Scottish writer and former vocalist for the punk band the Skids, Richard Jobson makes his directorial debut with 16 Years of Alcohol, the stylized psychological drama based on his own semi-autobiographical novel. Through voice-over narration and various flashback methods, troubled young man Frankie Mac recalls his childhood (played by Iain De Caestaecker as a boy) growing up in working-class Edinburgh. In the '50s, his father was a hard-drinking good-timer and his long-suffering mother eventually gave up on the family. As a teenager in the '70s, the violent Frankie falls in with a street gang and tries to clean up to impress record store clerk Helen. After some fights with his old street thug enemy Miller, Frankie makes an another attempt to stop drinking at an AA meeting, where he meets Mary.
Whatever Happened to Jugula? is an album by English folk / rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Roy Harper. It was first released in 1985. Jimmy Page, the guitarist for Led Zeppelin, paired up with Harper to create this amazing piece of work.
Opening with the Head Hunters version of "Watermelon Man" and closing with the electro-embracing crossover hit, "Rockit," Mr. Funk is a semi-random skip across Hancock's Columbia recordings, and it technically spans 1973-1983 (at least going by release dates), rather than the 1972-1988 range printed on its cover.
