The wonderful short life of a girl trio from Cambridge fits in this mini-doc, diminutive like the naive pop they played with so much charm between the late seventies and the early eighties. Even though they were twee-pop pioneers, they failed to make it at a time when female bands ran after Blondie’s atomic pop + sexuality marketing or built radical sounds for radical demands like The Slits. In any case, nothing will take away the fact that they opened for U2 and Bad Manners, toured with the Undertones, were Captain Sensible’s backing band and the darlings of John Peel and the weekly publication Sounds, in which the ever-conducive impulse of those (of us) who work on the press led them to appear in a bigger font size than Iron Maiden. Maybe one of Paul Kelly’s greatest accomplishments lies in not overstaying his welcome, which is where many films fail by unnecessarily stretching the merits of this type of bands that are better off being a footnote in history.
