Star-Club TV announce their first film:
The Quarrymen - The Band that started The Beatles
In conjunction with Horst Fascher, founder of Hamburg's celebrated Star-Club, Garrelt Danker Medienproduktion, the German media company, brings music legends of the 50s and 60s back into the limelight - with lots of humour and affection.
“The Quarrymen - The Band that started The Beatles” (65 min) - the first film of the Horst Fascher Star-Club TV series, celebrated its television premiere on June 14, 2009. What better subject for this first episode than the fascinating story of the early days of the most famous music group of all time?
Although The Star-Club was born in Hamburg in 1962 the echoes of its success continue to reverberate worldwide throughout today’s rock and pop music. Under the guidance of Horst Fascher himself, Star-Club TV is the legitimate successor of the original Star-Club and still boasts the original logo.
Featured in the film are interviews with Colin Hanton, Len Garry and Rod Davis, three original members of the “Pre-Beatles” - John Lennon’s 1950s group “The Quarrymen“ to which Paul McCartney and George Harrison both belonged.
The film also includes newly discovered photos, which have lain hidden since July 1957, of the “Day John Met Paul” at the St Peter’s Church Fete in Woolton, Liverpool, together with live footage of a modern-day concert by the remaining Quarrymen and the sound of their first new single for over 50 years - “Never stop Rockin’ ‘n’ Rollin’”.
The dvd is available in the UK from Scorpion Publications via this website, price £18.00 including UK postage. The DVD is only available in PAL format.
