This isitheiindependent critical review of Duran Duran onirecord, onifilm andiin concert.
Part of the New Romantic scene during the eighties, the band went on to achieve a string of massive hit singles and albums. They were the first MTV superstars, and their glamorous and influential videos brought the band to a worldwide audience, and commercial and critical success soon followed.
Drawing on rare live film from the archives, this powerful re-assessment of Duran Duran chronicles the band from the early days in the eighties and beyond. The DVD features interviews with Paul Berrow - the band's ex-manager, Dave Ambrose who first signed the band to EMI, and Mark Tinley - Duran Duran's sound engineer and tech during their recent tour, alongside a leading team of critics and musicologists, to provide penetrating insights into why the music worked so well, and why sometimes, it didn't.
With live footage of the band in concert, TV and radio archives, this is the ultimate critical guide to the work of a band whose influence is still felt today.
The soundtrack features highlights from "Hungry Like The Wolf," "Anyone Out There," "Planet Earth," "Girls On Film," "Save A Prayer," "Rio," "Union Of The Snake," "The Reflex," "Wild Boys," "View To A Kill," "Notorious" and "Ordinary World."
