Prompted by the release of new feature drama Good Vibrations we are delighted to present two films from master documentarian John T. Davis which document the actual men, music and mayhem of Ulster punk in the late 1970s.
Shellshock Rock captures and mirrors the rough aesthetic of punk scene with much of filming was carried out in dingy bars, clubs and in Terri Hooley’s Good Vibrations record shop. It features the music of Protex, The Undertones, Rudi, The Outcasts and Stiff Little Fingers.
Self-Conscious Over YouIn this sequel to Shellshock Rock, Davis captures the concert organised by Good Vibration Records at the Ulster Hall in April 1980 when almost 1800 people crammed in to enjoy local band The Outcasts.
Good Vibrations will open from March 29th at the IFI.
