In 2014, TheZineUK called ‘Svengali’ “a cult movie before its even released”. Graced by our own Heather Minx‘s informal and insightful interview, our situationism weaves future truths. The film’s reputation has swelled from rock and rollcult to public consciousness. It’s now on Netflix (along with a movie about another of our own, Bruno Wizard). Fast forward to 2018…
Heather Minx (with Playhard Gigs/Gigslutz) had a brilliant chat with the writer, and star of the film,Jonny Owen and co-star legend, Vicky McClure, about the making of the film, embarrassing old music videos and “cwtching’“for the original film launch.
‘Svengali’ tells the story of Dixie (Jonny Owen), a small town guy with a big dream. He leaves a humble Welsh mining town for the bright lights of London, intent on becoming the manager of the best band in the world. This is a feel-good British comedy – starring Jonny Owen, Vicky McClure, Martin Freeman, Maxine Peake and Matt Berry – with a heart of gold and a soundtrack to match (featuring music by The Stone Roses, The Coral, Jake Bugg, The Libertines and The Prems).
