Synopsis

Twenty years after Strange Fruit's highly publicized breakup in 1978 at the Wisbech open-air festival, the band--keyboardist Tony, who was working as a condom salesman in Ibiza; bassist Les, now a roofer in the frozen North of England; drummer Beano, leading a reclusive existence in his mother's garden; ultra-vain lead singer Ray, living beyound his means with his second Swedish wife; and Brian the fragile lead guitarist who is currently MIA--has been persuaded to get back together for a reunion concert, Wisbech 1998. "Still Crazy" charts their increasingly desperate efforts to recapture the magic, the music, the lost opportunities and the missed performances of their prime.
