Tonight (5 March), director Paul Wyatt presents the world premiere of a new music documentary about FRED DEAKIN... ‘Into The Darkness: Fred Deakin And The Lasters’.

Exclusively premiering online at 8.30pm, the film will document Deakin’s journey post-Lemon Jelly as he takes his ambitious AV project: The Lasters, to the live stage for the first time.

Featuring a documentary with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, PLUS the full concert performance complete with beautiful animated sequences, the film promises to bring a whole new dimension to Deakin’s critically acclaimed venture. Watch the trailer for ‘Into The Darkness’ here:

Back in the early noughties, Fred Deakin was one half of Mercury Prize and BRIT Award-nominated duo Lemon Jelly who brought a sophisticated and happy blend of pop electronica to the world which entertained thousands at gigs and festivals. After releasing three full-length albums and much to the disappointment of their fans, Lemon Jelly stopped operations in 2008.

Now, Fred Deakin is heading back to the live stage with a new band featuring Charlotte Hatherley, formerly of rock band Ash, Abi Sinclair (Bat and Ball), Steffan Huw Davies (C A S T O R P) and an ambitious new concept album called The Lasters which follows in the tradition of The Who’s Quadrophenia and Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds.

Director Paul Wyatt’s film, ‘Into the Darkness’, chronicles Fred Deakin as he brings his “daring and stratospherically out there” musical passion project to life via his career as a DJ and club promoter to his highly-regarded and collectable work as an artist and designer which pioneered the vector art-aesthetic.
