Youth – Sketch, Drugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll – DVD/CD
Previously unreleased original music by Youth and tracks from Killing Joke in Dub keep the film driving through a steady stream of anecdotes, smoke hazed rooms and studio sessions.
Filmmakers Paul Elliott and Sean Lamberth spent 18 months with full access to recording sessions, travelling with Youth in his VW camper van and talking to him while he painted and sketched. His story is told in his own words from his London home and studio, with contributions from some of music’s biggest names including Paul McCartney, David Gilmour, Boy George, Jaz Coleman, Guy Pratt, Alan McGee, Danny McNamara, Reverend & The Makers, Lois & The Love, Alex Orb Paterson, Go Back To The Zoo, Karen Ruimy and more….
The DVD extras include 30 minutes of extra interviews with Youth, Middle Class Riot poetry and a photo gallery. The package also includes a DJ mix CD of Youth’s previously unreleased music, 4 x Postcards and a Youth logo sticker.
