This is a rather weak film with litte to no story line and really rather poor acting. It's simply a vehicle to present a succession of British rock 'n' roll bands from 1958. What strikes me as odd is that none of the acts presented are either famous or particularly good. I'm guessing that this would be just the type of music that my parents would have gone out rockin' and rollin' to of a Saturday evening down at the local dance hall. So, if you want to see a succession of competent amateur performers doing their bit, this film is for you.
Times were changing, and it's clear that most of the actors were too old to be digging this kind of music, but then, at this time rock and roll wasn't always being performed by youngsters. As with other music films of this pre-Beatles era it captures a time when people seemed happy to drink coffee from glass mugs, and click their fingers in time to the groovy rhythm.
This is fascinating to watch, but ultimately it's a poor film.
