Turn Up The Strobe tells the story of two of the Twentieth Century's most vital artists - Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty - and those who understood them. A story of success, fear, ego, power, graffiti, house music, independence, control, disaster, the Roland TR-808, love, sheep, marketing, God, death, 12' vinyl records, escape, freedom, populism, a Ford Galaxie and the money and fame all of these things attract.
