VIDEO ABOUT TERRI HOOLEY: “The Godfather of Northern Irish Punk”

Northern Ireland in the 1970s. Suffering from violence the country was a musical wasteland, as the filmmakers of Motherland say. There were less bands. Only a few places they could perform at.

In the late 1970’s Terri opened up the record shop ‘Good Vibrations’ on the most bombed street in Europe at the time. The record shop was a major focal point for the local music scene. Inspired by the people he met through the shop and the talent he saw in Belfast, he set up a label of the same name. The label went on to release music from numerous bands from the Belfast punk and ska scene.” [source]

Now, 65 years old, Terri Hooley led an Irish film crew through his city. Through the streets of Belfast. Watch the short flm below.
