"Filmed in 1980, Urgh! bounces all over the US, the UK and Europe capturing some of the greatest underground bands of the era at the heights of their powers. You're left wondering how some of these acts didn't become household names as you make your way to the record store for further research." -Ben Gibbard
This music documentary presents 30-plus New Wave musical acts performing live without narration or context. Shot around 1980, the film offers a broad cross-section of bands, from superstars-on-the-rise like the Police to underground staples like Gang of Four and the Cramps, alongside now-forgotten oddities like Invisible Sex.
