URGH. [Dec. 18th, 2005|02:59 pm]
The American Caliban
[Tags|, ]

I managed to bittorrent a Beta videotape rip of the classic 1981 concert film URGH! A Music War.

Locals who want a DVD, let me know.

Others who are patient, the bittorrent is on demonoid.com here. I'm leaving my seed running for a while.

The film is an amazing document of early 80s new wave. XTC, Oingo Boingo, Wall of Voodoo, an amazing version of Devo's "Uncontrollable Urge", etc etc. It's not on DVD and only available on ratty old overpriced VHS or Beta (!) tapes.

Stimps would kill (or at least maim and hurl epithets) for such a DVD.

Goddamn that rocks. Grabbing now, will keep seeding for a while with whatever I've got.

If it's ripped from tape, it's probably not going to suffer much being VCD'd, I hope. I don't have a DVD burner!

Anal retention

looking through the credits on IMDB, they have the original lineup of Go4. I seem to remember Sara Lee in the movie. Who's mis-remembering here?

Also: if anyone is interested in an mp3 rip of the movie, let me know and I will fire up ye olde soul seek.
