4.0 out of 5 stars Like a pantomime, 9 Nov. 2008
This review is from: Rust Never Sleeps [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I'd forgotten I'd seen this on its release so was pleasantly reminded of a
pretty bizarre show. Musically its very good. I've never cared too much for Sedan Delivery and even less so for Welfare mothers but Shaky is relatively concise and economical here compared to later electric thrashes-hard to fault the rest of the songs, acoustic or electric.
The 'theatrical' aspect of it is best skipped through-The 'Roadeyes'-got to be the worst pun I've heard for some time- may be based on Star Wars characters as one reviewer suggests, but basically we have roadies dressed in habits with lights for eyes-think 'Lord of the rings' black riders but with hobbits inside the costumes-at one point they reenact the raising of the flag at Iwo Jima-but with a giant microphone instead..think I'm kidding? One of the few extras is a replica of the stage directions-e.g. Roadeyes bring out giant tuning fork-make tone-leave stage!
Its a tribute to Young that the quality of his set that we can have a laugh at this and still enjoy the music. He and Crazy horse are in fine form and seem unaffected by the 4th form production.
On the down side it looks like a VHS transfer and has little variation of shot. Still if you like the music that's all you need-incidentally I paid £6 at Fopp-maybe that's softened my view.
