Oil City Confidential – Out soon

Posted on: Monday, Oct 26, 2009

Julien Temple’s film noir feature documentary tells the story of Dr Feelgood – four men in cheap suits who crashed out of Canvey Island in the early ’70s and sandpapered the face of rock ‘n’ roll, leaving all that came before a burnt-out ruin – four estuarine John-the-Baptists to Johnny Rotten’s anti-christ.

Having taken London by storm, they sped through Europe and conquered the UK with No 1 chart success, before imploding just as punk was born and America beckoned with open arms.

Members of The Clash, Blondie and The Sex Pistols join the surviving members of Dr Feelgood and collaborators Jools Holland and Alison Moyet to tell the story of Canvey, 70’s England and the greatest local band in the world.
