Featured DVD Reviews from Issue #81
Grant Hart talking about Grant Hart
By norb

Tony Molina: Blitzed and Remissed: Live at The Echo 3/10/14
VHS tape
By Daryl Gussin

It’s a cool artifact, but if you’re interested in truly being able to grasp the live experience, this isn’t the ticket.

Mondo Fuzz: Twilight of the Idles
By Lisa Weiss

This film visits all the music holes, record stores, and burger joints where the likes of The Bad Lovers and Woven Bones are the pied pipers who lead our youth down the path of perversion.Live footage, interviews, and lots of vintage movie clips combine to create a documentary for the ages.

Every Everything: The Music, Life and Times of Grant Hart
By norb

There are no testimonial snippets from bandmates, or relatives, or drug buddies, or ex-lovers, or scene luminaries; no external voices to help spackle together a portrait of This Enigmatic Grant Hart Fellow. It’s just Grant Hart, telling us what he would like us to know about the music, life, and times of Grant Hart.

Devo: The Complete Truth About De-Evolution
By ty

This DVD compiles most, if not all, of Devo’s early videos. It is really amazing to watch and wonder how the mainstream managed to embrace the band, even if it was only for a nanosecond.

Punk in Africa: DVD

By Sean Arenas

Punk in Africa is an awe-inspiring film that confirms that punk, in its essence, functions most potently as a protest device and as a means to liberate a radical consciousness.

Only the Young and Tchoupitoulas: DVD

By Indiana Laub

This double-disc set contains two documentaries from Oscilloscope Laboratories. The films are set on opposite sides of the country, but their themes of adolescent innocence and exploration draw them together.

Dragon City: Punk Rock in China: DVD

By norb

To wit, four hardy, young lads, living the usual hardscrabble existence of the post-apocalypse come across an expat American who is sorta like a cross between George Carlin and Stan Lee, and lives in what he claims is the last fully-functional nightclub on earth, Dragon City.

D.O.A.: To Hell N’ Back: DVD

By koepenick

This brand new video documents the farewell tour of these Canadian punk legends. Two shows at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, BC bookend this release. Both of these seemed fairly well-attended, this being their hometown and all. 

Tribute to Ron Asheton: Featuring Iggy & the Stooges & Special Guests: DVD

By mp

This DVD isn’t about Iggy anyway. It’s about former Stooges Guitarist Ron Asheton. The current lineup of the Stooges pays tribute the only way they know how—by just destroying everything with music.

Ten Years War, The: DVD

By Paul J. Comeau

Tor Johnson Records has been an integral part of the Providence, RI, and greater New England music scene for over ten years. In May of 2012, a number of past and current bands from the label’s roster came together to celebrate the label’s ten year anniversary. 

In Heaven There Is No Beer: DVD

By mp

The film documents the creation of a small, closely-knit music scene in a big city, and how it all fell apart because of the usual bullshit: greed, in-fighting, and pettiness.

Cosmic Psychos: Blokes You Can Trust: DVD

By norb

Since the ‘80s, this Aussie trio—sort of like the missing link between Cream and the Lurkers, or arguably the antipodal equivalent of the Dictators—has drunkenly thundered out jillions of slabs of ear-pulping muck, and this documentary takes you from their roots ((rural Australian teenagers who somehow get hold of punk records and then there goes the neighborhood)) to the present ((rural Australian fifty-somethings worrying about losing the family farm they’ve had for three generations)).

Tribute to Ron Asheton: Featuring Iggy & the Stooges & Special Guests: DVD

By norb

Full disclosure: I only love about half the first Stooges album, I think Fun House pretty much sucks, and I generally find watching concert DVDs about as exciting as watching other people making out. That said, I like this DVD just fine.

Sweet Rock: The Red Weasel Story: DVD

By CT Terry

The music and movie aren’t gonna knock you on your ass, but both are charming and lovingly rendered. If you’ve seen your favorite band play in a basement, you will definitely find this story heartwarming.

Anything Boys Can Do… and Mark of the Ninja
By kurt

Some of the bands covered include Tribe 8, The Voluptuous Horror Of Karen Black, Sexpod, Thrust, and more.Anything… does a fine job at showing the various positions of women and what their views are on all sorts of female-related issues.

Twenty Feet from Stardom

By Laura Moreno

The film explores the triumphs and tragedies of the real life stories of the back up vocalists on the greatest popular hits of the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s.

Filmage: The Story of Descendents/All
By Colin Flaherty

A slick and thorough documentary about a very important band and its underappreciated brother(poor All!), Filmage does a great job in covering every musical endeavour of Bill Stevenson in all their different permutations (including his stint in Black Flag).

Cosmic Psychos: Blokes You Can Trust
Theatrical Release
By Colin Flaherty

An entertaining portrait of “Australia’s most unlikely rock and roll heroes”.

Brick and Mortar and Love
By Chris Terry

Brick and Mortar and Love follows the decline of Louisville record store ear X-tacy. In an early scene, hip-hop group Nappy Roots (perhaps the only people of color in the whole movie) performs to a small in-store crowd. It’s sad to see an independent business go, especially a beloved record store, but Brick and Mortar and Love doesn’t inspire sympathy. I was exhausted by the end, ready to hit “stop,” and move on.

Band Called Death, A
Theatrical / Streaming
By Colin Flaherty

This emotional rollercoasterdocuments the rise, fall, and rediscovery of a band of musical brothers.

What Did You Expect?: The Archers Of Loaf Live at Cat’s Cradle
By kurt

I still love the Archers Of Loaf and will listen to them regularly, but now know that should they go on tour and come to my city, I certainly have no reason to go see them. That’s not just because I’ve seen them live on DVD, but because they don’t seem to put on much of a live show.

By keith

Apart from folks who were in the basement at the time and want to try and see if they can discern a friend, colleague, or bandmate in the dimness, I don’t think there’s any reason why someone else would ever need to watch this.

Last Shop Standing: The Rise, Fall and Rebirth of the Independent Record Shop
By kurt

Damned, The: Live Live Live in London 2002 Tiki Nightmare
By mp

There’s a guy in a monkey suit playing drums, a goofy tiki-themed volcanic backdrop, and Hawaiian dancers. The sound is great and it’s professionally shot.
