X - The Unheard Music DVD (review)

This is the DVD release of 1985 file about Los Angeles punk band X.

I have to say that I really enjoyed watching this for the first time. I have to admit I thought the beginning was king of strange, but once I got used to the way it was shot, it was pretty good.

You see film of the band playing shows plus interviews with band members John Doe, Exene Cervenka, Billy Zoom and D.J. Bonebrake were a lot more interesting i thought than the interviews for Decline.

This movie made the members of X seem a lot more like down to earth people and gave some insight to their personalities. Billy Zoom talking about coming from a musical family, and D.J. Bonebrake talking about his musical stylings and copying the sounds of a coffee maker was pretty interesting.

There's also interviews with Brendan Mullen founder of the Masque in Los Angeles and Bob Biggs of Slash Records. There was also some other interviews with a couple of other record executives as to why they did or did not sign X to a record contract.

If you have not seen this I recommend that you track it down and watch it.

Cheers,

Brian Guy
