"The Four Aces Story: Legacy in The Dust"
"The Four Aces Story: Legacy in The Dust"
(Winstan Whitter, 2007, 100 min.)
The Four Aces in Dalston played host to some of the biggest names in music during the Sixties and Seventies: Desmond Dekker, Prince Buster, Jimmy Cliff, Ann Peebles, Percy Sledge, Ben E King, Billy Ocean, Bob Marley, Chrissie Hynde, The Slits, Sex Pistols and Bob Dylan to name but a few. During the Eighties the club became Labyrinth, playing an integral part in the birth of Acid House and the then nascent Rave scene - before taking Rave to an international audience, The Prodigy played their first ever show in the club on Dalston Lane. Sadly, as with so many areas of East London, Dalston succumbed to Olympic regeneration, and the club was demolished in 2007. Winstan Whitter has preserved the legacy of this hugely important venue with his documentary film 'The Four Aces: Legacy In The Dust', a comprehensive history of the club as told by those who played there.


Part of the monthly Maysles Cinema series 'Keeling's Caribbean Showcase', curated by Keeling Beckford of Keeling's Reggae Music and Videos.
