Good Vibrations


Terri Hooley is a radical, rebel and music-lover in 1970s Belfast, who opens a record shop calling it "Good Vibrations". Through it he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city’s nascent underground punk scene. Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, to bring his city back to life.
