Urgh! A Music War Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

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, [[Performer~P77773~XTC~xtc]], Wall of Voodoo, [[Performer~P53884~Oingo Boingo~oingoboingo]], [[Performer~P67800~Steel Pulse~steelpulse]], Surf Punks, [[Performer~P391788~999~999]], [[Performer~P72340~UB40~ub40]], [[Performer~P88627~Echo and the Bunnymen~echothebunnymen]], 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, Rovi
