I saw a pre release of this over a year ago - some old tassie champs were involved - emma and pip from 'love the bomb' who may now be living/touring in edinburgh? - and it was great - so invigorating and inspiring, plus so much great raw footage. Having said that, the cut I saw could also have been given the title "Steve Albini, Shellac and Big Black are never mentioned by name in the film". :)

Of course, I'm also a sucker for anything to do with the assassination collective
