They were always ahead of the curve. Casual fans may remember the crazy hair and equally crazy videos, but their classic electro-synthpop sound influenced an entire generation of bands. Their biggest hit song "What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)" may be an 80s icon, but the band continued to innovate and today remains at the forefront of electronic music. .
This DVD celebrates the 25th anniversary of this hugely influential and popular electronic pop act by giving fans a full live concert, their music videos (never before released on DVD), bonus archival footage and photos, and a brand new EP, all on one disc.
The live concert took place in Philadelphia in 2008 and featured
James, Paul and Kurt in fantastic form. A German film crew shot the
entire show from multiple angles and captured the fantastic energy of
both the band and the audience. The track listing for the concert is:
1 Peace and Love, Inc.
2 Wrongful Death
3 The Seeds of Pain
4 Walking Away
5 Baby Just Wants
6 Burning Bridges
9 Growing Up With Shiva
10 I Like The Way You Werk It
11 Run Away
12 Back in the Day (Old School Electro Version)
14 Are 'Friends' Electric?
15 What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy)
In addition to the full concert, the DVD contains all five videos released by the band during their time at Warner Records, available for the first time on DVD, taken directly from Warner's archive masters. Bonus features include several photo montages, a video montage from their first tour of South America in the late 1980s, and a few other clips, including the infamous "Wall Street" video.
As if that wasn't enough, the DVD also contains a full version of the
band's digital-only "Modulator" EP in MP3 format. Only available
through digital download, this nine-track EP contains remixes from
the Synthesizer album by such folks as Dave Aude' and Tommie
Sunshine, as well as a brand new track with Kurt on vocals ("Don't
Touch The Devil") and a live recording of a track not previously
available in stores ("Wrongful Death").
