.I've talked to Lawrence after the Madrid set in March and here's the news due for this year:
- A new Go-Kart Mozart Cd "On the Hot Dogs Street"

- A mini-album promoting the above work
- Acording to Lawrence, this is the year for the release of Lawrence of Belgravia

Saint Etienne presents FINISTERRE – A film about London by Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans

Director: Paul Kelly and Kieran Evans (58:48)
Produced by CC-Lab
Presented by Saint Etienne, Finisterre takes us on a journey through London, from the suburbs into the heart of the city over an imaginary 24 hours. Featuring the observations and reminiscences of Lawrence from Felt/Denim, Mark Perry, the editor of original punk fanzine Sniffin' Glue, singer Vashti Bunyan, and many more, Finisterre

"Enraptured by the possibilities the city offers for creating exhilarating forms of social and cultural life... FINISTERRE should serve as an inspiration to London Lovers everywhere."
-Sight & Sound

"Beauty, pathos, magic -- FINISTERRE, like the city it chronicles so lovingly, has it all."
-The Telegraph

**** [four stars] "A feature-length love letter to a pop-art metropolis. The camera's unequivocally seduced by the dazzle and the drizzle of the wonderland."
