"Based on the script I saw, it's an exploration of sexuality, using the model of
that time. Todd [Smith] being a gay filmmaker, it's also about what it was like to
be gay during this monumental time in the '70s when everybody came out. It
was fashionable to be androgynous, even for straight kids. It's all the same,
man, whether it was a boy or girl, and there's this metaphor for how everybody
closed down again with the onset of AIDS and people began to be so anti-gay.
It's a wonderful metaphor for all of that. I truly believe it's one of the best films of
1998. If the energy on the set is anything to go by, it will be brilliant." -- Antony
Langdon, Spacehog guitarist, on his contribution to the upcoming (fall) glam
drama "Velvet Goldmine" -- co-produced by R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe's film
company -- in which Antony and brother Royston have cameos.
