'The Beat Is The Law - Fanfare For The Common People documentary:
Glastonbury Festival 1995. The Stone Roses pull out of their headline set after a mountain bike accident and Rod Stewart is unavailable. Last minute replacements, Pulp, take to the stage to face 80,000 people. They deliver a set 'regarded as one of the best in the festival's history' climaxing with the era-defining song, Common People, and in the process catapult themselves to the forefront of the Britpop movement - an achievement that 10 years earlier seemed like an impossible dream.
Made with the full co-operation of the band, 'The Beat Is The Law - Fanfare For The Common People' brings together original interviews, performances, promos, newly unearthed live footage and home videos to tell the story of Pulp and their contemporaries' journey from the darkest industrial depths of the Steel City to the pinnacle of pop via the consciousness-raising techno/house of Warp Records.
Featuring original interviews with Pulp's Jarvis Cocker, Russell Senior, Candida Doyle and Nick Banks plus Richard Hawley (Longpigs), Mark Brydon (Chakk/FON/Moloko), Rob Gordon (FON/WARP), Adi Newton (ClockDVA) and many more, 'Fanfare for the Common People' is a deep-fried feature documentary from the creators of the acclaimed 'Made in Sheffield'.
