A treat for Bunnymen fans

"This is a low-key concert video following Echo's undervalued Siberia album. It has a good selection of tracks from that Britpop-flavored cd plus intense renditions of some classics. Ian McCulloch is a bit hoarse at times, but it doesn't detract from the performances. Ian and Will Sargent make the songs sound fresh and intimate. "Stormy Weather" and "Ocean Rain" are particularly good. I would have liked to see "A Promise" and "It's Alright," but you can't please every fan's particular taste.
Maybe the real treat here is the long, rambling interview with McCulloch and Sargent. Relaxed and leisurely, they talk about their whole career from the present album to the early days to various friends and associates. Mac's famous ego is intact, as he constantly says that E&B are the coolest band in the world.
He ends the concert by saying, "Thank you - you've just seen the best band of all time." Their sales have been modest lately, but this isn't such an outrageous claim. Certainly they are one of the most distinctive British bands to come out of the '80s new wave scene."

"OK, what's missing here are the details on the set. For a live music DVD, the track listings are critical. Amazon seems to forget these sometimes. So, from another site, (dvdtalk dot com) which has an excellent review, here are some missing details:
With a Hip
Show of Strength
Bring on the Dancing Horses
Scissors in the Sand
All That Jazz
The Back of Love
The Killing Moon
In the Margins
Of a Life
Nothing Lasts Forever
Lips Like Sugar
Visual aspect is 16:9, audio options include PCM stereo and Dolby 5.1.
---- Now I'll have to pick this up and give a proper review."
