indiepop DVDs

Post by alongwaltz » Mon Dec 30, 2013 05:20

I love love Happy Happy Birthday To Me's No Parachute music video collection. I also just read about the long out-of-print Munch Part I VHS collection from back in the day. Are there any other DVD video collections like these? Or other pop-themed DVD's like documentaries?

Oh, I have Belle And Sebastian's Fans Only of course. That one's terrific too.

There's the BMX Bandits documentary.

Not indiepop but might be of interest are Jonathan Richman's "Take Me to the Plaza" and the Daniel Johnston documentary.

I've also got the Wedding Present's *punk on VHS which I used to enjoy a lot but haven't watched in years and years (and no longer have a video player to be able to do so).

The Magnetic Fields documentary (Strange Powers) is pretty great. There's also the documentary about Lawrence from Felt / Denim / Go-Kart Mozart, although I'm not sure whether that's available on DVD?

That's called 'Lawrence of Belgravia'. No idea if it's on DVD. Same for the Dolly Mixture documentary 'Take Three Girls: The Dolly Mixture Story'.

I have DVDr copies of The Pastels' A Bit Of The Other, Gimme Shelter (c86-era video collection introduced by John Peel - Shop Assistants, Talulah Gosh, The Pastels, 14 Iced Bears, BMX Bandits, Stump... it's ridiculously good), and Bi Joopiter's Dead Eye 1. There was also a great Lucksmiths live DVD a few years ago... I have avi copies of the Munch videos.

Not indiepop per-se but it very DIY and utterly brilliant is We Jam Econo - all about the Minutemen. Would recommend this as essential viewing regardless of whether you like/know the band. I was a casual fan when I first watched and was blown away.

Was the Lawrence documentary ever finished recording?

They're not out yet. There was talk of the place I work for releasing them but I'm not sure what happened with that. They're great, anyway. I hope someone puts them out.

There's the Galaxie 500 DVD as well, Don't Let Our Youth Go to Waste. That's really lovely.

That Striped Sunlight Sound by The Go-Betweens probably qualifies. Careful how you go with it, though, Mrs Quentin and myself watched it for the first time one Saturday night and when we got up the next day Grant McLennan had died. Probably just a coincidence...

The chappy behind the Gimme Shelter video (and the two Shelter 'Ideal Guest House' compilations- a tape and an LP, both worth hunting down)- as well as being the man behind the Thunderball record label that put out records by 14 Iced Bears and Kilgore Trout- also compiled another VHS for CND in conjunction with the NME (so many acronyms!) called 'Carry On Disarming', it's introduced by Frank Sidebottom and as well as some of the big indie hitters of the time (New Order, Sugarcubes, Sundays, Morrissey, The Las, James, etc) also includes indiepop favourites The Carousel, Bachelor Pad, Telescopes , Napalm Death, Swans and more (incl. not surprisingly 14 Iced Bears)

Beer Monster, where are you now?

We used to spend hours watching that Carry On Disarming video. The Bachelor Pad song and video on there is amazing.



It also has a frankly disturbing Dr and the Crippens performance.

Love that so much. Used to have it on a VHS full of indie/indiepop stuff I taped off the telly. I'm guessing the only show that would have played that is The Music Box... Sam?
