Teenage Superstars | 15

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. Punk was reborn in the shape of a new type of independent music. No longer would bands look to tidy themselves up and sign to a major record label in the hope of appearing on Top of the Pops. Independent music in Scotland now meant 'No Compromise' and this is the story of those bands and the personalities involved.

This new documentary from the creators of 'Big Gold Dream' tells the story of what happened next in the uncompromising world of Scottish indie music. The Vaselines, BMX Bandits, The Pastels, The Soup Dragons, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Primal Scream and Teenage Fanclub all appear. Bursting with new interviews, rare archive, untold stories along with some of the most amazingly difficult, scratchy, noisy, genius pop music ever given to the world. This is Teenage Superstars and you need to watch it
