Tactile Thoughts

Friday 5 December | 7.30pm | Film Unit | £2.50

In this so-bad-it’s-almost-good action flick, martial arts rock band, Dragon Sound, manage to perform the odd song whilst dealing aggressively and bloodily with the seedy underbelly of cocaine-dealing gangsters and motorcycle ninjas out to take over their turf. At least that’s how I remember it. An 80s martial arts cheese fest.

This Up Yours Xmas! offering presents a coming-of-age double bill: kicking off with We Are The Best!, a contemporary Swedish drama about three counterculture grrrls, after a break – with a bar and more – it tops off the evening with Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains, a 1980s US tale of a ranting punkette, featuring a young Ray Winstone and members of the Sex Pistols and The Clash.
