Despite the fact that I couldn't quite take Steve Coogan seriously , which actually works sometimes, 24 Hours Party People, does deliver a great testament to a critical period of rock and roll history.
Located in space and time at the outset, the film grafts on its credentials by starting with a sex Pistols gig in Manchester. Moves in fast and furious pace into the 1990's and lunacy that surrounded the posthumous and the ludicrous antics of Manchester rawk and roll. Which was of course the UK Acid House scene and the 'Madchester' phenomenon. here the rock star is well and truly dead and the DJ is the star. Well in fact, the club promoter. Perhaps even the music. Well worth checking out, muso heaven.
