When Suzy arrives in London to visit an old school friend, she is plunged into the ruthless world of the ‘groupie’. Fuelled by sex, drugs and jealousy, her new lifestyle fosters in her a cold cynical instinct for survival - but tragedy is never faraway. With its effective blend of gritty location work, brooding flash-forward devices, and a soundtrack by cult acid folk and prog rock legends Comus, Forever More – who also star- and Titus Groan, Permissive is a dark British countercultural artefact that is shot through with a grim authenticity.
Also includes Stanley Long's ultra-rare 1971 film Bread, in which a group of friends, hitch-hiking back from the Isle of Wight Festival, decide to stage their own music event. But how will they afford it? Exploring the same cultural milieu as Permissive (and featuring its own bona fide cult British rock band, Juicy Lucy), Bread takes a somewhat more light-hearted approach to its subject.
