review by JON EDWARDS
Filmed from dead centre of balcony.
This gig is filmed at a really odd angle from dead centre of the balcony. However, the camera does zoom in and out, so you do get some good close ups. Picture quality is a little grainy, but generally fine. Sound quality is okay, but a little distant. A bit like the Pistols Shepherds Bush video, though not as tinny. This is the best PiL line up in my opinion, but they look swamped by the huge stage, and I must admit I lost interest three songs in. However, the crowd really seem to enjoy the gig, despite incurring Lydon's verbal wrath by spitting constantly. Lydon is an excellent showman, but it's not the same on video is it? Worth getting for collectors and hard-core PiL fans.
