Last year we re-issued Jock Scots classic album ‘My Personal Culloden’ on vinyl. Now, our friend Robert Rubbish has made a documentary and he needs your help to get the post-production of the film up and running.
The poet and music-industry catalyst Jock Scot was a secret, outrageous and endlessly charismatic star of post-punk Britain. He toured, drank and drugged it up with The Clash, Shane MacGowan, Ian Dury and Lemmy. He wrote poetry about love, death and Ronnie Wood. This documentary film joins Jock in June 2014 and we have exclusive interviews with Jock and filmed him as his last ever gig in December 2015.
Jock Scot sadly passed away on 13 April 2016 , his wonderful and moving funeral was attended by Peter Blake, Mick Jones, Neneh Cherry, Will Self and members of key cult bands including The Pogues, The Pop Group and the Fire Engines.
The film features exclusive interviews with Shane Macgowan, Peter Doherty, Anna Chancellor, Keith Allen, Salena Godden, Baxter Dury, Humphrey Ocean, Suggs, British Sea Power, John Cooper Clarke, Murray Lachlan Young ,Neneh Cherry and Kosmo Vinyl.
The film’s director, Robert Rubbish, first met Jock one afternoon in the legendary Soho drinking club The Colony Rooms. They immediately hit it off and Robert would see Jock at sporadic intervals in The Colony Rooms until it closed in December 2008. The pair were reunited in November 2012 and Robert embarked on recording Jock’s life story – the story of a remarkable, brilliant, disruptive poet, performer and piss artist. NME utimate cult heroes “He’s this fantastic poet and terrible singer, spewing tragi-comic tales of crushing heartbreak and psychedelic sex and drugs experiments at Butlin’s. There is more fire, spontaneity and mischief in Jock than anyone I’ve ever met… a heroic drunk who’s as bright as a button.”
Robert Rubbish is an artist, filmmaker and Co founder of the art collective Le Gun.
In 2013 he made his first feature film The One Eyed Man In The Kingdom Of The Blind https://vimeo.com/82141304
