Good Vibrations

Some people whose taste I trust have said some very complimentary things about new movie Good Vibrations and I read only yesterday that it reduced film critic Mark Kermode to tears.  The signs, therefore, are most definitely good.  It dramatises the story of Terri Hooley and his Belfast-based, punk era record shop and label, Good Vibrations.  It's on general release in the UK from this Friday, March 29th.  Glasgow Film Theatre is showing it this weekend, as is the Edinburgh Filmhouse.  From the trailer, it looks charming and just the thing for a Bank Holiday weekend:

To prepare for seeing it, The Undertones will occupy a fair amount of stereo time this week.  I'll also be sure to blast a few tunes from some current groups who share a spirit and sound with the early Good Vibrations bands such as Dublin's power pop belters The #1s:
