I was thinking, you know Paul Newman's got his salad dressing and that? So why not Frankie Wilde Hummus?
That's a really good idea, Frankie.
People come see the gigs and they say, "That was a great set, Frankie," and I say, "Cheers, mate, want some hummus?"
Yeah, good name for an album.
Frankie Wilde - Hummus.
What? Call my album Hummus? I don't think so.
I've got good ideas, Frankie, you should listen to me.
If I've got my own hummus brand and my album's called Hummus, it's all ...

The movie is very good, very well shot and the director deserves praise for his work. Kaye gives a memorable performance. The story is good, with a strong melodramatic theme, as the film is not so much about Djs than about handicapped hearing impaired people. It is sad and sweet at moments with very moving moments. Some touches of black humor, very British, a bit of swearing and two macho crass jokes don't spoil the overall feeling of despair and total compassion you feel for the human beings portrayed. The music is good not so much the dance music but the score. The picture is superb knowing it was shot on digital. It's a low budget movie which looks like a 10 million dollar film. And a meaningful film. Not to be missed. A true achievement.
