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.
