The Record Club teamed up with the Shipley Film Society to present an evening of film and music.
The film was the British Independent Film Awards (BIFA) winner of the 2009 award for the Best British Independent Film. Duncan Jones was also awarded the BIFA Douglas Hickox Award. The film was also nominated for two BAFTAs at the 2010 awards. It won the award for “Outstanding Debut by a British writer, director or producer”.
Afterwards we played David Bowie’s Hunky Dory in full, on vinyl. It features the track “Kooks” apparently written for the birth of Duncan (also known as Zowie). We’ll also managed to find a PWEI’s single and a bunch of moon, space, stars related tunes.
Good film, good music, good company. Not bad for a Sunday in January.
The Kirkgate Centre
The perfect follow up to a sci-fi film directed by his son.
This is Bowie’s 4th album, and the track ‘Kooks’ is dedicated to his young son, known to the world asZowie Bowie but legally named Duncan Zowie Haywood Jones, director of Moon.
Hopefully we’ll have some 1971 vinyl for you. Otherwise it will be re-issue version.
