This documentary combines interviews and concert footage for an in-depth look at the history of No Wave, an aggressive flavor of underground rock music born in New York City in the 1980s. Subjects run the gamut from Glenn Branca and his influential all-guitar orchestra to the undulating minimalist punk of Suicide and the art-rock experimentation of Sonic Youth. The filmmakers also catch up with contemporary bands inspired by No Wave, including Liars, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Gogol Bordello.
