"Road Eyes"
    #2928939 - 07/26/04 04:32 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

you know who you are :wink: ................ no nothing to do with the subject.... neil young fans :cool:.......... anybody seen this dvd "rust never sleeps"..... man i wanna see it sooo bad.. i got the cd and its a good ass concert.. but i must get the dvd........ sounds far out :crazy2: :stoned:

    "It relates to my career," Neil Young once said of the title Rust Never Sleeps. "The longer I keep going, the longer I have to fight this corrosion."

That simple statement explains more than a few entries on Neil's resume. Like his 1983 synth record Trans. Or the 1991 noise construct Arc. And, of course, Rust Never Sleeps, the bizarre, theatrical tour/movie/ album that serves as one of the most popular chapters in his musical history. "


"Of course, like a lot of art, it's hard to tell exactly what it all means. Rust's stage is decorated with giant road cases -- which are raised to reveal giant Fender amplifiers. The roadies are tiny hooded figures with glowing red eyes -- reportedly modelled after the Jawas in Star Wars -- who lurk and scurry around the stage in packs, emerging to position a huge microphone like they're planting the flag at Iwo Jima or whack an overgrown tuning fork on the stage. The soundmen have lab coats and coneheads. Announcements from Woodstock play between songs. The audience is outfitted in 3-D glasses. A comedic emcee emerges mid-show to deliver a monologue on rust. Another guy, clad in a yellow DEVO coverall, rappels down from the ceiling to crash the party, only to be overpowered and carted away by the "Road Eyes." Maybe some of it has a point -- something about the lingering echoes of the '60s, the impending invasion of punk, the overgrown adolescent playground of rock, and so on -- but mostly, it just seems like a bunch of self-indulgent lunacy that could easily swamp the average rock band.

Yeah, it's good. I don't know about the DVD, but I used to have the VHS way back when...

I think the best Neil Young rockumentary was Jim Jarmusch's, "Year of the Horse." I highly recommend it. :cool:
