    • Synopsis
    • Naive Macclesfield musician William and his band The Alaska Factory have pinned their hopes of success in London, the city of opportunity and dreams. But William's dreams soon turn sour. The rest of the band detest William's miserable songs and seem intent on producing more commercialised music, their frightening record producer Vincent seems to be sliding further into drug-addicted instability and the object of his affections, the perplexing Madeline, remains out of reach. And just to top it all, he witnesses the bizarre murder of Paisley, the lead singer of The Unfortunates, by a pair of dwarves. William must piece together the apparent connections between Vincent, the murder, and a 1970s punk band called The Dwarves of Death.
