Movie Info

This music documentary presents 30 different performances nonstop, featuring both well-known and lesser-known bands with names that sound like they were picked at random from words thrown into a salad bowl and then mixed at high speed: Pere Ubu, XTC, Wall of Voodoo, Oingo Boingo, Steel Pulse, Surf Punks, 999, UB40, Echo and the Bunnymen, and so forth. The sounds recorded on this documentary are as varied as the names of the bands, and so there is something for everyone here -- at least, everyone enthralled by music as boisterous and eccentric (in some cases) as the nomenclature of the groups themselves. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovimore

A great concert movie, it's got a lot of fantastic bands, and if you love new wave music, you'll love it.

Captures performances from some great and under appreciated 80s bands, including Gang of Four, The Cramps, XTC, Dead Kennedys, Oingo Boingo, The Police, Wall of Voodoo, Echo & The Bunnymen and Devo.

My favorite Concert movie of all time. Remember watching it on USA's "Night Flight" on TV back in the 80s. Great live concert footage of classic new-wave/punk bands of the time including XTC, The Dead Kennedys, Gary Numan, Oingo Boingo and a most outrageous live performance from The Cramps featuring Lux Interior! Classic 80s music time capsule!
