Fish movie to play again

Fish documentary Polska, shot during his Fishheads Club 2011 tour of Poland, is to receive its second showing at the Edinburgh International Film Festival this week.

The film focuses on the singer’s life on the road following a health scare. The makers say: “Part fly-on-the-wall, with plenty of live footage to keep the fans happy, the film’s most endearing moments are those of Fish quietly reflecting, in his own disarmingly honest style, on life, love and his musical inspirations.”

The 79-minute feature also includes Foss Paterson, Frank Usher, Kelvin Boys-Yates and Shaun Rogers.

Polska will be screened at the Odeon in Edinburgh at 8.40pm on June 25 (Thursday) following its first showing on June 20. Tickets are on sale now.

Fish heads out on his Farewell To Childhood tour later this week to mark the 30th anniversary of Marillion’s Misplaced Childhood:

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
