Springbok Nude Girls Live Videos!

Yes, such an inane sales pitch is enough to make any hardcore rocker want to weep. This is the Nude Girls we’re talking about. Still. There is a valid point lurking beneath the major label spin: the Springbok Nude Girls have never made a great album.

Say what? Yes, yes, everyone knows Surpass The Powers and Relaxzor were castrated by pre-millennial rock ‘n roll tension, but what about the raw power of 1995’s Neanderthal 1 or the modern rock panache of 1997’s Afterlifesatisfaction? Nope. While the latter pair certainly came close, they never quite nailed that bipolar brand of huge power ballad hooks and obstinate alt.rock experimentalism that made the Nude Girls one of the few live bands that both cool alternative kids and their Watershed-loving moms and dads could tune into.
All of which brings us back to just why their debut DVD, Live at the Astoria is such mesmerizing viewing. Shot at the UK album launch for their critically-acclaimed comeback album Peace Breaker on Sunday May 20 2007 at the Astoria Theatre, London, Live At The Astoria documents the Nudies rollicking through a kick-ass cocktail of eight new power jams and eleven anthems culled from the best of their back-catalogue.

Live At The Astoria captures an element of South Africa's greatest ever alternative rock band that their albums cannot, the pure unrefined raw energy that is Springbok Nude Girls” champions the press blurb for the alternative rockers definitive live DVD.
