This impressive follow up to EIFF’s 2015 Audience Award winner Big Gold Dream picks up where the previous film left off, and continues its thrilling tour of the pre-Britpop, Scottish music scene. It features bands, such as The Bluebells, The Pastels, The Soup Dragons and an early incarnation of Teenage Fanclub; plenty of rich archive footage; and fascinating interviews with some of the key people of the time, including Edwyn Collins, Bobby Gillespie, Jim Reid, Sean Dickson, Eugene Kelly and Alan McGee; all combine to ensure that this is not one to miss. 

After the 9pm screening on 22 June, anyone with a ticket to the film can see Eugene Kelly (The Vaselines) and Duglas T Stewart (BMX Bandits) perform acoustic sets in the Traverse Theatre from 11.30pm followed by a BMX Bandits DJ set. It's free, but a ticket from the screening is need for access.
