"A film about music, about those who sell it and those who buy it. Those who direct it and those who write and perform it. Those who just listen and those who listen and never forget. Master and Servant. But which is which...The new music. Four young Englishmen. Friends who have grown up together. They began with keyboards and a tape recorder because drums made too much noise around the house.Concert tour. Surrounded by a buccaneer crew of British and Anzak technicians, three forty-foot semis and equipment that belongs on a launch pad, they range across the landscape, setting up and striking week after week, city after city. Up by afternoon and out by dawn. Not even time for a sound check.Engulfed by seas of fans, who slip through cracks in the walls and haunt them backstage, youthful Americans who will soon inherit this landscape. And close behind a special bus full of fans, winners in a be-in-a-Depeche-Mode-movie-contest trying to catch up with their idols. (They did finally in Tempe, Arizona, only to lose their way to the concert and miss them after all.) At the tour's end nearly seventy thousand fill the Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, California to watch a spectacle of lights and music performed by four friends, on three keyboards and vocal mic...and a tape recorder."D.A. Pennebaker
