Have an Awayday

Kevin Sampson's novel Awaydays has been made into a film. Link to the site is here. It sounds brilliant and an expedition is planned. According to Sampson the funding for the film was a massive effort. Adidas stumped up a bit for some product placement (check out the shiny trainers), this piece here explains. And this trailer, here.

I liked the book and it should make a much better film than the hoolie porn of Green Street and the Football Factory. Soundtrack from 1979 includes Ultravox, Joy Division and The Cure.

Another local bloke is looking forward to it, preview here. Look it up under Journal.

More links to more trainer and tracky top nonsense etc, here, here and here.

I've been looking forward to this film for what seems like an age and typically, it won't be shown in Lancaster. Never mind, we'll have a night in Preston instead.

Why don't you come with us?

We're going on Friday the 29th to the Printworks in Manchester. A good bunch of lads.
