So Yeah, Urgh ! A Music War Rocked

…especially when Andy Partridge almost knocked out Sting with a pineapple during the finale.

Oh, I love that film. Especially the Pere Ubu and Klaus Nomi sequences.

Can you beleive it's the first time I've seen it ?

Including Pere Ubu was really cool. I think a lot of the story stuff that David Thomas loves to do comes off better live than on record.

They cut The Cramps! And Gary Neuman! And kept John Otway! WTF?!?!?!

But yes, that was awesome. Hadn't seen that movie since the late 80's sometime.

where did you see it? was it screened on one of those elitist cable channels, or is it available now on DVD and netflix is being cheap? i saw that they were carrying the stewart copland doc of the police (which features some xtc appearances), but no URGH...

We have met the creepy, and he is Booji Boy.
It was on VH-1 Classic (which I think we get on digital cable only) on Monday night. I missed the first twenty minutes but joined during the excellent run of Echo & the Bunnymen, XTC, and Klaus Nomi.

The rights, sadly, are completely tied up, so no DVD for the time being. The print they showed on TV was actually pretty good, and the sound was better than I remember from the excerpts I've seen before.

BTW, "friend" me on Netflix !

Man, that's odd. I didn't mind Otway but when I found out the others were cut, well, damn.
