Word reaches us of 'Awaydays' author Kev Sampsons latest film premiere. 'Powder' will have it's world debut at FACT Seel Street Liverpool on Thursday May 19 before an Autumn release.
During the 90s Kev managed Liverpool band 'The Farm' and although this film is not about the group, his observations of back stage antics certainly take precedent in the films scenes and anecdotes.
James Walsh of Starsailor supplied five songs for the fictitious group 'The Grams' and worked closely on the film with Liam Boyle, who takes the lead role. Liam, you may remember, played Elvis in Awaydays.
Also starring is Alfie Allen [Atonement, Soulboy].
Tickets for the film are available from the Fact website.

Freakbeat films have an exclusive filmed video with Liam which we shall publish once editing is complete.
