VIOLENT FEMMES – “Permanent Record Live And Otherwise”Oct 14th, 2005
Artist: VIOLENT FEMMES
Meda / Titel: DVD / “Permanent Record Live And Otherwise”
They were the Indie-heroes of the 80s and 90s. At least two generations of fans have been lead through the confusion of puberty into the chaos of adolescence by the cracked voice of Gordon Gano and the brittle sound of the band, which met all requirements of the Alternative-Music-Universe…
Now, 22 years after their first album, the trio from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, releases its first DVD, containing a live recording from 1991 and 7 complete music videos in full length plus a spontaneous street-performance.
In view of the tracklist of “Permanent Record: Live & Otherwise” , the album represents the optimized package of the VIOLENT FEMMES. On one hand, there are the entertaining and dokumentary Live recordings and on the other hand the video-tracklist, which can be seen as a “best-of” compilation. An appreciation to one of the most important and definitely funniest Indie-bands ever.
