Later... Louder with Jools Holland (DVD) [bygxtd] [tntvillage.org]
Later... Louder is combination of the most rock & roll moments from Jools Holland's late night BBC2 show, which offers the only slot currently on terrestrial TV for New and experimental music. Due to this, Later... Louder offers the cream of the indie and rock crop over the last 10 years. Beginning with Dave Grohl in fine form with the Foo Fighters, we then switch to his mates Queens of the Stone Age belting out "No One Knows". More spot-the-connection fun follows, as the Screaming Trees' 1996 performance of "All I Know" sees a young Josh Homme on lead guitar. These connections run pretty much all the way through the disc, which adds an interesting slant on how to create a DVD track listing.
With stand-out performances from the White Stripes, PJ Harvey and the Soundtrack of our Lives, Later... Louder also features the interviews from the original shows with such wide ranging talents as New Order and Courtney Love. This is a must for all those who are in need of a varied rock diet.

Later... Louder offers an accessible menu and has an innovative way to access the interviews on offer during a song: a double-bass icon that pops up during the performance. The visual aspect of the DVD is standard enough at 16:9, but you'll find yourself wishing that they had cranked up the Dolby Digital to offer surround sound, as the 2.0 stereo offers a little less oomph.

Welcome to the second Later DVD, a journey down rock from the dark side. Here’s a decade’s worth of rock and roll with a razor’s edge that takes you back to some of the West Coast torch bearers of the early 90s – step forward Alice in Chains, Screaming Trees, even the dark lords themselves, Metallica – and then plunges you into the heart of the new rock of The White Stripes, The Vines and The Hives. Not many of the bands are English and the immediate qualifications for inclusion include the possession of dark glasses or leather jackets, great drummers and the ability to throw shapes in the studio. In America they call this stuff modern rock. On Later these are the bands who’ve exploded out of their corner like a bomb, driven by angst or rage or the simple joys of making some noise.
