“British glam rock superstars Slade made their collective acting debut in this drama about a pop group’s struggles with success. In the late 1960s, Barry, Paul and Charlie are musicians who are barely making a living playing pub dates, weddings, and socials backing up egocentric vocalist Jack Daniels.”
Noddy Holder talks about the film on YouTube. We will try to get an interview about what it was like filming in Sheffield.
