Heavy Load the Movie is being screened on BBC4 tonight at 10pm. The movie features footage of the famous Stay Up Late launch night at Brighton’s Komedia venue and also extensive footage of the band working their way from local pub gigs through to a slot at a mainstream summer music festival. The movie also deals with the reality of life within a band and the struggles that plague every band!

If you see the film then come back and let us know what you thought of it – we’d love to hear!!

    Saw the movie accidentally mondayevening while I was zapping, and was completley swept away!! What fun do you have and what a mission. It gave me so much energy. Keep up the good work, and stay up late!!

    Hi guys,

    Wow! I’ll be honest I’d heard of you until today, but been browsing your site and seen your gigs and they’re fab! You much come to Worcestershire. Like some of the other guys here I am a support worker too and the arguments I’ve had over choice and the distinct lack of it, well, I could go on for hours! I’d give anything to support in this way – damn those contraints of eejits who think they know what supported living is, but actually don’t! I’ll keep watching and hope to see you sometime in the future. Claire X

    Hi. Just want to say the same as eveeryone really. Great show, great people, great music, great ‘crusade’. I will keep an eye out for any gigs ‘up north’ that I can get to.

    I work in supported learning @ West London College + have a disabled son (who is heavily involved in disabled football as are we, now) – the programme on BBC 4 was BRILLIANT and an inspiration to everyone – we will be showing it to our students, when we can get the equipment to work! Music and football are great levellers, and reminded me of the football tournaments we take our players on in Europe. I wish Heavy Load all the very best and will support the Stay Up campaign wholeheartedly – I hadn’t heard about it, which surprised me, as I am so involved with disability – again, Good Luck!
