Good Vibrations

The story of Terri Hooley, a pioneer of Belfast’s music community and a man affectionately known as ‘the Godfather of Ulster punk’, has been brought to the cinema with a 2013 Irish film Good Vibrations.

Amid the violence that divided Belfast throughout 1970s and 80s during The Troubles, Terri Hooley sought to bring some peace through the unifying power of music by opening up a record store. Hooley opened Good Vibrations in a derelict building on the most bombed half-mile in Europe. Good Vibrations was a record shop and also a label. Good Vibrations signed local punk rock bands including The Outcasts, Moondogs and, most famously, The Undertones.

Terri Hooley became a champion of the independent DIY music scene in Belfast. His passion and determination is documented in this biopic by Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn, which has received critical acclaim in the UK.

Good Vibrations opens in Toronto this Friday, 20 December at TIFF Bell Lightbox. The film is showing three times daily until Thursday, 26 December. More info and tickets are available at TIFF. To mark the 10th anniversary of filmswelike, award-winning documentary filmmaker Ron Mann introduces the 7:15pm screening on 20 December.
