Urgh! A Music War

With punk sliding into new wave Miles Copeland swooped in for a rock ‘n’ roll film. It’s a fairly uninspiring one but there are some good bands therein.
Some of the footage was shown on the Old Grey Whistle Test, as this was before videos became a big thing for bands.
Klaus Nomi put in a stellar performance, and my dad was a big fan of his.
I remember the album opening British ears to a few US bands and perhaps it worked vice versa.
In poetry terms it shows where John Cooper Clarke was placed as he turns in one of the decent turns from the film.
