From The Basement
(Eagle Vision)


Using the proverbial no frills club sound check / rehearsal instead of a noisy club date as the basis for a new live performance DVD series over in the U.K. sounds like a really good idea, and for the most part on this DVD, it is. On Eagle’s 2009 From The Basement DVD, cutting edge ‘90s and beyond bands such as Beck, the Eels, Radiohead, Albert Hammond Jr., Super Furry Animals, Sonic Youth, José González, Thom Yorke, The White Stripes and more rock on down in a London basement with each portrayed in an intimate setting that focuses on getting a live performance right. Running over two hours, From The Basement offers a fine cross section of today's modern pop-rock bands as they appear in 2009. As the artwork on the DVD claims ‘No host, no studio audience, instead the artist and their performance take center stage.’ From the looks of this in progress TV show at their web site there’s plenty more to come down in the basement. Watching Super Furry Animals playing “The Gift That Keeps On Giving” down in the basement is a definite highlight of this first DVD of hopefully more to come. www.FromTheBasement.Tv
