BUSK! makes me want to go out and play even more, to protect this as a basic right in line with free speech. I also came away from the film truly impressed by Charlotte's cultural scene, and wanting to visit someday. Perhaps with my guitar in hand.

Novelist David Mitchell expressed it thus in Black Swan Green: "You look a total wally if you dance too early, but after one crucial song tips the disco over, you look a sad saddo if you don't." In this collection, "Living, Loving, Partygoing" is that crucial song."
