Romantic Warriors II: A Documentary about Rock In Opposition

During the 70’s there was this fantastic movement in music called Rock In Opposition. It began when Chris Cutler and Fred Frith of Henry Cow realized the music industry was not taking progressive rock seriously. They found it difficult to get their music heard and out there so they gathered up some Progressive Rock bands from all over Europe including Magma, Univers Zero and a few others to play a festival called Rock In Opposition. The Festival started a whole new movement in music and helped get progressive rock on the map. This documentary tells the story of Rock In Opposition but, unfortunately, they are in need of more financial support. They are hoping to gain $5,000 in donations to complete the film by July. Already at $2,755 they are approaching their goal with 18 days left to help. If you’d like to help you can do so HERE

Regardless of whether or not you donate I highly recommend looking into the bands involved.
