Far better than I expected it to be

"Scene Of The Crime, Killwhitneydead's new DVD offering, is nothing what I expected. It use to be customary to have the DVD consist of only the show with a few extras strewn about. Not so with Killwhitneydead. On here, the documentary serves as the true highlight.
Killwhitneydead have intrigued me since the day I found out about them. The music is unrelenting and the excellent samples are something I've been unable to dismiss. But once I started looking into them, reading all this stuff about how they were banned from their hometown, why they couldn't play live, etc., that added another dimension to this insane band. Well, all those stories are cleared up as the lead member of KWD, M (or Matt), sheds some revealing light on the band as a whole. As disappointed as I figured I'd be this documentary is far too interesting to turn your back on. Live clips, how the band actually started, and everything up to the re-release of So Pretty So Plastic is included on this feature.
The bonus interviews with band members new and old are nice to watch, however not essential. The interview with the cover girl of So Pretty So Plastic, original and re-release, is funny but not at all what I expected. Give and take though. The live set shot in the bands' hometown is exactly as advertised, raw. Raw doesn't mean poor quality though. Seeing how insane the crowd gets and how much that influences the band's performance is pretty amazing. The music videos/stage antics are about normal, aside from the video (hilarious). Then of course you have the standard photo gallery.
To truly enjoy Scene Of The Crime I do believe you need to be a fairly significant KWD fan. So if you are a fan and are like I was, wondering if all the rumors are true about the band, then this is far and away worth the money. Other than that, well, just enjoy it."
