URGH! A MUSIC WAR - Like Totally 80s!

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Like Totally 80s!: Break out your dusty spandex and join us for a week of unabashed nostalgia.

Urgh! A Music War is a singular rockumentary that takes you back to 1981 and the peak of the New Wave scene, featuring nearly three dozen artists including Wall of Voodoo, Toyah Willcox, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, The Police, The Go-Gos, Devo, Oingo Boingo, X, The Cramps, Joan Jett and many more. Taking a no filler approach, Urgh! is a series of incredible performances recorded in 1980 in the UK and USA with no narration or explanatory text—just amazing music from the best punk rock and post-punk acts of the day. Long unavailable due to rights issues, we’re excited to share this rare experience.
