Rough Cut & Ready Dubbed
Rough Cut & Ready Dubbed, Hasan Shah & Dom Shaw’s fabulous long unseen movie of the post-punk period between 1978 and 1981 that is more than just a music record, featuring as it does the looks, the poses, the rucks, the riots and the slaggings of bands and their fans. Accompanied on DVD by a hilarious companion film called ‘Rough Cut & Ready Dubbed Re-visited (2005)’, with terrific footage of the Wasted Festival and some of the original bands 25 years on.
This DVD also includes an interview with the directors’ Dom & Hasan on the making of the original and the new update. Also has some cracking performances from exponents of Punk, Mod, Oi and Ska all filmed in the same DIY ethic that spawned punk itself. Sometimes dark and prophetic, sometimes hilariously funny, the film was the winner of the Grierson Award for best documentary on its original theatrical release in 1982 and is now available for a new generation to enjoy.

“This doc captures the anarchic spirit of the punks, skins and mods in London on the cusp of the 80s. It’s crackling with energy…an archive nugget” – Raindance Film Festival 2004
