The Strange Case of Alice Cooper

Alice Cooper

Year: 1979

Runtime: 01:12:14

The Strange Case Of Alice Cooper is more than a concert film. It is the warped tale of one man's descent 'into madness, a theatrical rock 'n' roll spectacle that could only emerge from the twisted imagination of Alice Cooper.

Filmed during a stop on the Madhouse Rock Tour in 1979, Strange Case was inspired by Alice's stay in a New York sanitarium and the people he encountered there. Vincent Price introduces the proceedings as ghoulish doctors and transvestite nurses cross paths with dancing bottles of alcohol. All the while, Alice performs songs off his album From The Inside, as well as many of his most well-known and best-loved hits.

    Alice Cooper

    Year: 1972

    Runtime: 1 hr 38 min

    The original Rock ’n’ Roll Spectacle. The groundbreaking tour. The five original members of the Alice Cooper group captured live. The 1973 Billion Dollar Babies show was the first of its kind. No other band had ever brought a more expensive, elaborate theatrical production to the rock stage -- and rarely has any since.

    Alice Cooper

    Year: 2012

    Runtime: 1 hr 19 min

    Alice Cooper brings his new album Welcome 2 My Nightmare to the A V O SESSION BASEL. The star , who rightfully can call himself the world’s most easily identifiable music brand, brings his legendary and bombastic black rock show to the annual indoor festival in Basel, Switzerland. Alice Cooper shocked audiences with boa constrictors and guillotines, now he does it with spider costumes and horror masks, but the good old '70's rock has remained a constant. That’ s Alice Cooper’ s remedy for the irritations and confusions of our time: spectacular electric guitars, old school style. The
    shock rocker brings our dark side back to the stage. He lets others find happier alternatives.

  • Brutally Live

    Alice Cooper

    Year: 2000

    Runtime: 1 hr 36 min

    Shot in London during the 2000 world tour, Brutally Live showcases Alice Cooper doing what he's been doing better than anyone else over the past 25 years: turning a rock concert into a campy theatrical extravaganza. That he's old enough to be almost anyone in the audience's (grand?)father is quite beside the point. For Alice remains one of the few who knows that rock & roll should be fun, even if that means severed heads, gushing blood, and murdered babies. Even the fabled guillotine, from his heyday a quarter-century ago, makes an appearance. Alice also takes a shot at Marilyn Manson, Ozzy Osbourne, and Kiss by calling them "my undisciplined children."
    Alice and his band rip through 105 minutes of some of his best-known songs, including "I'm 18," "No More Mr. Nice Guy," "Only Women Bleed," and the immortal anthem "School's Out," along with newer tunes like "Brutal Planet" and "Gimme" (also seen as a bonus video). The concert will surely satisfy Cooper fans, if not win him new ones; the DVD itself is a winner, with bludgeoning DTS and Dolby 5.0 Surround Sound and the choice of alternate camera angles on six of the 25 songs.

On the second half of this Soundstage episode the sisters come back with a vengeance – blazing through songs like “Barracuda” and “Even it Up.” They then slow it down on the reflective “Dog and Butterfly” and “Alone.”

  • Live in Munich 1977

    Rainbow

    Year: 1976

    Runtime: 1 hr 53 min

    Rainbow was formed by Ritchie Blackmore in 1975 after he left Deep Purple at the height of their fame. They were instantly successful and released a string of hit albums, with an ever changing line-up, between 1975 and 1983 when Blackmore broke up the group to join the reformed Deep Purple. This concert from their European tour in 1977 features the line-up responsible for the Long Live RocknRoll album released later that year, including vocalist Ronnie James Dio and drummer Cozy Powell. Blackmore had to be smuggled out of Austria after a trouble with the police at a gig two nights earlier and was very late arriving in Munich, all of which seemed to inspire both the band and the audience to create a truly remarkable gig.

  • Rock for the Rising Sun

    Aerosmith

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 1 hr 34 min

    In March 2011 Japan was beset by a huge earthquake, a monstrous tsunami and the subsequent meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant. In the autumn of 2011, despite advice to the contrary, Aerosmith brought their "Back On The Road" tour to Japan, a country with which they'd always had a special relationship. The Japanese fans came out in their droves and Aerosmith responded with some of the finest gigs of their distinguished career. This film follows the band on that tour combining full length live tracks with behind the scenes footage which is at times touching and emotional and at others humorous and insightful. More than anything else it demonstrates the Japanese fans' love affair with Aerosmith and their music.

  • The Dance

    Fleetwood Mac

    Year: 1997

    Runtime: 1 hr 46 min

    The Dance finds Fleetwood Mac rekindling their late ‘70s magic on stage with mostly successful results. Old friends and sparring partners Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie harmonize and take turns in the spotlight, backed as before by the sturdy rhythm section of John McVie and Mick Fleetwood. Performing in a stripped-down format, the group reconsiders its past with a sense of perspective — Nicks in particular adds something new to signature songs like “Rhiannon” and “Landslide.” Buckingham acquits himself well on the always odd “Tusk” as well as such fresh tunes as the ferocious “My Little Demon” and the Appalachian-accented “Bleed to Love Her.” Christine McVie acts as a leavening force, rippling sweetly through “Say You Love Me” and gliding high on the new “Temporary One.” If there’s a centerpiece to this set, it’s Nicks’ “Silver Springs,” a devastating break-up ballad denied a spot on the Mac’s landmark Rumours album. The inevitable (but still welcome) “Don’t Stop” brings the set to a rousing conclusion.

  • Classic Albums: Paranoid

    Black Sabbath

    Year: 1969

    Runtime: 55 min

    The second album by Black Sabbath, released in 1970, has long attained classic status. Paranoid not only changed the face of rock music, but also defined the sound and style of heavy metal more than any other record in rock history. The result of a magic chemistry which had been discovered between four English musicians, it put Black Sabbath firmly on the road to world domination.

    This programme tells the story behind the writing, recording and success of the album. Despite vilification from the Christian and moral right and all the harsh criticism that the music press could hurl at them, Paranoid catapulted Sabbath into the rock stratosphere.

    Using exclusive interviews, musical demonstration, archive footage and a return to the multi-tracks with engineer Tom Allom, the film reveals how Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward created their frighteningly dark, heavy and ear-shatteringly loud sound.

    Additional comments from Phil Alexander (MOJO & Kerrang! editor), Geoff Barton (Classic Rock editor), Henry Rollins (writer/musician) and Jim Simpson (original manager) add insight to the creation of this all-time classic.

    Cheap Trick

    Runtime: 1 hr 26 min

    Studio releases never fully conveyed Cheap Trick’s muscle, but the band harnessed the raw energy of their live show with 1978’s At Budokan (Live). Recorded in Tokyo before 12,000 feverish fans, “Hello There” and “Lookout” are the dictionary definition of how live rock ’n’ roll should sound. A cover of “Ain’t That a Shame” highlights the band’s connection to a timeless tradition of teen-rock abandon, but “Surrender” and “I Want You to Want Me” are the gold coins that secured them their own space in the rock canon.
