Available for the first time ever in any format, this DVD features extremely rare archive footage of cult legends The Violent Femmes.

Formed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1980 singer/guitarist Gordon Gano, bassist Brian Ritchie and percussionist Victor DeLorenzo are quite rightly regarded as the Godfathers of Folk-Punk.

On of the rare American cult bands to achieve mainstream success, they have amassed six billboard chart albums and three top twenty hits.

Their eponymous debut album remained an essential item for record collectors and eventually achieved platinum sales status.

Despite splitting in the mid-eighties, The Violent Femmes ever popular, reforming in 1989 since when they have toured and recorded continually and have performed well over 2000 gigs to date.

This DVD features two full shows of the band performing at Manchester, England’s legendary Hacienda Club in September 1983 and June 1984.
