  FILMMAKER PLANS MAJOR U.K. SUBS DOCUMENTARY   

INITIAL APPEAL FOR U.K. SUBS FOOTAGE

The Time & Matter website editors are delighted to announce that the newly acclaimed screenplay writer and film director Mike Tweddle (pictured below) of Broken Scar Productions is planning a major new U.K. Subs documentary film over the next few years, with the help of Time & Matter Recordings, and YOU the fantastic U.K. Subs fan-base. Mike Tweddle - click image to enlarge

Mike is 47 and lives in North Yorkshire with his partner and two boys. He got into punk aged 11 and saw the Subs for the first time aged about 13 at a kids' matinee at the infamous Rock Garden in Middlesbrough. Ever since then, Mike says that the driving force of D.I.Y. ethics has led him to write fanzines, travel the world, write a book, write screenplays for other people (The Last Blast) and finally in 2013, he directed his first full length film 'Damaged Goods' (www.damagedgoodsfilm.co.uk).

Mike told T&M that 'Damaged Goods' actually came from a screenplay he'd written a few years earlier. The film has had a great response and has been shown in places as diverse as Durham, Windsor, Keswick and San Diego. See the trailer below:

Initial plans are that the documentary will be released around the same time that the U.K. Subs release their 'Z' album, and the documentary film will be funded partly by a 'Kickstarter' or 'Pledge' campaign.

Mike has asked that in order to start things off, if any Subs fan has any footage (good, bad or ugly); either live, or interviews, or otherwise, then please get in touch with Mike at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Charlie Harper, 17 December 1998 - quoted from an interview in Scanner Fanzine Issue 3


 

"Among the many bands on the bill are some of the veterans of the punk/new wave explosion of the late 1970s including... ...the seemingly indestructible UK Subs. Still fronted by Charlie Harper, who first formed the band as an Elizabethan madrigal quartet sometime in the 1600s, UK Subs were one of the original punk bands from 1976 and are notable not least for the fact of having been through at least 35 drummers in their 35-year history."
