Recorded at the book launch of ‘IT MAKES YOU WANT TO SPIT’ in the Empire, Belfast, authors Sean O’Neill and Guy Trelford tell of their labour of love in compiling this definitive history of punk in Northern Ireland. Henry McDonald, Stuart Bailey, Terri Hooley, Petesy Burns, William Maxwell also talk about what first attracted them to punk music and the positive influence it had on their lives.
The Defects, one of the original 1980s Belfast punk bands, give a live, energetic performance…and the indomitable Terri Hooley chips in with party piece ‘Laugh at Me’.
