review by SCOTT M
Filmed from the middle/back.
The tape looks like third or fourth generation. Bit grainy, colour a bit off, but still watchable. A good steady camera angle from the middle/back. Decent close ups, mostly of John, and about average sound.
Gig wise it's exactly the same set as the Reading gig (see F&F6), except that no one tried to hit John with a firework at Reading! As we found out in Mariano Miramontes review of the gig in F&F10 Argentine fans tend to get a little excitable! That's just fucking mental though. Plastic cups are one thing, but a firework? You don't really see what happens, it's just a puff of smoke next to the drums, and then an explosion. Surprisingly they finish the song ('Seattle'), and then it's goodbye until a local journalist warns the crowd to pack it in. Which they seem to do, and then get on with enjoying themselves, which they're more than capable of doing. Especially during the more well known songs like 'Rise', 'Public Image' and of course 'EMI'.
A good gig, but to be honest if you've already got any of the other PIL '92 videos you really don't need this. It's pretty much the same as usual...
An excellent quality cassette taken straight from the mixing desk also exists of this gig.
