Editorial Reviews

The Only Live DVD from the Quintessential L.A. Punk Band!

The musical history of Los Angeles can be divided into two distinct eras: "Before X" and "After X." X was one of the first U.S. punk bands, but by adding rockabilly and country elements, they became a major influence on the Americana/alt-country movement of the last 15 years, not to mention subsequent waves of punk bands.

X: Live In Los Angeles commemorates the 25th anniversary of the band’s landmark debut album, Los Angeles. With this DVD, the original lineup comes together once again to celebrate this milestone with a killer 21-song set of fan favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars A blistering live set May 13, 2005
Format:DVD
This is exactly how a concert DVD should be done. Tons of cudos to the editors and director of "X Live in Los Angeles". Thank you for just showing this amazing live performace, of one of Los Angeles greatests bands. Not .5 seconds rapid fire editing that would make someone sick to their stomach, just simple edits that emphises the music. When Billy Zoom does a solo the camera is actually on......Billy Zoom. Now to the performance. Basically, X still has it, in spades. The song selection is good, John Doe sounds as great as ever and the band is smoking.

I have seen X do faster paced sets in my day but this one is very good. Although the DVD is excellent, the best way to experience this show is to get as many people as you can into your living room, turn the heater onto around 100 degrees and blast this sucker. Now we're living.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old punks still rule... November 8, 2005
Format:DVD
I must admit I was hesitant to purchase this DVD. A classic punk band performing twenty plus years later, what could one expect? Apparently, one can expect a hell of a lot. These guys and gal can still tear their songs apart.

It's well filmed; there isn't that MTV, rapid editing that can cause seizures. The audio is excellent; you can actually understand the lyrics. It's well mixed. It's far superior to a lot of live performance DVD's currently released by some bands. X released a product that is worthy of ones money.

If you like X; you'll love this DVD. If you just appreciate a good rock/punk concert, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars That Billy Zoom Smile ;) August 13, 2005
Format:DVD
It is an excellent experience to watch this DVD after all these years of being an X fan. It was also very cool to watch this right after a repeated viewing of the DVD X--The Unheard Music (1985). X still has every ounce of energy and connection it had back then. The only reason I gave it four stars is that John Doe's Bass is overshadowed in the mix. But having said that, it is a DVD I will treasure for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't be better August 6, 2005
Format:DVD
I have a thing against purchasing live DVDs. After all, how many times do you want to sit and watch a gig that you probably weren't even there for in the first place?

But as a dedicated X fan, I couldn't resist checking this out, and I'm thrilled that I did. This is the band in top-notch form.

It's encouraging that people who weren't around L.A. during X's heyday are finally clueing in to how historically important they were, and still are. And this DVD proves they're still as vital and viable as ever.

Do yourself a favor. If you've wandered to this page, there must be a reason. Don't leave without purchasing this DVD. You'll be glad you did, whether you're a diehard fan like myself, or a fan of music who is simply curious. All hail X, and may they continue to make music together for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Penny May 18, 2005
Format:DVD
This DVD is unbelievable! If you are a fan of punk rock, you have to own this DVD. They play all of their classic songs and the bonus footage is amazing. I think my favorite part is when they play "White Girl." X has been around for a long time and this is their first live concert DVD, so it makes it even more awesome. And the liner notes by Flea of The Red Hot Chili Peppers are really cool too. Definitely buy this DVD! It's worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars X hasn't lost a step May 13, 2005
Format:DVD
Just brought this DVD home, and it rocks. Those uninitiated to this great band don't know, but the fans understand, that this is a band that never disappoints live, and I can vouch for this having seen them 25+ times with and without Billy Zoom, solo, and in their Knitters incarnation. The cool thing about this DVD is that it does not feel nostalgic - unlike the recent Blasters DVD (also by the good folks at Shout!). The Blasters were and are a fine band, but one look at the audience on that DVD shows that the thrill is, if not gone, definitely waning. No so with X. Fans are still passionate, the playing and singing are still passionate, like the band still totally believes in what they are doing, and it shows. So, fans will love it, but can this win over some new fans? That's the question. If you love the band, this DVD is a must buy. For those of you with tangential interest, or who love other great bands like The Ramones, The Clash etc., or all of you on the east coast not too familiar with the band, take the plunge. This DVD rocks. Dare I ask....rock and roll hall of fame anyone????

5.0 out of 5 stars X have still got it December 3, 2010
Format:DVD
X is one of the best punk bands ever. I don't even like calling them a punk band, but that's what they call themselves so I guess it's OK. This is musically complex punk with a lot of influences and a lot of tight playing and gripping tunes.

This is an awesome concert. The only two problems are that 1) it is just 67 minutes long and 2) John Doe's bass is buried too deep in the mix.

Every X fan should get this. More importantly, anyone who doesn't know about X should get this.

Why X? Did you know, for example, that:
- X has a different sound based on the unique harmonies between co-lead singers Exene Cervenka and John Doe that really sets them apart from anything else out there?
- Doe, Cervenka and drummer DJ Bonebrake also play in the country punk band The Knitters?
- Billy Zoom, the guitarist who originally formed the band, used to play rockabilly guitar for Gene Vincent and other big stars, and has been voted one of the greatest guitar players ever by Guitar Player magazine?
- X were playing Leadbelly tunes way before Kurt Cobain?
- Ray Manzarek, keyboard player of The Doors, produced X's first four albums? This is one of the big reasons why the band covered and generally closed its concerts with "Soul Kitchen" from the album The Doors
- Cervenka and Doe used to be married, before Exene later married Viggo Mortensen -- Aragorn from the Lord of the Rings movies?
- Billy Zoom left the band from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s, but during this time the band still managed to record X Live at the Whisky a Go-Go, one of the greatest live rock albums ever, with guitarist Tony Gilkyson?
