I don't care if there have been previous Refused topics, this should have it's own as the mere fact it's actually being released is a miracle.

(it's been a few days since it's been announced)


The DVD "Refused Are Fucking Dead" set for release!
[Tuesday, February 7th, 2006]

Refused are dead. They spent their last year in existence touring godforsaken hellholes scattered around the western world. This is their testament.

In 1997 Refused wrote and recorded their farewell record, the seminal "The shape of punk to come", hailed by many as an undisputed masterpiece of the genre.

Years of intensive touring were finally paying off some and yet within the band there brooded a feeling of bitter fatigue.
Weary and tired Refused dutifully put on a series of uninspired performances, grinding what little energy they still possessed down to nothing.

When the police officers finally forced their way through the crowd at their very last show with the intention to shut it down, it seemed a fitting end to a story of revolutionary romanticism and merry rebellion.

However, the band members felt liberated as well as conflicted by the intervention, far from the defiant emotions of their audience.

In this undaunted documentary, Refused guitarist Kristofer Steen retraces the steps of how punk rockís brave new sound forged itís way through the swamps and swill on their last campaign in Europe and America, rushing like mad dogs to meet with their inevitable doom.

Also includes exclusive live-footage from "The Shape Of Punk To Come" era!

I like the Shape of Punk to Come but I don't really care enough about the band to get a DVD by them.

Apparently it's more documentary than live footage or such. I'll find out soon enough.

Out of general curiosity, are the International Noise Conspiracy any good? I've never actually heard anything by them. I've heard TEXT though and they were pretty alright.

I really don't know. I'm sure I've heard some stuff before but can't remember any of it. I recall a friend who was (is?) really into Refused who wasn't such a fan.
