Thanks for the plug Neil!
Not a lot of film action around sadly, but plenty of music - well documented in yr blog, enjoying it. I think Bonnie Prince Billy (Will Oldham) is in Matewan, does that count as a link?
The Harp Club mural incidentally, must ring a bell with someone! It was enormous: at ground level (entrance) it was featured near-distance rural details, then fields/hedgerows, stretching to an idyllic landscape, the last floor went skywards and featured birds and clouds. It remained totally un-graffiti-strewn all the time I knew it. A lost marvel...
