Remarkably, 27 years after they formed, X, easily the best band from L.A., are still firing on every cylinder. Do they really have an average age of about 50? You wouldn't know it judging by this terrific live performance. You can:-
WATCH as Exene twirls her skirt!
THRILL to Billy grinning (and occasionally moving)!
SEE John's tie disappear!
NOTICE that DJ is finally starting to age!
It doesn't hurt that they seem to be having the time of their lives.
Extras are: 2 acoustic numbers performed by John & Exene, and a gallery of Billy Zoom's photos. Of the audience.
An excellent release, and certainly worth buying. Just a couple of reservations:
1. A bit short, about 74 mins. 2 nights were filmed, and as I understand it they play about 90 mins each show, so why not give us a full show or the equivalent of one? Dvd's can handle more than just 74 mins.
2. No "I Must Not think Bad Thoughts" - why not? A glaring omission.
Best track? John & Exene's acoustic version of See How We Are; amazing.
