Goth pop band The London Suede found a perfect artistic match when they joined forces with the now late filmmaker Derek Jarman. This richly featured DVD is a celebration of the Jarman-Suede art of decadently large film backdrops on stage and often-homoerotic imagery that enhances the band’s lyrical message. This is two hours of concert footage with the backdrop films shown separately with the songs as videos. There is also a lot of candid footage of the band on tour in Europe. The tour footage dates from 1994 and also here is exclusive archival film footage from the band’s personal collection.
