Many many thanks! to the Sundance Channel for showing Urgh!
Urgh! A Music War was a great documentary film of some of the most interesting
and impressive bands in the New Wave and Punk genres. It was released
in 1981 and distributed by Lorimar. Later, it was issued as a video tape by CBS/Fox Home Video. Here's just a partial listing of bands featured in the film:
As you can see, this film contains quite a diverse sampling of what was happening in the music scene of that era. The big problem is that this title is out of print!
The object of this page is to rally support and distribute contacts for a lobbying effort to get this title re-released. At this point, it'd be great on standard video tape, but hopefully we can convince CBS/Fox to re-release it on DVD so we'll have great sound and video designed to last.

|From another Urgh! fan: Also, you should know there's a mistake on your page; you say that the IMDB has a complete artist/track listing from the film; actually, the IMDB listing leaves out a few of the performances (like Chelsea, Surf Punks, and another band I don't know).|
