Queens of Noise: Shout to the Top

Louise Wener (Sleeper) and Roy Boulter (The Farm) combine to tell the story of all-girl band Velveteens. Music business drama set in 1988 starring Shane Richie and Hannah Arterton.

London, 1988. Three ambitious young women form a band, Velveteens, to take on the world. But is the world ready? Armed with loud guitars, attitude to burn, and a makeshift manager, they are soon taking their first faltering steps into the music industry.

Written by two veterans of the business, Roy Boulter and Louise Wener, this is the story of a young band chasing the dream. With actor, singer and comedian Shane Richie as the band's temporary manager, Vince, this drama-with-music charts the life of Velveteens from formation to first gig; from first demo to (hopefully) first record deal.

Music directors ..... Brian Rawling and Marky Bates

Directed by Toby Swift.
