A Message To The World

Mutton-chopped Jesse Hector was a permanent fixture in the English music
press of the mid-Seventies and the electrifying live performances of his
band The Gorillas proved an inspiration to such faces on the burgeoning Punk
scene as Paul Weller, Billy Idol, Shane McGowan and Rat Scabies. Jesse has
always believed in the revolutionary and rejuvenating power of music the
cover of The Gorillas album showed his band of space ace Mods hurtling
towards earth on a meteorite to save the world with rock n' roll - and his
belief in music is as strong today as it ever has been. He now works as a
cleaner at Hackney Empire and The Royal Horticultural Society and this
documentary follows him as he journeys around London and retraces his fifty
years in rock n' roll - skiffling at the 2 I's in Old Compton Street at the
age of 12, playing guitar with Mod Freakbeat legends The Clique, fronting
proto-punk bruisers Crushed Butler and The Hammersmith Gorillas and
attempts to find out, as the NME's Roy Carr wrote in 1977, Whatever Happened
To Jesse Hector?

Message To The World is being shown at the Portobello Films Festival next
Monday evening December 4th at 9pm at Westbourn Studios, 242 Acklam Road,
W10. Admission is free and it'd be great to see you there.
