I’ve heard of Captain Everything and Belvedere before, since they are on Union 2112. I’m not really into their music that much though. Now you can see their live performances, including a live set from Divit. The show was recorded at Camden Underworld
The first set you can watch is from Captain Everything, who are from the UK. They put on a fun energtic set filled with catchy punk songs. Captain Everything even sings about the dude from Temple of Doom, who rips out people’s hearts. Though I think it’s called Kali Ma, not Kalimbah! DUH! Their music tends to get annoying after awhile for me. I think because they sound like all those pop punk bands from the late 90’s that just sounded like everyone else. I actually think all the bands on here have that sound and I like my punk bands with a little more substance and variety to their sound.
I actually prefer Captain Everything and Divit to Belvedere. Divit had some cool songs, but sometimes gets too melodic for my liking and Belvedere is just whiny and blah. The video quality is pretty decent and better than other music DVDs I’ve seen. The audio is okay, some songs don’t sound as good as others. I think this DVD will be good to get if people actually like these bands but for me, I don’t really care for them. There’s over 30 songs on this DVD and if you want to check out some newer bands, or if you actually listened to Captain Everything, Divit or Belvedere, the DVD is worth buying.
