DVD Lawn Bowls Documentary

Music by Billy Jenkins


A delightful, gently crafted 45 minute film, made by Dave Eyre and Peter Cordwell celebrating the centenary of Francis Drake Bowls Club, Hilly Fields, Brockley, whilst also inviting other people to play the 'gracious game'.

Music in the film is by jazz/blues icon Billy Jenkins, who is also captain of Francis Drake BC.


Three Jenkins compositions are featured:

The title track 'Ain't Going Yet' is taken from the Blues Collective CD 'LIFE' (VOTP 2002) and the first half of the match itself is accompanid by 'Benidorm Motorway Services' from 'Scratches of Spain' (reissued by Babel 1994 but currently out of print) - featuring Bollywood Brass Band trombonist Dave Jago and keyboard gymnast Django Bates.

The second half of the match is edited to 'The Perfect Lawn' from 'Suburbia' (Babel 1999), which features Polar Bear lynchpin Mark Lockheart on tenor saxophone, Dave Ramm on keyboards and drummer Roy Dodds.

The film has been made by Plumstead film-maker Dave Eyre and local journalist Peter Cordwell, editor of Greenwich Council's newspaper, Greenwich Time.


The DVD also features the three music tracks set to bowls images as stand alone extras. All proceeds go to the bowls club.


BEFORE ORDERING FROM OUTSIDE THE U.K., CHECK THAT YOUR
MACHINE CAN READ ZERO REGION PAL DISCS!

 

Reviews

 

01/09/0006 Mike Flynn / Jazzwise

'Jenkins' shambling blues style is a perfect soundtrack for this utterly unpretentious pastime and turns the almost slow-motion scenes of the bowling match into an unlikely pop video. Lovely, gently eccentric and utterly charming'

 

27/07/0006 Helena Arg├╝elles /Essential Time Out

'I absolutely loved it. Incredibly well done and put together.Really should be sold to the BBC as an quintessentially English Docu-drama.'

 

20/07/0006 Simon Thackray / The Shed

'Wonderful! Loved it!'
