Good Vibrations tells the story of Terri Hooley, a radical, rebel and music-lover in Belfast in the 1970s .

“New York has the haircuts, London has the trousers, but Belfast has the reason!”

Good Vibrations tells the story of Terri Hooley, a radical, rebel and music-lover in 1970s Belfast.

When the conflict shuts down his city, and all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on ‘the most bombed half-mile in Europe’ and calls it Good Vibrations. Through it, he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city’s underground punk scene.

Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, and to bring his city back to life.
