The Glasgow suburbs of the 1980’s may seem an unlikely launchpad for a musical revolution, especially one which would eventually span the oceans and in influence some of the biggest names in rock history, but that’s exactly what happened. Spurred on by a young Stephen McRobbie (forever known as Stephen Pastel), the youths from such suburbs as East Kilbride and Belshill were soon setting the world alight in bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream and The Soup Dragons. Director Grant McPhee (Big Gold Dream) has crafted an endearing, jangly love letter to these bands and their contemporaries, like BMX Bandits and The Vaselines (whom Kurt Cobain once heralded as his ‘favourite songwriters in the whole world’).
