Robey  I  Film  I  2014
The stories in this film are told by the poet Tim Wells, a local to Hackney who agreed to be recorded by Craig Bilham and myself in June 2014. Over the month that followed, we took a number of journeys in around the west end of Seven Sisters Road and the now derelict Sir George Robey pub, attempting to trace the settings of Wells’ stories, collecting video footage and audio recordings that we felt had a connection to the words.  The soundtrack also contains elements of Klaar and O.D. Davey recordings, as well as Mudie’s Mood, the track referenced by Wells within the film.Our main inspiration was dub music; highly manipulated, built upon and reshaped versions of original reggae tracks - the type of which Wells was raised on - their results often lilting, fading, echoing, full of interference like a memory of the original parts, momentarily lucid and confused. Wells’ stories themselves are a truthful account of the dirty fantasies and dirtier reality of a youth misspent in the pubs and parks of Seven Sisters Road during the 1980s, told with the poignancy of sentiment, despite it all.
This film was commissioned by Rowan Arts for the heritage project Seven Sisters Stories: www.sevensistersstories.com
