X "The Unheard Music" Silver Anniversary Special Edition- December 13, 2011

X "The Unheard Music" Silver Anniversary Special Edition, available on DVD and Blu-ray, December 13, 2011 is considered the punk-rock era's "Last Waltz", assembled with Scorsese-like care, showcasing the iconic L.A. band X, who changed the face of punk music with their original style.

X, formed in 1977 was among the first wave of American punk bands, with original members, vocalist Exene Cervenka, vocalist/bassist John Doe, guitarist Billy Zoom and drummer DJ Bonebrake.

Available for the first time in HD, the Silver Anniversary Edition includes a new film transfer, 5.1 sound mix, a 25th anniversary dialogue with Doe & Cervenka, an inside look into the making of the film with Angel City Productions (circa 1983), a raw outtake of a live performance of the song "Some Other Time"; the original theatrical trailer and a replica of the original souvenir song book:

"...we see the band at its peak in this legendary film, which took five years to make. As vital today as the day it was released 25 years ago, THE UNHEARD MUSIC - preserved by the Sundance Collection as a "seminal independent film" - provides an indelible record of underground America in the Age of Reagan.

"This innovative and unconventional film puts us inside the world of X using a striking, visionary style reflecting the uncompromising passion and raw energy of their music..."

Tracks include seventeen X classics from their first four albums, "Los Angeles", "Wild Gift", "Under the Big Black Sun" and "More Fun in the New World".
