Heaton Park DVD petition?

Having sorted tickets and accommodation for next year’s run, I naturally had to feed my anticipation with that Fools Gold clip from Made of Stone. Only “I Wanna Be Adored” from the first night can top what I felt, but I can’t shake that nagging feeling that I may never get to see the rest of what was filmed at Heaton Park.

I know it would probably take a lot of money to process the remaining footage with as much love and care as those 13 minutes, but I reckon they’d have a bestseller on their hands if they released a Heaton Park DVD / Bluray / Live album.

Being that this is not a novel idea, I’m looking to find out if anyone’s tried this before. If not, I’d love to start something that would tell the band, their management and Shane Meadows / Warp Films that we want to see it all.

So I’d propose to also take the money factor out of the equation by promoting a pledgemusic.com effort where contributors upwards of a certain level would get a copy of at least the best of what was filmed.

Either way, see you in June!

They could just tighten and enforce immigration law, but that would be too simple of course… 🙄
