About A Badly Drawn Boy: The Story of The Hour of Bewilderbeast

Doc'n Roll

An in-depth feature film all about the boy himself, Damon Gough, and the legacy of his Mercury Prize winning album The Hour of Bewilderbeast, 19 years after its original release in 2000.

Damon talks about his musical upbringing, the mix tape cassettes his mother made him, the first record he bought and the first concert he attended. The story continues with Damon meeting his future creative collaborator and business partner Andy Votel and how together they founded the Twisted Nerve record label in Manchester in the late 1990s.

DCA is excited to welcome director Craig McNeil to present his film and take questions from the audience after the screening. The Q&A will be hosted by journalist and broadcaster Jim Gellatly.

Lights, camera, music! We’re thrilled to be screening two films from Doc'n Roll Scotland, the Music Documentary Film Festival entertaining music lovers and documentary aficionados alike.
