‘BEAUTIFUL MISTAKE’, the Welsh music documentary starring JOHN CALE alongside members of CATATONIA, MANIC STREET PREACHERS, SUPER FURRY ANIMALS is to receive its television premiere.

‘Beautiful Mistake’ will be shown throughout the UK on S4C and S4C Digital on May 3 at 10.35pm. The 75-minute film was made over nine days in Cardiff and has been described by the director as “a snapshot of Cardiff in the year 2000”.

Most of the influential members of the Welsh music scene make appearances. Manic Street Preachers frontman James Dean Bradfield duets with John Cale on ‘Ready For Drowning’, while Catatonia play brand new song ‘Whispering Room’.

Elsewhere in the film, Super Furry Animals debut new song ‘Presidential Suite’, which was reportedly inspired by Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, and also provide the closing music.
