Pulp’s Candida Doyle talks about The Beat Is The Law

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Interviewed at the Leeds International Film Festival screening of The Beat Is The Law, Candida Doyle talks about the film, Pulp, Margaret Thatcher’s 80′s and the future of music.

After the screening she did a great Q and A with the film’s director, Eve Wood. As Candida said herself, she doesn’t get much opportunity to talk, its usually the men.

The screening was a great event in such a grand setting of the Leeds Town Hall. To see the film projected onto such a massive screen and hear the sound coming back at you on such a scale was amazing. A truly memorable night for us as filmmakers. Big thanks to the festival and of course Candida.

Here’s a ‘pocket’ review of the screening by the Leeds Student magazine

Monday, November 7th, 2011


你好
We are pleased to announce The Beat Is The Law’s first screening in Asia at the Taipei Golden Horse Film Festival on the 9th and the 14th November 2011

賈維斯卡克說:「即使手錶停了,它一天至少還會正確兩次。」而這個世界終於在一九九五年追上他的腳步,因為The Stone Roses 吉他手John Squire 騎單車摔斷鎖骨、搖滾公雞洛史都華又婉拒邀約,成軍將近二十年才以〈Common People〉初嚐成名滋味的Pulp,意外站上英國Glastonbury 音樂節主舞台,由現場八萬人共同見證了Pulp 與雪菲爾同儕們用十餘年寫下的音樂傳奇。

Below is a scan of Taiwan’s biggest broadsheet daily, The China Times 31.10.2011. On the back page of the newspaper is this piece on The Beat Is The Law and Pulp. Spot the English music references amongst the Mandarin text!
