On Twitter, a designer who identifies himself only as Mark (Stuff_By_Mark @The_Ren1981) has been putting up these imaginary movie posters that take New Wave songs and imagine each of them as a film from the New Wave of British cinema aka 1960s kitchen-sink realism. It's a clever idea that cuts to the core of what these groups were about - and it's nicely done.
Only quibble: "Too Much Too Young" is perfect as Specials choice, but "Friday Night, Saturday Morning" would have been even perfecter.
He does do "Up the Junction" for Squeeze, but of course that was actually originally the title of a film from that run of kitchen-sink cinema.
