"The story of Canvey Island, 1970's England and the greatest local band in the world.
The final film in filmmaker Julien Temple's trilogy on British music of the 1970s, OIL CITY CONFIDENTIAL is a prequel to his landmark films about punk figureheads the Sex Pistols in THE FILTH & THE FURY and Joe Strummer in THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN.
A feature length documentary about Dr Feelgood, the film explores their as yet untold story of four men in cheap suits who crashed out of Canvey Island, Essex, England in the early '70s, sandpapered the face of rock'n'roll and left all that came before a burnt-out ruin.
