About

Everyone remembers ‘Apocalypse Now’, but only movie aficionados will recall the original British film "Apo-Calypso Now" (1959), starring Harry Belafonte, Joan Rutherford, Tommy Steel, Hattie Jacques and Marlon Brando. Steel is unforgettable as the brooding and laconic SAS officer who finds himself behind enemy lines with only a parachute and a small box of percussion instruments. What possible relevance could this have for pre-Brexit Britain in 2017? Well, in today’s spoilt and cynical world we need that cheery, pre-war spirit. If you can’t stand May, or can't stand up to Trump, do a minute’s defiant stand-up. Bring a bad poem, long-forgotten joke or ditty. Keep Calm and Wear Camouflage in case you’re recognized (e.g. shifty make-up, appalling clothing). The World is fucked and we’re all going to die. But why let it get you down? Get down and boogie.
