Here’s some ideas to keep ears, eyes & minds busy during lockdown
- Go watch the movie Suburban Steps To Rockland – The Story of the Ealing Club. The 90 minute feature film documentary brings together interviews with Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Eric Burdon, Pete Townshend, John Mayall (and many more). It explains why music journalists have cited Ealing Borough as “The Cradle of British Rock Music”
The movie is available in UK/Ireland via a free 7-day limited subscription via: NOW TV (please ‘google’ “Now TV & Suburban Steps” if this link appears broken)
DVD’s are also available via the Ealing Club shop: www.ealingclub.com
Suburban Steps To Rockland premieres on Belgian TV in April 2020! Please keep supporting to see it move further.
