Strange Fruit

 

Or an album of pictures from the British film 'Still Crazy'

 

'Still Crazy' is a quirky little film about the ex-members of a fictitious 70's rock group 'Strange Fruit', who some twenty years later, having fallen on hard times, try to reform and relive their past glories.  There is much slash potential, and many theories on the convoluted relationships of the various band members.  Me, I'm a Ray/Les aficionado.  Give it a try, you might like it!

Apologies for the text btw, hope the orange is better than the red. I hate red text, but I'm trying to find a compromise that matches the colours of The Fruits  tour bus.  I know, I've flipped it !

A Brief Plot Synopsis

Twenty years ago, at the Wisbech Rock Festival, Strange Fruit (Les, Ray, Beano, Brian and Tony)  performed for the last time.  A thunderstorm, the band members arguing, it all brought about a catastrophic separation triggered by the death of Brian's brother Keith, their former lead singer.

Twenty years later.  Ray is living in a Gothic mansion he can't afford with his wife Astrid.  Les is running a roofing business, and happily married to his wife Camille.  Beano is living in a caravan and working in a garden centre, Tony has the condom concession on a Spanish island.  And Brian has disappeared, having had a breakdown after the death of his brother Keith.

Karen, the former girlfriend of Brian, dreams of bringing the Fruits back together.  Can she succeed?  Can the Fruits possibly get back to their former glory?  Can Les ever forgive Ray for replacing his idol Keith as lead singer?  Watch the film and find the answers...
