Festival of Festivals, Montjuïc de Nit, Barcelona, 14.07.2012

July 10th, 2012

We are excited to announce our first open air screening of The Beat Is The Law on a mountain in Barcelona on 14th July at the Montjuïc de Nit festival (Festival of Festivals).
The screening starts at 22.00 but that’s not all folks…

Just before the screening at 21.00, the fabulous John Stuart, who used to be the singer in Vendino Pact, Chakk and The Lovebirds (together with Richard Hawley), will be making a DJ appearance and spinning some classic Sheffield tunes to get you in that ‘Sheff vibe’.

Here’s a link to the details

 

Below is a photo of Chakk (John Stuart is the one with the dogs) and some Spanish about John Stuart and the Beat Is The Law:

Membre del grup musical Chakk
John Stuart va arribar a Sheffield l’any 1978 per estudiar política però també per fer una banda en la que va ser la ciutat musical més emocionant del Regne Unit. Cabaret Voltaire, Clock DVA, The Human League i molts més artistes, mesclaven electrònica alemana, jazz, garatge rock i sons anglesos del Nord Industrial per fer sons bonics innovadors i avançats a la seva època.  A través de la seva primera banda Venedino Pact, com a membre de l’influent grup industrial de funk Chakk i com a un dels primers col·laboradors als principis de Richard Hawley; John Stuart va experimentar durant gairebé 15 anys en el cor de l’huracà de l’escena musical de Sheffield que veureu a “The Beat is the Law”.
A través de su primera Banda Vendino Pact, como miembro de los influyentes Chakk y como colaborador de Richard Hawley, John Stuart experimentó durante 15 años en el ojo del huracán que fue Sheffield (y que se refleja en The Beat is The Law). Una selección musical alrededor de Sheffield abrirá nuestro Montjuïc de Nit.


El ritmo es la ley: Una fanfarria para la gente común

Tot allò que volíem saber sobre Pulp, la banda de Jarvis Cocker, el grup de pop-rock independent més gran de les últimes dècades, es troba en aquest documental. Entrevistes originals, actuacions, promocions, materials acabats de desenterrar i vídeos domèstics són el material que ens ofereix per narrar la seva història. Un relat que comença a les profunditats industrials de Sheffield, a través dels turbulents anys vuitanta de Margaret Thatcher, i acaba dalt de l’escenari, a tocar de la glòria. Una història de pel·lícula que ens demostra que Pulp han estat molt més que gent normal.
