      Previous discussion, said I would forward video when I located it in the various boxes of crap we carry from house to house. Anyone heard from DCS since MWM was ressuscitated?

        Ah, sorry... I didn't actually twig that you meant you'd send it to me when you found it! That's very kind of you.

        Er... in general, I'm not online as often as I used to be. Sorry for the tardy reply! And thanks to Dead-Air for pointing this thread out to me.

        Edit: I was going to try a Private Message, but that doesn't work, so I'll try the e-mail option. Fun!

        Double Edit: That doesn't work either! Jinkies!

        Triple Edit: But your website has an e-mail option, so communication will flow...

          Just in case anyone's curious, Wikipedia says:

          Jubilee is a 1977 cult film directed by Derek Jarman and starring Jenny Runacre, Nell Campbell (Little Nell), Toyah Willcox, Adam Ant, Jordan (the Malcolm McLaren protege), Ian Charleson, Hermine Demoriane and Wayne County.
          In the film Queen Elizabeth I is transported forward in time by John Dee through the spirit guide Ariel to the shattered Britain ruled by Elizabeth II. The 1970s queen is dead, killed in an arbitrary mugging, and the historical queen moves through the social and physical decay of the city observing the activities of a group of sporadic nihilists called Amyl Nitrate, Bod, Chaos, Crabs, Mad, et. al.
          The film is clearly Jarman's but is heavily influenced by the 1970s punk aesthetic in its style and presentation. Shot in grainy colour the film is largely plotless, episodic, untidy, confrontational, often incoherent and noisily anti-establishment and anti-royalty -- Buckingham Palace is a recording studio run by a man named Borgia Ginz.
          The film features performances by Wayne County and Adam and the Ants among others as well as cameo appearances by The Slits and Siouxsie and the Banshees. It was scored by Brian Eno. Punk fans wanted to see the bands, but the music was largely left on the cutting room floor.

            Er... Zakt? I e-mailed the address on the website, asking how much you'd want for P&P, and got a very polite reply regarding t-shirt prices. I'm guessing that wasn't you. Ah well...

              Zakt needs to go into their User CP and set the Options to "Receive Email".

              That's User CP > Edit Options > Messaging & Notification > Receive Email > check option next to 'Receive Email from Other Members'

              Once that's done the Dee should be able to send that email.

              PS. Shouldn't this thread be in the Movies forum, btw?

                I "opted-out" of the e-mail feature as well, so I can't judge!

                I did wonder, but my argument would be that (as far as I remember) it doesn't really work as a film anyway, and is chiefly of interest because of the musical stars who crop up in it... and the music on the soundtrack... and the way it reflects, as Wikipedia suggests, the "punk aesthetic". I'd say it was of more interest to music fans than film fans, but then I'm not a moderator!

                    Well, as I said in the original thread, it was one of many videos my older sister would rent and traumatise me with (ho ho). I was much too young to be able to get my head around it.

                    To get things on a more musical track, the soundtrack album runs as follows:

                    1. Deutscher Girls - Adam & The Ants
                    2. Paranoia Paradise - Wayne County & The Electric Chairs
                    3. Right To Work - Chelsea
                    4. Nine To Five - Maneaters
                    5. Plastic Surgery - Adam & The Ants
                    6. Rule Brittania - Suzi Pinns
                    7. Jerusalem - Suzi Pinns
                    8. Wargasm In Pornotopia - Amilcar
                    9. Slow Water - Brian Eno
                    10. Dover Beach - Brian Eno

                    Sadly "Nine to five" isn't a cover of the classic made famous by Dolly Parton... and "Wargasm in Pornotopia" doesn't really live up to its name, but the Adam & the Ants songs are great, and so are Suzi Pinns's electronic-operatic versions of "our" national anthems.

                    I've always had a soft spot for stuff related to the Queen's Silver Jubilee, because that's the day I was born. How very egotistical... but when your birth is hailed by street parties and a mood of national euphoria, I guess you'd tend to get a bit big-headed!

                      I'd have to disagree. It's a brilliant film by one of the best British directors ever.

                        Aargh

                        Sorry, I had a severe virus attack complicated by failure of the fan on my PC.

                        According to what I can see my email address is ok, but I need to go trhough a few hundred back-mails now.

                        Since posting, I got the film on DVD - if your still interested, DCS, try the email on the ZakT Soundclick site, which comnes to me. Our bass player is now thoroughly confused. If you want a t-short, though, he's the man!
