Just as Bush have finally confirmed the end of co-founder member Nigel Pulsford's ten year tenure in the band, SPV have announced the release of '1994 // 1999', a DVD containing not only ten videos of the band's best groundbreaking hits, but also their entire riveting live set at Woodstock in 1999, along with several additional special features. This is, quite simply, an 'audio visual best of' of the band between 1994 and 1999.
The band (Gavin Rossdale - Vocals & Guitar, Migel Pulsford - Guitar, Dave Parsons - Bass, & Robin Goodridge - Drums) initially formed in 1992 and spent two years demoing songs while gigging around London pubs as Future Primitive.
Their break came when Rob Kahane, President of the LA-based Trauma Records, heard their demo and offered them a two album deal. They renamed themselves Bush and their debut album, 'Sixteen Stone', was released in 1994. The album opener, 'Everything Zen', was put on heavy rotation by the influential LA radio station K-ROQ and the band headed off to the States in January 1995. They never looked back.
America loved the power and intensity of tracks like 'Everything Zen', 'Comedown', and 'Little Things', with lyrics of disaffection and loss shrouded in rousing guitar drenched choruses. Bush played 230 US gigs in 15 months while 'Sixteen Stone' sold over 8 million copies, peaking at number 4 in the Billboard album chart. The follow-up, 'Razorblade Suitcase', entered the top of the chart in 1997, as did 'The Science Of Things' in 1999.
Captured on this DVD, along with all the band's hits over this seminal five year period, is the whole of their live appearance at the legendary 1999 Woodstock Festival, plus behind the scenes special features, focussing on the making of 'The Science Of Things', the video of 'The Chemicals Between Us' and 'Alleys and Motorways' - excerpts from the movie.
'1994 // 1999' chronicles Bush at their peak and most visceral and is a 'must have' purchase for all fans of soaring, melodic hard rock mainstream music.
