Bros: After the Screaming Stops is a music documentary following the long-awaited reunion of the 80s pop sensation Bros. After decades of being estranged, Matt and Luke announced they would reunite for a comeback gig in 2017, 30 years on from their last concert. Using master interviews, archive and behind the scenes footage, Bros: After the Screaming Stops revisits the band’s heyday in direct juxtaposition with their rehearsals leading up to their anniversary comeback gig in 2017.
The story of Bros is one of immense success, global fame, unprecedented highs and truly devastating lows. It is one of tragedy, triumph and heartbreak, of noise and youth, silence and reunion. It is the story of brothers, the best of friends born only minutes apart, bound together by blood and music, taking on the world and creating a reality from their dreams.
“I made a conscious decision because of Stevie Wonder to not be superstitious...”
- Matt Goss, After the Screaming Stops
“I only wear T-shirts with dead musicians on, so they can live on … through my t-shirts.”
- Luke Goss, After the Screaming Stops
In 1989, Bros, led by identical twins Matt and Luke Goss, took the world by storm with their catchy songs and gorgeous good looks, with fan-mania not seen since the Beatles quickly ensuing. Fans knew their whereabouts 24/7, with many queueing outside their home for up to 12 hours. Bros were everywhere: their debut album ‘Push’ has sold 10 million copies worldwide, and their singles were Number One in over 20 countries, with their biggest hits being ‘When Will I be Famous?’ and ‘I Owe You Nothing’. Bros were the only band to appear in every issue of Smash Hits from 1988 to 1991 Amongst the elation, tragedy struck - as the brothers celebrated their Number One record, they learnt the shattering news that their little sister, Carolyn, had been killed by a drunk driver. With the addition of juggling financial issues and deep-rooted sibling rivalry, what followed saw the downfall of what Bros had built in the past 12 months.
When the documentary premiered on British television in December 2018, nobody was prepared for the colossal response: it’s the rebirth of Bros.
Statement From The Director
“The first time we saw brothers Matt and Luke in the same room together, the brotherly bond I felt I understood was blown into a million pieces. Even though many years had passed, a lot felt unresolved. Not even the untimely passing of their mother had brought them back together. It was clear that they were willing to give everything they had to the project, an openness rarely seen in people who have been through so much. What was originally presented as a nostalgia tour through this early 90s pop sensation was very quickly transforming into something more meaningful, far more painful and oddly hilarious at times.”
