The first-ever Henry Rollins Spoken Word DVD filmed entirely in Australia!
"I made my 26th trip to Australia for some talking shows. The first three dates were in Sydney. We rolled film on the performances and some post-show interviews as well. This DVD is what made the final cut. I always have a great time in this beautiful country and have recorded live albums here both with the band and on my own, but this is the first DVD effort. I hope you like it. Thanks for showing up." - Henry Rollins

An unhealthy chunk of this, as well as the Live in NYC DVD, are taken up with Rollins' account of his time spent on the Trans-Siberian Express, a bit that's really not all that funny, and drags on more than his stories about his infected hand and almost stoning a fisherman to death Down Under (where this DVD finds him). At least here though, you don't have to deal with the labored discussion of de-scenting spray from the NYC disc.
The earnest, intense rooftop commentaries seem kind of out of place as well.
That's not to say there's not some great stuff here. Bush bashing is always a joy with Hank. His musings on getting older are also a laugh. I really loved his "You really want my money son? MUG ME!" story. It's just that this, like Live at Luna Park (but for different reasons), could have been so much better.
