Über zine salutes true DIY culture icons John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd with a special screening of The Blues Brothers in Liverpool.

Jake and Elwood’s ‘On a mission from God’ pledge to save their childhood orphanage and the whole film captures the Do It Yourself spirit, which is re-awakening across the world.

Peeps are bowing out of the rat race for a just cause or to take up the challenge of their own creative projects and are doing it bettter than the faceless corporate giants.

Without backing from studio bigwigs Saturday Night Live legends Belushi and Aykroyd convinced the local Chicago Government to let them drop a car 1000 feet from the top of the Daley Plaza, demolish a shopping mall and stage a 90 mph car chase and pile up by saying they’d do it during ‘quiet weekday mornings.’

DIY: To help celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Blues Brothers big screen debut all you have to do is head down to Studio 2, Parr Street for our Über issue 2 launch party and special screening on Thursday July, 29.

Tuck in to Aretha’s soul food buffet and enjoy a blistering blues set from Xander And The Peace Pirates before we screen what the Pope has just deemed a cult and Catholic classic.

To win a pair of tickets, simply tell us which soul legend plays the Reverend who inspires Jake and sends the Blues Brothers on their mission from God?

The winner will be chosen by random tomorrow lunchtime from all corrct entries sent to shots@purplerevolver.com
