Vini & Bruce on TV again!
- Vini & Bruce both appeared in a C4 documentary called The
Alcohol Years by Carol Morley, a face on the Manchester scene
of the 1980s and member of girl duo ToT.
Most of the programme deals unflinchingly with her numerous
sexual adventures with various Manc musicians and
Hacienda-types. Vini appears in a sympathetic sequence
towards the end, giving the impression that their relationship
was slightly more substantial than many of the others detailed
earlier on. Bruce makes some wise-old-uncle-type comments...
Durutti's Mercy Theme appears at one point (during the Pete
Shelley in Paris episode, slightly confusingly...).
I think this was first shown about a year ago, but I only caught it
on a recent late-night repeat.
If anyone wants a VHS PAL format copy of this, and either or both
of the other two programmes mentioned in my previous post,
ask me nicely and I'll see what I can do...
