D. Chris Strouth & Rick Fuller 1979 USA 80 min.
In September of 1979, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis hosted the first ever "New-No-Now-Wave Festival", featuring music by The Fleshtones, The Monochrome Set, Tuxedomoon, The Suburbs, Dark Day, James Chance and the Contortions, Judy Nylon and a host of others - including rare footage of DEVO performing under the name ?Dove?. This is a concert film of New Wave in it's infancy, before MTV. Stylish, yet raw, this captures the transition from No Wave to New Wave, the moment before it all exploded. The footage was lost in a morass of girlfriend's closets for 24 years, now lovingly restored to its vivid black and white glory.
