Subject: URGH!- A Musical War

Written By: HawkTheSlayer on 05/03/06 at 3:00 am

I was sitting just now, and I was watching a video I haven't seen in some time.

This is called "URGH!- A Musical War". It was made in 1981, and had 36 or 37 different bands in it.

The filming took place in 5 separate places- LA, New York, London, Portsmouth, and Frejus.
Bands included are: The Police, Devo, Skafish, Steel Pulse, Wall Of Voodoo, Echo & The Bunnymen, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts, and Klaus Nomi.

I found it to be quite the historic, if underrated, piece of 1980s music history.
If anyone else remembers seeing this or actually were at one of the locales, I would LOVE to hear about it!

For anyone else who wants to know about more acts that were in it, or is curious about songs or whatever, I am more than happy to provide the answers.

FYI, I also have an interesting video about our fellow rockers Down Under, called: "Australia NOW".
