THE UNHEARD MUSIC: SILVER EDITION (ANGEL CITY)
NOT RATED/ FSK UNGEPRÜFT: The classic film on X, now back in print with bonus features! X: The Unheard Music takes long, detailed, and often funny look at the LA music scene of the late 70s and 80s and focuses on the group that critics had singled out as the leader of the underground pack.
The Unheard Music is a documentary that combines live footage of the band and interviews with the four members (as well as their friends and families) with surreal music videos and montages of newsreel footage and vintage television commercials which help to illustrate X's uphill struggle against the music industry.
Their story rings true even today. Bonus interviews and more. Bonus Materials: Interviews with the filmmakers/ Commentary track/ 'Some Other Time' video/ Original trailer.

Rarely do films capture or convey the spirit and edge of the best rock roll. This one does." -Jim Sullivan, Boston Globe "Offers fascinating glimpses into X's personal mythology, home lives, rehearsal process and eclectic musical background with exciting performance footage and inventive visual effects." -Patrick Goldstein, LA Times
