Synopsis:
It’s an old, old story. Two bands start out at the same time, full of hope. Eventually, one of them makes it big—sometimes even very, very big. In the case of Irish writer Neil McCormick, his dreams of stadium stardom in late 1970s Dublin through his band Yeah! Yeah! (later re-named Shook Up!), sadly, came to naught, while his rivals in The Hype changed their name to U2, and, well, you know the rest.
