Mindless Self Indulgence

Metropolis/Uppity Cracker, 2007
The music of MSI really gains something when you see their manic live performance. Chock full of audience baiting, weird antics, and extremely amusing banter, OUR PAIN YOUR GAIN completely justifies MSI’s existence. Filmed over the course of three nights in New York, the band tears through thirty songs in just over an hour. The bonus features are actually quite nifty as well, consisting of both versions of the Jhonen Vasquez-produced “Shut Me Up” video, the “Straight to Video” vid, making-of featurettes for both, two fan videos, and some bonus silliness. MSI is usually a hit-or-miss proposition, but this package is all hit.
