5.0 out of 5 stars Radiohead before the explosion 2 Dec 2005
Format:DVD
At last this great show has been put onto dvd. It captures Radiohead just before the release of their second album The Bends, but most of the songs showcased are from their first album Pablo Honey. I think if you are a Radiohead fan you would agree that the first album was an o.k album, but then again you couldn't really compare it to any of their later stuff as they progressed so quickly into making absolutely incredible music.
So this dvd captures the band just before the explosion.
Thom's singing on every song is incredible. The stand out for me is Street Spirit where his lungs soar into unparalled bliss. Every band member is on form here and clearly enjoying themselves in playing at the legendary Astoria in London. The crowd recognises this and gives the atmosphere a wonderful aurora. If you're a fan this is indispensible. If you're just getting into them I highly recommend this dvd as it's a good start off point. You will not be dissapointed!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 14 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
An energetic, powerful set from 1994, which sees the band deliver storming renditions of tracks from Pablo Honey and The Bends, as well as a couple of obscure classics. You is an explosive opener, Creep is toweringly anthemic, Vegetable is emotional. The band delivers phenomenal versions of previously unheard tracks from The Bends, including Bones, The Bends, Just, My Iron Lung and Street Spirit, after which the audience seems as blown away as we are on hearing those tracks today. Lost single Pop Is Dead rears its head for a raucous run-through, and one of the highlights of the set is an incendiary rendition of the classic B-Side Maquiladora, which makes the admittedly brilliant record version look decidedly old-school. Overall, the band delivers a record beating performance, with Jonny Greenwood's consistently startling guitar work and Thom Yorke's beautiful vocals leaving the viewer in awe. A rare gem, and a must for all fans of great live music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Capturing radiohead live 9 July 2006
By T. Hall
Format:DVD
This dvd captures radiohead playing an absolutely amazing gig. Would thoroughly recommend it to any radiohead fan. The quality of the performance is incredible - Thom Yorke's soaring voice, Jonny Greenwood's frantic yet precise lead guitar, Ed O'Brien's haunting atmospheric sound. The tightness and balance of the band is awe-inspiring.

The gig features songs from Pablo Honey and The Bends (plus a few others). These are radiohead's more 'conventional, pre-experimental' songs, which will appeal to any fans of current UK rock music. They feature catchy melodies, great lyrics and amazing, powerful instrumentals that blow most other bands out of the water.

My only complaint is that this is the only live radiohead DVD since 1994. We want more! We wanna see live performances of songs from OK Computer and beyond. I can only imagine how good a professional recording of Paranoid Android live would be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Concert but waste of a DVD's space 30 Jan 2006
Format:DVD
I am a massive biased Radiohead fan but over time I have found myself disullusioned with all the comments about not ripping off their fans but then they rip us off again. How many other top bands release 70 minute concerts or a dvd with 7 music videos and that is all on it. Radiohead have performed in so many concerts and as most fans know they are an excellent live band but still we are forced to waste money buying short ancient dvd's .
This is again a copy of a VHS tape and although the concert is great you feel that its over too soon. It is interesting to see how the crowd reacted to these "new" songs that a year later everyone who heard them would be going crazy about.
It is also the only live DVD released in over 15 years of Radiohead and is also over 10 years old. Wake up guys we are dying to support you guys and get good value DVD's with live versions of as many songs we can get but we have to buy bootleg concerts.
Why cant we get a "real" dvd with more features and more songs, videos etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars You need this energy fuelled video! 24 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This performance, surely one of their best of all time, captures the incredible energy which is formed when the five members play as one. Thom Yorke writhes and contorts with such intensity that it sums up all that is Radiohead. Ed thrashes around in his corner, while Jonny, his long brown hair swaying with every movement, leaps and bounds with each chorus. Meanwhile, Colin remains calm in the background, cooly and ably plucking his guitar, providing the steady rhythm for the others to follow. Phil, cleanly shaven as ever, holds the quintet together as they threaten to wildly burst. The playlist includes tracks from their first two albums, 'You, My Iron Lung, Prove Yourself, The Bends, Creep...' The irregular camera angles and the fantastic lighting combine to heighten the experience. This is a video you need in your collection, my only criticism is that it has to end. You`ll be shouting 'More, More!' along with the crowd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great band, great gig 10 Mar 2014
By Jimbo
Format:DVD
Used to own this on VHS and loved it so really glad to see it reissued on DVD.

Great atmosphere, great playing and well worth owning for anyone even remotely interested in Radiohead. Quite quaint hearing Thom repeatedly apologising for playing the 'new stuff' from The Bends too :-)

A must buy IMO, a band in top form - well recommended.

It's a good way to pass an hour, but an epic live show this ain't. This video encapsulates an angry, loud, entirely guitar based performance from a young Radiohead. Read more
