The Scala Review Show 4 – Nightbirds, with Kim Newman and BFI Flipside
First broadcast 9pm, 12th September 2016, on Resonance FM in London.
Roz Kaveney and guests author and critic Kim Newman, plus Will Fowler and Vic Pratt from BFI’s Flipside Bl-ray and DVD label, discuss underground director Andy Milligan’s grotty, erotic film ‘Nightbirds‘ set in East London of that most Sixties of years, 1970.
(NSFW: you can just about hear somone yell “fuck” and a “cock-sucking sonoffabitch” during the Nightbirds trailer, and we play The Married Monk’s ‘Roma Amor’ which includes the word ‘pissing’; but we did take out a “shitty” after broadcast to describe what’s left of 169 Commercial Road).
Our guest, Kim Newman, considers the Scala map.
