epic45: Vanishing Britain

Staffordshire’s purveyors of pastoral pop return for a rare live outing, 10 years after the release of their landmark LP ‘May Your Heart Be The Map.’ To set the scene they’ve pieced together a selection of films which reflects their preoccupation with landscape and community.

From Dawley to Telford: Building a Community (MACE, 2013)
ATV footage of Telford from the 60s and 70s, building a picture of the impact which the new town’s arrival had on local people. Includes a cameo from master-planner John Madin.

H Is For House (Peter Greenaway, 1973)
Wry snapshot of a country idyll, narrated by Colin Cantlie.

One Pair Of Eyes: All Systems Go (Lawrence Moore, 1972)
Writer Alan Garner gives a tour of his stomping ground in north Cheshire, the inspiration and setting for much of his work.

An epic45 performance will follow the screening, using visuals from an unfinished post-apocalyptic 16mm short shot by the group.
