Superb tale & music that will take you back there...
21 October 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fantastic... Haven't smiled from beginning to an end of a movie like that in years... This is actually my old man's era and mine followed over a decade later with the warehouse parties and our version of all nighters I suppose. But he went to those clubs back including Twisted Wheel and Wigan Casino... You have to see the attention to detail and the amazing soundtrack captures you. I can't wait to watch it together with Pop's. I went to the premiere and onto the 100 Club for the after party and then (believe it or not) dusted off my dancing shoes and no doubt made a fool of myself... But loved every minute of it no matter how daft I may have looked ha ha
