A film about Glasgow's 1980's Independent music scene. The sequel of sorts to the award winning Big Gold Dream.
Scotland, 1982. The stars of Big Gold Dream had either split up or taken the Big Gold Road south to major label success in London. Glasgow was left with an 'indie label' void, but the seeds sown in Big Gold Dream would lead to a new era of rebellion. This new documentary tells the story of what happened next in the uncompromising world of Scottish indie music.
Featuring The Pastels, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Teenage Fanclub, Soup Dragons, BMX Bandits and The Vaselines
