Jesus and Mary Chain and Primal Scream are set to feature in a new documentary from director Grant McPhee.
McPhee previously released a movie, The Big Gold Dream, a movie which documented Scottish Indie labels, Fast Product and Postcard Records and the scene they generated which facilitated the rise of bands Orange Juice, Teenage Fanclub and the Jesus and Mary Chain.
The new movie, Teenage Superstars, is the second installment in Mcphee's vision, and it's being geared up for release. This time the director focuses his lens on the city of Glasgow in the 1980's, and includes interviews with the team involved in Creation Records, BMX Bandits, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Teenage Fanclub and Primal Scream.
In a press release in promotion of the film, McPhee says, "This is a film that shows people what they can achieve when they break the rules."
To complete the project, the film's creators have launched a crowdfunding campaign. They seek £20,000 or over $25,000. Besides posters, mugs, and other memorability, a donation of £1250 will earn backers an associate producer credit.
Check out the trailer, and step back in time to an era of big hair, ambitious ideas and rock 'n' roll from the edge of some other place.
