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.

In the cut throat world of the music business you're either a success or dead.
Did You Know?
"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
