Kung Fu Records isn't the only imprint putting out quality DVDs. Those swell guys from the UK over at Punkervision.com have encompassed an entire evening of punk rock at the Camden Underworld in 16:9 widescreen digital format. Captain Everything!, Divit, and Belvedere all put on exhilarating sets composed of melodic hardcore punk.

The 106 minute disc is put together competently, there are options available to select watching one band's performance or choose a specific song to view. Four camera angles breathe fresh air into the production, one from each side of the stage, the middle, and one focusing on the drummer. I noticed one section during Captain Everything!'s set that the screen went completely black for a second, aside from that slight mishap the editing is extremely tight between shots of the band and some flashes of the crowd. The camera work is a tad shaky at moments, but unlike some of their contemporaries, not a single cameraman is picked up in the lenses of another sniper ?? kudos for that!

The audio quality is outstanding for a release of this nature and it's beaming through 5.1 surround sound! At first it appears a little dry, but once the 33 tracks begin to soak in it feels like you're at the show with the speakers pounding you ear drums in.

Each of the three bands thrust powerfully into their set lists, rarely stopping as they give the kids a reason to dance. None of the groups put on outstanding live performances, no gimmicks, no choreographed stage antics, and time is not wasted by talking either ?? just a straight up punk rock show the way it should be done.

The menus are a little fuzzy and the lack of ability to play the entire show are the only real faults behind the DVD. If you're a fan any of these bands or just looking for a quality show on DVD then I highly recommend adding this production to your DVD collection.

I didn't know this existed. Buying now just for the Belvedere footage. Crappy that we won't be hearing from them anymore.

I don't really give a shit about any of these bands, but I gotta say Kriby's reviews are usually on point. And Kirby, I have to extend a great thanks to you for turning me on to Voice in the Wire. Those guys kick fucking ass. I found it on slsk, and I liked it so much I'm gonna try to order it tonight. This score is for their album.

Worst reviewer on the site.

I actually hate that record. Lousy production and, save for tracks 1, 6, and 11, bland melodies. Biggest disappointment of 2004 by far (Adam's review had led me to believe it would be amazing). My first and last Belvedere record. Also, why is it almost twice as long as all their other records? Can you say sell-out?!

Hey, themarc, I can't either.

Goddamn, I cannot stop listening to Fast Forward Eats the Tape!!

i don't know why everyone thinks seeing a cameraman or two is such a bad thing...hell, you saw one or two cameras in "stop making sense" and that sure didn't hurt it...

oh, and i haven't seen this, but everyone should order it anyways...

Kirby's one tough reviewer. He's yet to give a release a score higher than 8. Or maybe he gets stuck with all the crap.

This score is for Belvedere.

The best band on this DVD is Belvedere.
