From Coalinga To Osaka -- Live in Japan 1995
Beautifully shot on three cameras during Faxed Head's improbable 1995 tour of Japan, From Coalinga To Osaka documents the pride of Coalinga, CA in all their self-handicapped, brain-damaged glory. Live footage of the self-proclaimed "desk metal" quartet is interspersed with baffling but authentic footage of a Japanese junior high school class in which the students are being instructed on the subject of... Faxed Head! In addition to the electronics- and mayhem-heavy 1995 Osaka set, the DVD includes bonus live footage of a reconstituted (and much more metal-sounding) Faxed Head on tour in Canada in 2001. And, for the true fan, a 45-minute long hidden "Easter egg" showcases an entire concert by Faxed Head's long-time nemesis, pitiful Coalinga-area boogie-blues idiots The Bon Larvis Band.
This strange and wonderful DVD is a surefire seller to fans of Mr. Bungle, Neil Hamburger, and Caroliner…all acts that Faxed Head has long been associated with, for reasons that are not clear. Faxed Head's devoted fan-base remains hungry for product, as health problems have prevented the band from any activity since 2001's Chiropractic CD.
