THE GOOD ARROWS
‘You’re A Star’ is title track of Trainspotting's Irvine Welsh’s new film ‘Good Arrows’ - broadcast this Sat night (31st Jan) on ITV4
About Irvine Welsh's "Good Arrows".....
"You’re A Star" is the title track for Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh’s hilarious new ITV mockumentary comedy drama, “Good Arrows”, showing this weekend. "Good Arrows" is set in South Wales, where the world of minor celebrity meets the world of professional darts, and is Welsh’s directorial debut on a feature film.
Irvine Welsh says: "It is a satire on the most vacuous and self-defeating foible of our times - the cult of minor celebrity.”
ODE TO JOCKY WILSON
In the spirit of the darts theme of the "You're A Star" video - here is a poem published in the 1980's from the poet Angus Macintyre, Colin's grandfather. It's a tribute to Scotland's arrow-throwing legend who had more darts than teeth!
