefully coming soon to Emerging North.
