Product Description

Following the widely acclaimed Lost In TV retrospective DVD, Suede are reissuing their classic Introducing The Band live longform video in the new format.

Originally released in 1995, Introducing The Band captures the band at a pivotal point in their career with the then unknown 17 year old schoolboy Richard Oakes boldly stepping into the shoes of their recently departed original guitarist and the stellar success of next album Coming Up still a long way to come.

Unsurprisingly then, the furious performances are of a band with everything to play for. Visually too, the tour was one of the band s most ambitious with the inclusion of specially commissioned backdrop films provided by the late Derek Jarman s production team, creating a rich and often gorgeous multimedia experience.

Introducing The Band was filmed in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Paris and Amsterdam and includes revealing backstage footage along with the backdrop films in full and runs to almost two hours in total.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suede - Introducing the Band 12 May 2003
Well what can I say? Suede are just as excellent now as they have been from day one, and I'm so glad they decided to re-issue Introducing the Band on DVD. I have had the video from the moment it hit the shops all those years ago, but finding it on DVD was just a treat. Obviously, the picture etc. is a much better quality than VHS and Suede are just simply mindblowing. Packed with many great Dog Man Star hits (DMS album is rumoured to be many a Suede fan's favourite Suede album) as well as out of this world B-sides, this DVD is an absolute MUST for any die hard Suede fan. I would, however, like to see Love & Poison also brought out on this format too.... That would complete the set of Suede's visual releases just perfectly.
What I really like also is the fact that you have a great little insight to the content of Lost In TV in the extras section, as well as the photoshoot, Suede assing around (Simon's electric chair bit - quite amusing!) and Suede in Japan.
A lovely little number!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to the band 31 Jan 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The vast majority of this DVD was originally released on VHS in 1995.

The picture quality is ometimes a little below standard, but this is expected on a live concert DVD from the mid 90s. Sound is crisp and best played loud.

The four gigs filmed for this release have been spliced together very well and you cant really tell where the cuts come in. This could be due to the fact that the stage backdrops are the same for the whole tour.

The songs included are all recognisable Suede numbers, not too many obscure b-sides or new songs (at the time), mainly singles and album tracks from "Suede" and "Dog Man Star".

There are a few extras on the disc, including backstage scenes from Tokyo, basically showing the band messing around in their free time. These extras were not on the original VHS release. You also get a lyrics booklet included in the box, helpful for new fans, but old fans should know all the words already.

A nice little DVD, goes perfectly with the "Lost In TV" video anthology to give you an incomplete history of Suede material.

4.0 out of 5 stars introducing..... 17 Jan 2004
i was lucky enough to see suede at the end of 2003 live before they split up and thought they were amazing.this excellent dvd captures them live after the departure of bernard butler and with richard oakes filling his giant shoes.he does a great job and it's hard to believe he's only 17 at the time, i wish i could play like him!classic tracks such as animal nitrate, new
generation and a great version of the wild ones are all here and the rest of the songs are great.brett's rather camp hip shaking dance during new generation is worth the price alone,hilarious!.
i'm knocking a star of it though because they don't play the drowners or she's not dead two of my favourite songs.stil worth buying seeing a great band at the top of their game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Androgynously Amusing 11 April 2011
This is a suitable DVD collection for fans who long for their vintage style. It was recorded when Richard Oakes was 17. Brett Anderson was also performing amazingly with his androgyny style yet amusing us, fans. This is a must have record to those who admit as Suede Fans. The Tour Film is really representing at each video as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog Star Jarman 27 Feb 2005
This DVD is exactly what most live DVD's should be. You take one of the best bands UK had to offer in the 90's and have them play their best material in their greatest period with backdrop visuals by a great director. Their performance is stunning throughout and the direction of the whole performance is close to perfect.
However, I believe that the gem in this DVD - which, by the way was not included in the VHS - are the tour films. The films that Derek Jarman directed are played in full. In an ideal world, these would have been the original videos for the songs. Unbelievable!
