The film was commissioned by South West Arts as a community collaboration between the filmmakers and some of the bands active in Bristol, UK in 1980. It was screened as part of a rock film season at the Bristol Arts Centre* (seen at the very end, on the stage of which some fans perform). This is the 27-min full version made on Super 8mm film with sync sound and digitally restored in 2005.
