They haven't been making it 8 years?! Wolverhampton was the first I'd heard of it, anyway. Buuuut if they're adding stuff from the U.S they're never gonna finish! They'll do a bit of studio filming, follow them around on the next tour... I'm convinced Wibbly Wobby Productions isn't actually a filming company, just a stalker
Yeah it's been in the works since about 2002 believe it or not. I first heard about it 2004 after seeing a 20 minute trailer, made in 2003. Jesus, I feel old now.
Cool clip though, made me smile

The earliest UK footage I think would be from 2002 as I remember Elizabeth from the birmingham gig on the greatest hits tour, but then it was just talking to fans etc. There might be earlier talking to fans stuff outside of at gigs etc though. But the band didn't get involved (well to the extent of being interviewed and their being concert footage as obviously they aren't involved in terms of any editorial/directional decisions) until 2005.

The timing issue is a hard one though as obviously some of that footage is very dated now, though that said on seeing the work in progress screenings that wasn't one of my complaints at all more that the end felt underdeveloped which I'm guessing is what they've been remedying. Also you have to remember to a significant extent its a self funded labour of love, so the people making it need to go do other work so they can afford to make it - which I think sometimes people lose track of.

I dunno, I don't think I was ever that excited about it- mostly due to years now of having trying to dodge camera crews at gigs (especially the first 4 PPF dates) but it will be interesting to see (with the footage they've got it could go either way really).

That clip is odd though as it made me question what I think about at manics gigs, and I think I might actually be in the James camp. Which is odd as usually I spend my whole time thinking about a million and one things scatterbrained at once, maybe thats why I like seeing them - its like a break from being me.

That's basically right, Amanda. I started interviewing fans at the end of October 2002, just prior to the start of the European portion of the Forever Delayed tour. Major shoots with the band took place in April 2005, September/October 2005, October/November 2006, and April/May 2007. The shooting we did during the US tour was for extras and for filling out the ending, as we were unable to shoot during the recording of Journal For Plague Lovers.

There is an explanation of the process by which the band became involved in the film, and of why production of the film has taken so long, in the interview we did for the R*E*P*E*A*T Fanzine this past September. It can be found here: R*E*P*E*A*T Fanzine.

I almost wish the footage of me from December 2002 had survived, just to see what I was like that long ago!

shocking to hear what Nicky said about ahving trouble concentrating, he always looks so present and enjoying himself. James is just channelling the MSP spirit!

Have you also still got that footage from Boston with Nicky and the sign? It was a great angle on the crowd shoutypointying.

That's awesome, thanks! I loved Boston! I'll have to watch it when I get home, my work computer hates videos.

Posh smiley.

They should've ask what James thinks upon somebody shouting for Sleepflower?
"F**king C**t"

And Nicky upon hearing "Libraries gave us power"?
"Ahhh, my politics degree!"

I really kind of hope I spot myself in this film when it's eventually done. I'll be unrecognisable to the way I look now, but the Manics have been such a huge part of my life that it would be ace to feature in something that's all about them and their fans.
