Too true, I've been in meeting with loads of them. Was Sugarape based on meetings at Dazed and Confused?reminds me of doing a gig in sheffield and meeting this guy who kept saying "peace and fuckin yeah?" and other stuff from nathan barley, like he hadn't twigged that it was a satire against the kind of nitwits who go round quoting catchphrases from tv etc.
but perhaps the makers knew/hoped it would happen.
i find nathan barley extremely bleak viewing actually. I mean it's really good but more depressing than funny.
Sugar Ape's blatantly Vice isn't it? There was even a "Vice" issue, Vice is alright when they're not trying to constantly wind up liberals for the sake of it.Too true, I've been in meeting with loads of them. Was Sugarape based on meetings at Dazed and Confused?
Yeah I always assumed Sugar Ape was Vice and the "Vice" issue pretty much confirmed that. Dazed is a whole lot more girly and imo actually pretty good at face value.Sugar Ape's blatantly Vice isn't it?

At the moment the detonator’s going off and you’re part of it but until the effect has gone exponential, your mails are being sorted by one person so bear with me.
Many people have asked us exactly what the Four Lions project is. Clearly we can’t launch the film before its been shot, but I’ve pulled together a few paragraphs from the paperwork that’s been flying around. Its shameless hype but its accurate – unlike almost
everything you will have read in the press. No one who has read the script could disagree with a word here.
In three years of research, Chris Morris has spoken to terrorism experts, imams, police, secret services and hundreds of Muslims. Even those who have trained and fought jihad report the frequency of farce. At training camps young jihadis argue about honey, cry for their mums, shoot each other’s feet off, chase snakes and get thrown out for smoking. A minute into his martyrdom video, a would-be bomber looks puzzled and says “what was the question again?” On millennium eve, five jihadis set out to ram a US warship. They slipped their boat into the water and carefully stacked it with explosives. It sank.
Terrorist cells have the same group dynamics as stag parties and five a side football teams. There is conflict, friendship, misunderstanding and rivalry. Terrorism is about ideology, but it’s also about berks.
Four Lions is a funny, thrilling fictional story that illuminates modern British jihad with an insight beyond anything else in our culture. It plunges us beyond seeing these young men as unfathomably alien. It undermines the folly of just wishing them away or alienating
the entire culture from which they emerge. It understands how terrorism relates to testosterone. It understands jihadis as human beings. And it understands human beings as innately ridiculous. As Spinal Tap understood heavy metal and Dr Strangelove the Cold War, Four Lions understands modern British jihadis.
