UK's cult legend John Otway returns to his old school to give a course on survival in the music industry. In the midst of Britain's '70s punk revolution and after a momentous TV appearance where five and a half million viewers watched him land painfully on his testicles, Otway was high in the charts. Too bad his next HIT was 25 years later. John Otway's career is an educational, yet magical lesson in self-promoting... recruiting his fans for endless manipulative, over-the-top projects which, among others, garnered him status as The Nation's 7th Favorite Lyricist in a BBC poll, secured him a Top Ten HIT for his 50th birthday and a feature movie for his 60th. Failure has its rewards. It's kept Otway in the spotlight for 35 years. Written by
This is the story of John Otway's rise and fall and fall and fail and fall and fail. He dreamed a dream and probably should have stayed in bed.
Is this movie funnier than Spinal Tap? Yes, because it's true. Is this movie more tragic than Macbeth? Yes, because it's true. Is Otway the world's greatest Rock'n'Roll failure? It's harsh but fair. However Otway has a fan base that is dedicated to transforming his failures into success. His fans have moved mountains, trains and chart positions! They have sung, sweated and smiled. This story is as much there's as it is his.
Watch this movie. It will make you smile but more than that, it will go to Otway's head and inspire him to fail some more :-)
