Biography

Simon Green was born and grew up in rural Hampshire, escaping to Brighton aged eighteen. There he fell into the jazz/hip hop/funk/soul scene centred around Rob Luis and nights like phonic:hoop. An accomplished musician as a teenager, he began producing his own tracks, pushing at the template established in the sweaty little venues studding the Lanes.

Absolutely awesome! Really captures the thrill and romance of Bonobo's live set. Pula's stunning amphitheatre makes an amazing backdrop for it all. Gives me hairs on the back of my neck every time I watch it.

Have to disagree with one of the comments on here. Yeah, you probably can go on Youtube and search for a live set by Bonobo but this DVD offers more of a complete package. It's got engaging interviews with Bonobo and his collaborators, full and proper sound and is presented in a beautiful hard back photo book. You'd be missing the point a little just watch stuff on Youtube - it's like sitting at home in your back garden, in a tent with your headphones on and pretending you're at the festival….

Being a big fan of Bonobo (Simon Green) for a few years now I jumped at the chance to get this.

It seems like the CD is falling steadily in popularity, inevitable once digital music on portable players sourced with online and computer based outlets. If anything, the vinyl LP is going the opposite direction with a recent resurgence. I think tactility is a factor of that, and that is exactly what you get here, in this package. The DVD / CD set is housed in a book sized high quality card case, I mean, basically it is a book, a book starting with a complete list of all the dates Green and his 15-piece live band performed on the tour, followed by photos from a few venues, fantastic photos, interspersed with the members of the band followed by a few pages of small candid, random (in the best way!) photos in montage. The foreword by Radio 6 Music's Gilles Peterson is a very good introduction, as he's a fan and knows Green well.

It's just a great way to present Bonobo, with the clean, ordered, utterly visual design of Green's previous album covers reflected here, it really is a design job well done, with quality photos, on quality thick stock paper and a solid feel to the whole product. There is also a credits page at the front and back, even listing the original support bands and everyone involved musically and behind the scenes.

The "classy" comment I made in the title encompasses the live performance too, which is lit fantastically with changing colour shades, smoke and just a great atmosphere, with the Pula Amphitheatre in Croatia adding to it. The musical performance is just special, with the talent of the band on full show, and the man himself, Green, on the electronics, with a couple of multi tasking turns on the bass guitar and keyboard too.

I just received my copy in the post! I was lucky enough to see Bonobo play at Dimensions Festival in Pula and watching this DVD just takes me back, it captures the electric atmosphere and incredible energy of the crowd. The performances are brilliant throughout. The live album sounds amazing, pure quality all round.

Genuinly EPIC. It's amazing how you can catch a whole live atmosphere through a DVD. I saw Bonobo live a few years ago at Glastonbury, and it totally took me back. Such good musicians, and really nicely shots. Love it - I think Bonobo should release a live DVD every year.

It's strange that the DVD is presented as a bonus feature, especially since it is easily the best thing about this release. Yet there is no set-list on the artwork, and the bare mention throughout makes the DVD seem like a tacked-on afterthought. Nevertheless, it's an excellent performance from Simon Green and Co, and the live renditions work magic on the excellent new material. It's very well shot too, though it does suffer a tad from having the picture cropped into a 2.35 ratio, like it's an epic movie or something. Look, it's not Indiana Jones. Having the crowd and top of the stage chopped off works against the live atmosphere and looks a bit silly. Still looks and sounds great, though.

So while the concert footage may be superb, the rest is disappointing.

The CD is a mess. Bizarrely, they didn't just present the main performance as audio. Instead, they shuffled the track order around, ditched some tracks and added others. That isn't necessarily a problem, were it not for the odd decision to include radio sessions peppered throughout. So the energy and ambience of the live concert is consistently interrupted by clean and crisp studio recordings that are so spotless that they may as well be album cuts. This makes for a patchy listen that feels weirdly cobbled-together.

The BOOK is a real non-event as well. Granted, the cover looks great and it does look nifty on the shelf. Beyond that... meh. The heavy paper certainly feels great and it looks deluxe... but there's little inside worth the tactility. The photos are incredibly dull; double-page spreads featuring band-members silhouetted against stage lights, the kind of standard workaday photos you get in gig articles.
