This black vintage t-shirt is from a live shooting for the movie Urgh! A Music War at the Santa Monica Civic Center in 1980. The movie is a collection of live performances of punk, new wave and post-punk bands. This specific concert was billed as "The First Urgh!". The bands who performed live at The Santa Monica Civic Center on the first night August the 15th were the English group Chelsea, the California native Dead Kennedys, X, and the Cramps. The second night featured the Dead Boys, Pere Ubu, the Members and Magazine, and Wall of Voodoo.

After shooting in Santa Monica, Derek Burbidge filmed live concerts in London, New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Frejus France. The remaining bands that appeared in the movie included Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark, Magazine, The Go-Go's, XTC, Devo, Oingo Boingo, Gary Numan, Klaus Nomi, Steel Pulse, Surf Punks, 999, UB40, Echo & the Bunnymen and the Police.

After the first distribution of the film in 1981 by Filmways, the Urgh! released in 1982 to theaters and received a cult following.
