Sea Change announce King Rocker’s first preview, panel talk and The Nightingales live
Special Bagpuss Soundtrack event with Sandra Kerr and John Faulkner
Our friends at Sea Change/The Drift Record Shop have announced a stunning line up for 2019. Following from last year, Fire Records continues it’s creative partnership with the festival to bring you an upfront preview of the King Rocker film (with Stewart Lee and Michael Cumming) and The Nightingales live, plus many more acts to come. Meanwhile, Earth Recordings will be bringing along Sandra Kerr and John Faulkner to celebrate The Music from Bagpuss release.
Sea Change joins with Fire Records/Fire Films to offer the first look at KING ROCKER, a film investigating the mysterious existence of the front man and lyricist of The Nightingales, Robert Lloyd. Comedian and writer STEWART LEE and director MICHAEL CUMMING (Brass Eye, Toast) bring an exclusive first preview of the documentary to Sea Change, with a full panel talk and pounding live show from THE NIGHTINGALES, Britain’s ultimate post-punk survivors. Robert Lloyd’s The Prefects played with The Clash on the White Riot tour in 1977 and The Nightingales recorded more John Peel sessions than any other band.
Following the 2018 Earth Recordings reissue of The Music From Bagpuss Drift declared it their soundtrack release of the year. At last year’s festival, the soundtrack specialists handed Drift a mysterious test pressing and now, less than a year on, Bagpuss will be holding court at Sea Change 2019.
Series creators, aficionados and fans will explore the adored ’70s animated classic and, as part of an exclusive, fully-immersive experience, musicians SANDRA KERR and JOHN FAULKNER – whose beautiful pastoral folk music helped to make the series so special – will perform the beautiful songs live.
