Exile on Denmark Street

Tales From Tin Pan Alley (dir. Henry Scott-Irvine) is the first full-length documentary to tell the story of Britain’s own ‘Tin Pan Alley’ on London’s Denmark Street.  Home to songwriters, music venues, recording spaces and musical instrument shops since 1906 (as well as London’s pre-war ‘Little Tokyo’), the film explores the capital’s declining music heritage amid on-going development of the surrounding area.  Interviewees include Dan Cruikshank, Will Self, Herbie Flowers, Kenney Jones, Glen Matlock and Eddie Piller (not to mention input from 3:AM contributors Andrew Stevens and John Rogers).

The next London screening takes place on Friday July 5th from 7.30pm at SouthWestFest (Lillington Gardens Community Hall & Bar, London SW1V).  More details can be found on the SouthWestFest website.
