19. DIRECTOR MIKE HODGES, from Pop Stars in My Pantry
One of the best most wonderful surprises to come from Slippry Feet was getting the chance to interview director Mike Hodges about Get Carter. He'd liked a song Jack we'd done with Oli Maxwell using the Roy Budd bassline and generously made all my fanboy dreams come true by popping round to my flat on Gray's Inn Road for a cuppa and 2 hours of Carter chat in June '96. Here he's talking about the film's beach climax with Caine and Hendry.
