Following some brilliant feedback since the screening of the film at the Leeds International Film festival, we are now extending the documentary to a full-length piece. Since then, I have been meeting Billy to talk about life with its peeks and troughs and we’re gathering some brilliant new footage.

This includes new footage of Billy’s time spent in Hilly Field’s Bowls Club during the Christmas snow storm in London, more archive footage from his days as Trimmer & Jenkins and the Burlesque period with some very wacky musical experiments in Belgium. Also we are about to film (tomorrow) a recording session with some of his closer collaborators (Dillan Bates and Mike Pickering) in a studio in Bromley, together with the recording of a BBC radio show with some top celebrities, including comedienne Jo Brand.

Anyway, watch this space! I’m feeling kinda good about it, as I’ve already edited a very good new chunk. Here’s a link to the trailer.
