Next month sees the release of Lost In France – a new documentary following the rise of the Glaswegian music scene during the 1990s.
In the late 1990s, a collection of musicians from Chemikal Underground Records – among them, Franz Ferdinand, Mogwai, The Delgados and Arab Strap – hired a bus and headed off on a road trip to a town in rural France to play a one-off gig. Now they are headed back to relive the experience.
Featuring a mix of live performances and interviews, the film reunites key personnel in an intimate exploration of friendship, memory and making music.
Lost in France screens as a nationwide cinema event on February 21 as part of Glasgow Film Festival followed by an exclusive performance broadcast live via satellite from the Glasgow O2 ABC, featuring a supergroup including Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand), Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), RM Hubbert plus The Delgados’ Emma Pollock, Stewart Henderson and Paul Savage.
