This exclusive hardback book contains ‘The Curse Of the Chills’ documentary on DVD, as well as the Martin Phillipps – Live At The Moth Club, London 2015.
‘The Curse Of The Chills’ is a major new feature documentary that features never-before-seen live footage, interviews and archive. With exclusive access to the Phillipps family home video archive, the film provides an intimate portrait of the man behind the Chills. Exploring the source of his creativity and his songwriting aesthetic, the film also follows Martin on his journey from scenester musician to international star, then follows him on the downward spiral, interest in the band waned and depression and addiction set in. It’s an age old rock and roll story where Martin is unflinchingly honest about his heroin addiction and struggles with Hepatitis. Happily, there is a final act to the story, and the film is ultimately one of redemption and vindication of living a life that stays true to your beliefs – whatever the cost.
“After three decades of near-misses and dark alleys, Phillipps has finally embraced his role as king of the underdogs.” Pitchforkt
