Is it strange looking back at the seven years between 'Where Did The Night Fall' and 'The Road', and how much the industry changed in that time?
"Yeah. Yeah. A lot. Believe me... I had, unfortunately, a few upheavals. For instance, the documentary doesn’t talk about the fact that my last business partner is in jail for £200m tax fraud and that’s why we fell out…
The guy who funded my last label and the reason that I fell out with everybody and the reason that I was upset with Pablo [Clements] was because he stayed with that person and that guy stole everything. He took my catalogue and is now in jail for the biggest tax fraud of its time… And I’m still, to this day, trying to get my catalogue back. So, there are a lot of crazy stories to round it all off.., I really don’t want to sound negative though because I always say that there are many truths. There are always two sides to a story."

Agree about the War-Stories->WDTNF era - releases seemed to become a bit scattershot. Wasn't 'Another Night Out' supposed to be a standalone album (Sure Pablo even hinted there was another Ian Brown track lined up for it)... guess relationships were quickly going sour and it was a case of getting stuff out the door before it got impossible.
Watched the Q&A this morning, interesting watch - suspect James has been through some media training with respect to promoting the film - various answers and stories have been repeated almost word for word in several interviews over the last few weeks, so no majorly exciting revelations.
Interesting to hear that Pablo wasn't even in the original-working-cut. Wonder if he was one of the people who originally said a flat "NO" to being featured (like we're led to believe Tim did), but later changed his mind?
