It will always be a joy to say Lower Slaughter are back, and indeed they are, with their second album ‘Some Things Take Work’ now upon us to deliver us from all sorts of evils, and if maybe not actually deliver us, it will at least distract us from the shite around us as we base jump into the riff pit with wild abandon.
This is the film that Carpenter made straight after the (now) phenomenon that was to become Halloween (1978).

IF Jaguar Land Rover was a football club it would be Barcelona/Real Madrid/ Manchester City/Chelsea/Paris Saint Germain all rolled into one.OK, maybe I exaggerate a bit, but it would at least be a shoo-in for the Champions League. And one of the ‘players’ that has helped make the company such a runaway success is the Jaguar XF.
The brainchild of Belle and Sebastian singer/songwriter Stuart Murdoch, kickstarter-funded God Help the Girl is likely to be the most adorkable (apologies) indie film of the summer.
