Artist: STEWART, MARK
Title: ON/OFF: Mark Stewart (Pop Group to Maffia)
Format: DVD
Label: Monitor Pop Entertainment
Country: Germany
Price: $29.00
"Mark Stewart first made his presence felt as the front man for The Pop Group in the late 1970s. They were pioneers of the post-punk dance sound and had success with singles such as "She Is Beyond Good And Evil" and "We Are All Prostitutes." When the band split in 1980, Mark joined the emerging On U Sound crew as a part-time member of The New Age Steppers. He then went on to form his own band with Keith LeBlanc and Doug Wimbish, the rhythm section of the Sugar Hill Gang and guitarist Skip McDonald. With Adrian Sherwood and his production magic at the controls, The Maffia unleashed an awesome mix of styles that sounded like Bootsy Collins jamming over a bootleg Jah Shaka tape in an urban warzone. This incredible mix of funk, dub and electronic overload pre-empted techno and drum n bass by years. Mark Stewart, often copied, never bettered. This film retraces the singers steps and paths from the early days of The Pop Group right up to the present. Director Tøni Schifer, who followed Mark around for a full 3 years, has crafted a detailed, often intimate portrait of the artist, supplemented by interviews with, amongst others, Mark Stewart himself, Adrian Sherwood, Daniel Miller (Mute Records), Nick Cave, Mick Harvey, Doug Wimbish, Skip McDonald, Keith LeBlanc, Douglas Hart (The Jesus And Mary Chain), Fritz Catlin (23 Skidoo), Mike Watt (Minutemen, The Stooges), Gareth Sager (The Pop Group, Rip Rig And Panic), Dan Catsis (The Pop Group), John Waddington (The Pop Group) Janine Rainforth (Maximum Joy), Massive Attack, Keith Levine (Public Image Limited) and many others, plus never-seen live recordings and music clips. Film: 82 mins; bonus material: 70 mins. Director: Tøni Schifer; Format: DVD10; Audio language: English; Subtitles: German, English; Format: PAL + NTSC, 16:9, Color, Region 0; Sound: Stereo." - Monitor Pop Entertainment.

Title: Berlin Super 80 - Music Underground West Berlin 1978-1984
Format: DVD/CD/BOOK Box
Label: Monitor Pop Entertainment
Country: Germany
Price: $64.00
"Staggering package featuring a DVD, CD & 100-page book; three hours of music and video clips, including Malaria, Die Todliche Doris, Einsturzende, etc. Essential document of the early  80s German whatever-wave scene." - FE.   "A DVD-flashback of early 80s Berlin subculture, featuring output by virtuosos of the citys underground movie scene, who rediscovered Super 8 as an adequate outlet for their creative endeavours. Accompanied by a compilation of music, covering a huge range of styles and currents - from punk to ingenious dilettantes - this lavish package recalls the walled-in citys unique feel and lifestyle. By no means a nostalgic review of times long gone, this is, rather, an appraisal (with no claim to completeness) of a creative Berlin which to this day exerts its influence on German pop culture and beyond. Besides the DVD featuring 18 elaborately restored Super 8 films (running time: 120 minutes), the luxurious package also contains a CD compilation of Berlin bands from the period of 78-84, as well as a 100 page book with extensive material: lyrics by Dietrich Kuhlbrodt, Martin Schmitz, Rolf S. Wolkenstein, essays, background information, discographies and photo series plus interview with Wolfgang Müller (of Die Tödliche Doris)." - Monitor Pop.
