A band that rocks more than they pop, Sterophonics still seem to have an uncanny knack at getting both right: well-written songs rife with hooks and energy and a singer whose Rod Stewart-esque voice can belt out a clever lyric and catchy melody line.

Live at V Festival 2008
Runtime: 23 minDescribed as "classic UK rock delivered with whiskey vocals," the band have been summarised as possessing a sound akin to the genres of alternative rock and "British traditional rock". They are one of the most successful Welsh rock acts. Upon their release of “Pull the Pin”, they became the eighth group to achieve five consecutive UK number one albums (after the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, ABBA, Genesis, Oasis, Blur and U2).
In this concert feature the band is taking over the Download Festival performing all the hits like “Dakota,” “Have A Nice Day,” “Just Looking,” and many more.

Teenage Cancer Trust
Runtime: 1 hr 4 minShot in HD in the Fall of 2007, this energizing concert features an incredible line up of classic and modern rock performances. Since 2002 Roger Daltrey, a patron of the Teen Cancer Trust, has been masterminding these annual week-long concerts at The Royal Albert Hall in London, and they have fast become one of the most anticipated events of the British Music calendar.
Live at the O2
Runtime: 1 hr 48 minFilmed in high definition at London’s renowned O2 Arena on December 15th, 2011. The show came on the back of the band’s No.1 album “Velociraptor!” and the setlist combines tracks from that album with hits and classic album tracks from across their career so far. The concert was part of a sold out arena tour that covered the UK and Ireland at the end of last year. Kasabian are the recipients of numerous awards for “Best Live Band” and “Best British Band” in recent years and this new show with its spectacular and innovative staging will be a must have for their huge and dedicated fanbase.
No Distance Left to Run
Runtime: 1 hr 42 minFilmed throughout the band's 2009 rehearsals and acclaimed summer tour, No Distance Left To Run finds all four members of Blur together for the first time in nine years. With previously unseen archive material alongside new interviews and reportage, the film recounts the highs and lows of a very British band from the late '80s to their headline return at Glastonbury and Hyde Park. The result is a musing on Englishness and identity and a portrait of friendship and resolution.
Live at The Metro Theatre
Runtime: 1 hr 15 minJet is a rock band from Melbourne, Australia composed of Cameron Muncey, Mark Wilson, and brothers Nic and Chris Cester. Here they perform at The Metro Theatre, in Sydney, Australia, on December 18th, 2009.
Live at The Royal Albert Hall
Runtime: 1 hr 55 minAs the leader of the Jam, Paul Weller fronted the most popular British band of the punk era, influencing legions of English rockers ranging from his mod revival contemporaries to the Smiths in the '80s and Oasis in the '90s. During the final days of the Jam, he developed a fascination with Motown and soul, which led him to form the sophisti-pop group the Style Council in 1983. As the Style Council's career progressed, Weller's interest in soul developed into an infatuation with jazz-pop and house music, which eventually led to gradual erosion of his audience.
Love is Here: Live
Runtime: 1 hr 17 minSome would say that Starsailor are Chorley's biggest contribution to modern culture since the opening of the nearby Charnock Richard M6 motorway services in the 1960s. Like the aforementioned favourite resting point for Blackpool day-trippers Love Is Here (Live), will become a solid, long-stay favourite for fans. Recorded in November 2001, one month after the release of their debut album and while they were still being lauded as "the next big thing", the main feature is a live run through of the album. New composition "Some of Us" and the B-side "From a Whisper to a Scream" are also performed, along with versions of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" and Elton John's "Rocket Man". The concert footage and the audio (Dolby 5.1) are of a high quality, and breakthrough tracks "Poor Misguided Fool" and "Alcoholic" sound stunning. The show is hampered, though, by the limited material the guys can draw upon, and Walsh's repetitive melancholic delivery of existing songs. What does become apparent is that after a couple more albums and a little more musical experimentation Starsailor are on course to be live giants.
A Home Movie
Runtime: 1 hr 19 minBritpop rockers Supergrass collects 17 of their videos as well as the 80-minute documentary A Home Movie on this film from EMI and Parlophone. With hits from the band's first four albums represented on the disc, the videos cover their early rocket-rise to stardom with such cuts as "Alright" and go all the way through their contagious 2002 hit "Grace." The documentary contains interviews with the band and features home movies from various tours and recording sessions dating back even before the band had properly formed. Filled with the kind of off-the-wall humor and style that has surrounded their work for the first ten years, the film is a must for Supergrass fans and collectors alike.
In Session: 2008
