Klaxons, Babyshambles members perform at Docklands film premiere

Carl Barat-narrated film airs in London

The new documentary about London‘s Docklands, received its premiere in London last night (April 23) – with members of Klaxons and Babyshambles performing its score live.

The Mark Donne-directed film, titled The Rime Of The Modern Mariner, was broadcast at St Anne’s Church in Limehouse as part of the East End Film Festival.

Former Dirty Pretty Things guitarist Anthony Rossomando wrote the score for the film, which was narrated by his former bandmate Carl Barat – also in attendance.

Rossomando led a band including KlaxonsJamie Reynolds and Steffan Halperin, BabyshamblesDrew McConnell and Rose Elinor Dougall to perform the film’s music live in front of the screen the documentary was being shown on.

The film examined the London Docks past and present, featuring interviews with former and current dockers mariners, many of whom were in the church to watch the premiere.

“It was something Mark had talked about drunkenly,” Barat told NME.COM of how he got involved in the project. “It came into fruition through Mark‘s doggedness and persistence. He’s just got up there and done something – everyone involved has been involved because of the love of something.”
