KIX Can’t Stop The Show: The Return Of KIX – A Documentary.

Written by John Deaux

Kix have been in the music industry for 35 years & this DVD is a fantastic way to celebrate new material from Kix in almost 20 years.

KIX Can’t Stop The Show: The Return Of KIX – A Documentary is a 70 minute movie that informs the viewer the reasons behind recording new material & also shows great behind the scenes footage recording the album Rock Your Face Off.
Kix Band

Featuring interviews with Shannon Larkin (Godsmack), ‘Lzzy Hale (Halestorm), Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme) & Chip Z’ Nuff (Enuff Z’ Nuff) along with others adding their testimony of what Kix means to them. The movie itself is beautifully put together, extremely informative & entertaining.

The bonus features are tremendous. Extended interviews with Lzzy Hale & Nuno Bettencourt are brilliant just a shame there was only a snippet of these used in the main movie. Watching the added extra of Steve Whitman (vocalist) & his onstage raps re-enforces why he’s been the front of this band since it’s inception. The guy is incredibly down to earth & genuinely funny.

Other extras includes full live videos of :- Can’t Stop The Show, Love Me With Your Top Down, Mean Miss Adventure & You’re Gone.

The booklet itself features more of the bands humor with cartoons, recipes & even Steve Whitemans’ fitness regiment. Just brilliant.

Another added bonus is the CD portion of this release. Tracks are recorded over a 3 year period while the band have been on the road & all previously unreleased.  Audience participation is present but during the songs themselves the audience is low in the mix so not to detract from the music. A great live recording as well as an excellent representation of what the band is like live.

Overall, the entire package is superb & the fact that it’s in a standard jewel case makes it real easy to fit onto the CD shelves.

This how ROCKumentaries should be done.
