Movie Preview: Another Bit of Brit Nostalgia for New Wave music and the blokes who popularized it — “Schemers”

This Scottish period piece, about a budding concert promoter who books XTC and Iron Maiden and gets to say, “U-2? Never HAIRD’of’em,” is set in 1979 and into the early ’80s and looks gonzo and grungy and fun.

Whatever the audience for this sort of music nostalgia about that era in music, the people writing the checks for movies to get made in the UK seem to never tire of them.

“Schemers” is out March 30.
