“A lively, deadpan comedy that celebrates the joy, the heartbreak and the absurdity of the rock ‘n’ roll life.” – Ed Kelleher, Film Journal International

“An absolute gem of a movie!” – Clint Morris, Moviehole

 

Twenty years after Strange Fruit’s highly publicized breakup in 1978 at the Wisbech open-air festival, the band-keyboardist Tony, who was working as a condom salesman in Ibiza; bassist Les, now a roofer in the frozen North of England; drummer Beano, leading a reclusive existence in his mother’s garden; ultra-vain lead singer Ray, living beyond his means with his second Swedish wife; and Brian, the fragile lead guitarist who is currently MIA – are persuaded to get back together for a reunion concert, Wisbech 1998. Still Crazy charts their increasingly desperate efforts to recapture the magic, the music, the lost opportunities and the missed performances of their prime.
