There is virtually nothing that needs to be said regarding the tremendous importance of the video footage collected on this DVD. For the first time, fans of VON can see the imposing power of their performance. Very few VON fans ever had the opportunity to see this band in a live setting. Their live performance, however, is an integral part of the essence of VON. In the same way that VON?'s music was simple but effective, the band?'s live image was similarly minimal but calculated. Unlike many of their contemporaries, VON?'s imagery was not marred by being trapped in a particular time and place. The aesthetic of VON is timeless and is as powerful now as it was then. This DVD collects the only video footage of VON known to exist. The two shows presented here both took place in the Bay Area. The second of these two shows contains a song entitled ?"Jesus Stain?" that has never before been released. In addition to the video footage, the DVD comes with an 8 page booklet and a DVD slideshow containing previously unreleased band photos. This DVD is essential for understanding VON. VON was more than just a band that released a few demos. During their short existence VON created an entire aesthetic universe. Each element, the music, the lyrics, the artwork, and the live performance coalesced into the composite whole of VON.
