NOTES:
DVD shrink-wrapped in card sleeve. This was available free-of-charge direct from the Matador Records webshop with any other purchase (NOT just The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion albums as the rear sleeve states) or shrink-wrapped to copies of Plastic Fang.

The running order listed on rear sleeve is different to the one on the DVD menu and when ‘Play All’ is selected they are played in a third alternate order AND there are segments which can only be viewed using this option. The Jon Spencer dressed as Father Christmas footage only appears using ‘Play All’.

The DVD features 2 Kindsa Love / Flavor / Attack Live from Tower Records Store [Rooftop gig], Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan on 10 October 1998 (this was a free show with tickets inserted into copies of Acme, footage also featured on Emergency Call From Japan).

The Canadian TV appearance features Judah Bauer and Russell Simins playing guitar with Jon Spencer ad-libbing vocals and stating that the first 50 people to turn-up at that nights show with a box of donuts will get in free. Is he serious? “as serious as cancer” apparently.

The final video is an edited performance from a French TV show. The original perfomance lasts approximate 10 minutes and begins with High Gear which is closely followed by Talk About The Blues. The footage on this DVD begins part way through the second song and shows Jon Spencer running around the studio/through the audience.
