Ear Goggles #6

This is a badass DVD zine featuring live performances from twenty-six punk bands in Canada, along with some other odds and ends. I am blown away by how much time and effort it must have taken to go to all these shows, get great footage, and then edit it all together into a DVD with familiar zine qualities. Most of the bands here fit somewhere into the thrash/ hardcore/ metal categories. I was really into Congress, Ken Mode, Hightower, OFF!, and of course, Fucked Up. The band Rebel Spell sounds great in their live clip, but elsewhere on the DVD they have a music video that just sounds flat in comparison. Other than that, there’s a bunch of metal bands that were way too heavy for me and a few punk bands that didn’t really draw me in. The bands that I wasn’t into, but some would consider noteworthy include: The Vibrators, Jello Biafra And The GTMO School Of Medicine, Buried Inside, The Banned, The Real McKenzies, and Toxic Holocaust. Also in the DVD are a short film, a skate video of Andy Anderson, and fun, low-budget advertisements from local businesses. Sadly, this edition is now out of print. But it looks like the guys who run this project put out new DVDs pretty regularly and they only cost five dollars, so I’ll be keeping an eye out for the next one. –Lauren Trout (eargogglesdvd.com)
