Pity Party Film Club
Urgh! A Music War

Sat 7 December 2019

Pity Party Film Club presents a screening of Urgh! A Music War, the seminal new wave concert film from 1981.

Unabashed propaganda for the new wave of rock ’n’ roll on the rise as the Reagan era reared its ugly head, Urgh! A Music War captured some of the most exciting musical names of its era live in prime form, providing each of its 24 acts the space of a single song to leave an indelible impression before moving along.

Urgh! has endured as a vital time capsule of its musical moment and features performances from Devo, Echo & the Bunnymen, Joan Jett, Klaus Nomi, The Go-Gos, Au Pairs, Oingo Boingo, The Police, The Cramps, Gary Numan, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and XTC, to name just a few!
