Urgh! A Music War

jwz: “The long out-of-print Urgh! A Music War will be showing on VH1C on Mon, Oct 30 at 6pm PST (9pm EST). They have it listed as ‘2 hours’, which I hope means it’s the 124-minute edit, not the 96-minute edit that ran on IFC a few years ago.”

If anyone is able to get this tonight in digital form, email me (srk at mac dot com) and I’ll buy a copy from you.

  1. Wow, I’ve never seen it! If you get a copy, I’ll be over to see it in a couple weeks! Just let me know to set some time aside!

    From Wikipedia….” ‘Urgh! A Music War’ acquired a cult following in the United States in the 1980s due to its frequent showings on USA Network. It was aired on VH1 Classic on October 30, 2006 as part of its Rock and Roll Picture series. The film has been released on videocassette but not on DVD. It is currently owned by its original producer, Miles Copeland (founder of IRS Records), and he has the film of three songs from each band in storage, but because of the legal issues he cannot release it. If he does some day, there’s potential for a 6 hour 2 dvd special edition.”

    “This movie consisted of a series of punk and new wave songs, without narration or explanatory text. All clips were live, recorded around 1980, mainly in England and the USA. Clips were also taken from a concert in Fréjus, Var, France with the Police, XTC, Skafish and UB40 among others.”
