Storyline

Light the Rock n' Roll spark with a Flame in the guise of Dave, Noddy, Jim and Don and their showcase of the rise and demise of rock band Flame. Set in the hardships of North England's seventies working class society and music scene. This build-up from rags to riches is a parody of realism and grit, with double-dealings and harsh unforgiving dog eat dog mentalities, and the golden rule; if you play with matches then you're going to get burnt, in the flames of the music industry.

Trivia

"The Tower of Power" Radio City was a genuine pirate station. Sited on the former Thames Estuary Maunsell army fort Shivering Sands (one of three WWII anti-aircraft defense installations built in 1943) ten miles out to sea from Whitstable, it broadcast between 1964 and 1967, transmitting on 299 metres (approx 1000 khz). By the time the film was shot, the transmitting antenna had been removed. Footage of a genuine boarding attempt on 20th June 1966 can be seen on a TV news report. See more »

Brilliant and Gritty
18 October 2004 | by (Grimsby, N E Lincolnshire) – See all my reviews

What a brilliant film! This film is a must to watch, not only if you are a Slade fan, but if you like to take a sneak-peek into the seedy and gritty world of pop/rock 'n' roll. The hard cutting realism of the life of a working band rising to short fame during the 70's. The film encapsulates the lives of the band and individual band members that come from ordinary every day life, working through working mens clubs to concerts and star status. you get a shear sense of being there and what it means to work in those circles, (It's not all, 'Glitter 'n' Glam). It's a cut throat world between band and managers, eat or be eaten. There are some great songs in the film to, which everyone from that era will remember. It's not surreal, the film holds up well along with 'That'll be the day' and 'Stardust' and compliments them. Buy it you will not be disappointed. Well done Nod, Jim, Dave & Don, lets have a revival or a sequel eh! Allan.
