We've Only Just Begun

We've only just begun follows Paddy Wilson's journey, as his obsession with Karen Carpenter begins to take control of his day to day life. What begins as an interest soon develops into obsession followed by psychosis. It's a comic adventure that builds to an exciting and excruciating climax.

Simon Goddard has interviewed everyone involved in the making of the Postcard legend to tell this thrilling rock’n’roll story of punk audacity, knickerbocker glories, broken windscreens, raccoon-fur hats, comedy, violence and creating something beautiful from nothing, against all the odds.
