Pink Floyd’s Delicate Sound of Thunder, the Grammy-nominated 1988 concert, is coming to digital for purchase and rental Dec. 1 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Restored, re-edited and remixed from the original film reels and master tapes, the concert release was filmed at the Nassau Coliseum (Long Island, N.Y.) and features David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright with an innovative mix of lighting and staging, balancing the then-new material and classic Pink Floyd songs.
Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets: Live at the Roundhouse, a film documenting a series of performances from the band of all-stars led by Pink Floyd’s drummer, will be available for purchase on 4K Ultra HD, HD and SD Digital on Oct. 27, and available for digital rental Nov. 10 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets: Live at the Roundhouse is a live recording taken from the band’s sold-out shows at the London venue in May 2019. The film revives both the hits from Pink Floyd’s earliest live shows, as well as songs never performed live by Floyd.
Nick Mason, Gary Kemp, Guy Pratt, Lee Harris and Dom Beken, known as Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, came together with the simple idea of playing early Pink Floyd — the songs pre-Dark Side of the Moon — that had not been given a live outing in decades. What started with a simple suggestion from Mason, “Why don’t we get a rehearsal room and play some things and see how we feel about it,” turned into the artist’s first live performances since 2005’s Live 8.
Recorded almost a year to the day from the band’s first live show together, Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets: Live at the Roundhouse features songs from the garage band attack of “Arnold Layne” and “Vegetable Man” to the psychedelic journeying of “Interstellar Overdrive” and the mellow, spacey Floyd of “Atom Heart Mother” and “Green is the Colour.”
Performing to a sold-out crowd of 10,000 diehard fans at the MidFlorida Amphitheater in Tampa during their 2019 Altimate Tour, Bush put on a 90-minute concert that was filmed in 4K UHD with 15 cameras to capture the show from every angle. Produced by award-winning producer Barry Summers of Rock Fuel Media, the concert features the band’s biggest hits including “Machinehead,” “Glycerine,” “Comedown,” “Swallowed,” “Everything Zen” and their newest hit song “Bullet Holes” from the John Wick 3 soundtrack.
The thriller Ladyworld, the horror title Verotika and the rock concert title Christian Death are coming on disc in March from MVD Entertainment Group and Cleopatra Entertainment.
Due March 13 on DVD plus CD is Christian Death, a rare live concert film of the band from 1990, featuring original band founder Rozz Williams on lead vocals with Eva O on vocals, Rikk Agnew on guitars, Casey Chaos on bass guitar and Vic (Cujo) on drums. Tracks include “Cavity-First Communion,” “Figurative Theater,” “Burnt Offerings,” “Do Do,” “Mysterium Iniquitis” and “Dream for Mother,” among others. The release includes a 12-page booklet.
In the mystery-thriller Ladyworld, coming on Blu-ray March 17, eight teenage girls become trapped in an endless birthday party after a massive (imaginary?) earthquake. The girls’ sanity and psyches dissolve as they run out of food and water. Eventually, they regress to their baser instincts, exploiting each other’s fears and insecurities.
Verotika, coming March 17 on in a package with Blu-ray, DVD and a bonus CD soundtrack, is a surreal and bloody horror anthology told in three tales culled from rock legend Glenn Danzig’s long-running comic imprint of the same name. The first segment tells the story of a woman with eyeballs for nipples who conjures a giant, murderous albino man-spider every time she falls asleep. In the second story, a disfigured dancer collects other women’s faces. The third and final segment is a take on the Elizabeth Bathory legend, about a countess who bathes in the blood of virgins in order to remain youthful. The trilogy is presented by a mysterious woman named Morella (Kayden Kross). The CD Soundtrack includes Danzig’s “Eyes Ripping Fire,” Ministry’s “Dancing Madly Backwards on a Sea of Air” and Jyrki 69’s “Close Your Eyes,” among others.
