Playhard interviews Exit Calm

Heather sits down with the guys at Playhard

Our good friends, exit calm, graced The Lucky Pig with their presence at the last Playhard. They enticed fans from as far afield as France to witness an amazing, intimate acoustic performance that lived up to the wealth of superlatives pouring in for this band.

These guys aren't regulars at Playhard for no reason - we love them.

We had a lovely chat and heard some beautiful tunes - check out the video

Svengali Stars meet Playhard

Svengali: "Rock 'n' Roll world's The Office" (NME)

Heather had the great pleasure of catching up with Vicky McClure and Jonny Owen at the last Playhard @ The Lucky Pig to chat about SVENGALI - the highly anticipated new film which is out in cinemas on Friday March 21st.

Over a cocktail – or two, they tell us about the experience of making what we think we be a classic Indie film. It is a brilliant comedy romp in fine rock n roll tradition featuring some of the best in British acting, comic and music talent of our age such as Maxine Peake, Roger Evans, Matt Berry and Martin Freeman with Jonny and Vicky leading the charge.

We loved the web series that kicked it all off and the movie is a blinder! The soundtrack (which includes The Stone Roses, Small Faces, The Coral, The Fall and Miles Kane) is out now and the DVD will follow on April 9th.

Svengali Movie

Svengali Movie


The cult YouTube comedy hit series of webisodes – is now a feature length production. The movie features a cast of critically acclaimed actors and real life rock stars and music biz personalities playing themselves. The online series was called ‘the best on-line comedy on the net’ The Evening Standard and ‘the Rock & Roll worlds’ ”Office”‘ by the NME.

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. A feel-good British comedy 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).
