Editorial Reviews

Combining in-your-face concert footage along with rare interviews of the band, WHAT DID YOU EXPECT? documents the Archers of Loaf s 2011 reunion tour and captures the excitement and explosive energy of two hometown concerts played at Cat's Cradle in Chapel Hill, NC. Archers of Loaf were the greatest indie rock band of the 90s, says director GormanBechard. No one had more energy on stage. No one put out better records. And to be able to capture that power on film was a challenge and a thrill. The film features twenty songs with concert audio produced by the legendary Brian Paulson. Included are favorites such as Audiowhore, Web In Front, and Harnessed In Slums, as well as rarities like Bacteria and All Hail the Black Market. Interspersed between the live performances are interviews with all four band members on subjects ranging from how exactly they came up with what is considered one of the worst band names of all time, to what s changed about life on the road since 1991, and how they actually miss their old van. I wanted the film to be as in-your-face and balls-to-the-wall as the band is on stage, the director explains. We used seven cameras, most hand-held, to make what I truly believe is one of the most exciting concert films of all time. You will feel as if you re at the show, right up against the stage, moving and sweating in unison with the hundreds of fans pressed up against you. TRACK LISTING: Audiowhore, Harnessed in Slums, Greatest of All Time, Lowest Part is Free, Freezing Point, What Did You Expect?, Worst Defense, Attack of the Killer B s, You and Me, Might, Bacteria, Web in Front, Nostalgia, Slow Worm, Wrong, Plumb Line, Revenge, Scenic Pastures, 1985/Fabricoh, All Hail the Black Market. The DVD also features 4 additional interviews, and 6 extra songs: Dead Red Eyes, Strangled by the Stereo Wire, Form and File, Let the Loser Melt, Step Into the Light, Smoking Pot in the City.

I was pretty damned sure that I was the greatest Archers of Loaf fan of all time, considering that ever since I first recorded Last Word and All Hail the Black Market being played back to back on an indie rock radio station in Boston, I pretty much eat, shit, and breathe everything Eric Bachmann releases.

When I was still living at home, I would have private concerts in my bedroom, where I would sing along to my favorite AOL songs at the top of my lungs to no one but my mother who would pace outside my closed door, ready to punch a wall. I have been to so many AOL shows that all four members of the band recognize my face when they see me and greet me by name. I have countless signed records and CD's, rare t-shirts, pictures of me with the band. I could honestly say that when it comes to Archers of Loaf, I was the man and it filled me with enormous pride and tremendous ego to wear the crown of "Greatest Fan" It did, that is... until I met the director of this film, Gorman Bechard who undeniably stripped me of my prized championship. Anything that I can boast of, Gorman has it checked off on his own list. In addition, he also had the ugly kid sketch you see on the cover of the DVD, which Matt Gentling drew, tattooed on his left arm.... and fueled by his own love for this band, set out to film this wonderful documentary.

I have been waiting quite some time to see What Did You Expect and it was well worth the wait! While watching this film, I sang along, drank merrily, and threw my arms around my lady, planting kisses on her cheek, smiling like a deranged fool. This movie gives you the feeling of being there live, witnessing an actual Archers of Loaf show. If you love this band, this movie will pump you up.

After being lucky enough to catch their reunion tour in Seattle, I was excited to find that they captured a few shows from the tour for a DVD release. It's a great reminder of one of the best concerts I've ever attended, as the set list is very close and these shows were recorded just a few weeks prior to the Seattle show. I was also lucky enough to see the Loaf a number of times in the 90's and can honestly say that the reunion shows (and this DVD) capture the band at the top of their game musically. Maybe the youthful energy isn't quite the same, although Matt Gentling still goes nuts on the bass, but the maturity of the group really shows in their playing. Years of solo touring have improved Eric Bachmann's voice since his days in Archers of Loaf and this experience is demonstrated by his knowing when to back off from a note or a line and sing a slightly modified part. This was something that he didn't always do in the latter days of the band, when his voice had changed quite a bit from the Icky Mettle period and he wasn't able to hit all of the notes from his younger days. I highly recommend this DVD to any fan of the band or even any fan of indie music. The short interviews between sections also give a bit of insight into the "old days" and provide a rare chance to see the members in an actual interview.

Do you like Archers of Loaf? Then you should own this film. Do you not like Archers of Loaf? Then how did you find this? It must be divine intervention and you are predestined to purchase this film and rethink your musical tastes, and possibly life in general. There's nothing to complain about here. It's a great snapshot of the greatest indie rock band of all time. Get it. Now.

A fine video & audio recording of one of their reunion shows at Cat's Cradle. Since it's one of it's kind, it's hard for a fan to not pass this up - either as a completist or someone who missed out on the amazingness that is/was Archers of Loaf. For what it's supposed to be - it's an immersive watch start to finish and the band member interviews are relevant to the their history as a band and their music.

The two knit-picks here would be not getting to see the show in it's entirety sans interviews and perhaps the lack of inclusion of other concert footage as a hard copy from past shows (but YouTube has 'em)
