A synopsis reads: "Inspired by the book by Lizzy Goodman, the film is constructed entirely from audio interviews and raw, contemporaneous archive; including the personal archives of the featured artists and their contemporaries, found footage, DV tapes unearthed from the shelves and storage units of New York music fans, cultural artefacts of a time and place on the cusp of seismic change.

"The award-winning filmmakers behind “Shut Up And Play The Hits” and “Blur: No Distance Left to Run” - Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace – painstakingly investigated every possible archive source, bringing together a treasure trove of interviews, live performances and home recordings to perfectly capture the names, faces, voices and atmosphere of a pivotal time and place in modern music history. 

"MEET ME IN THE BATHROOM is the definitive film about the last great romantic age of Rock ‘n’ Roll, featuring some of the biggest personalities and hits, and a wealth of never-before-seen archive footage."
