(2001) dir. Eve Wood
A low-end documentary about the Sheffield, England music scene in the late 1970’s to the 1980’s. It’s an interesting phenomenon about how this music scene grew up around the avant-garde of Cabaret Voltaire and The Human League, basing their music on synthesizers that they constructed themselves, a whole different aesthetic from the Punk scenes in other cities. The weird thing is that these bands wound up morphing into the synth-pop hitmakers of their day, including ABC, who came to be known for poppy New Wave with crooner-ish camp vocals and stuff. It’s an interesting little scene but the film is not much to write home about.
