Soft Cell: Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

Post by Mr Onion »

screenshot_48.png
2018 marked the 40th anniversary of Soft Cell, one of the most colourful and charismatic bands in the history of popular music. To celebrate this landmark, singer Marc Almond and musician Dave Ball reunited for an emotional, sold-out, farewell concert at London’s O2 Arena that September.

With unprecedented access to Marc and Dave, this film follows the build-up to that gig and provides an intimate retrospective portrait of one of our greatest bands and most iconic singers. It shows rehearsals and preparations for the O2 show and footage from the actual concert itself, woven in with period archive and music videos.

Saw this
Very insightful, didn’t realise that they were so up to their ears in drugs, Marc yes but Dave mmmm.
Also thought Marc was at deaths door when he was on hootenanny a few years back.
Made some excellent music and of course the fantastic Torch.

I thought the same when I saw him on Jools, looks a lot better now (and his was singing better too, it was a bit cringworthy on Jools)

Great little show, with not enough music for me so I had better get the LP's out :smt023

Funny that my thoughts were exactly the same so consequently the album went straight on the lp12.
About 5 hours later I went to bed!!!!
As a certain Mr Jackson once said, blame it on the boogie.
