I Can't Stop It (1979)

Director: Signe Baumane

Primitive Calculators
Director: Janis Lesinkis

Playing in someone's backyard to about half a dozen people, the Primitive Calculators play one of their lesser-known songs. One of the original members of the band who introduced the screening said the band were "just a bunch of fuckwits from the suburbs who thought we could change the world, we failed, but for some reason people want us to make music again."

The footage is grainy and hard to see at times, but you can see how much energy the band was putting into the performance.

I was only 3 at the time this song was filmed so it is good to see it has survived this long.

Rating: 7/10
