More Info

"The first ever DVD to feature one of the most creative and enigmatic bands of the fondly remembered early-1980's Indie boom, Eyeless In Gaza.

Martyn Bates formed Eyeless In Gaza in 1980 as a duo with Peter Becker. Eager to explore musical territories that veered crazily from filmic ambience to rock and pop, industrial funk to avant-folk styles, the duo steered hungrily and rapidly through several albums that culminated in the reflective swan songs of Rust Red September and Back From the Rains, whilst chalking up along the way hundreds of concerts all over Europe and several best selling Independent Chart singles and albums. In February 1987, citing a need to explore fresh territories and musical configurations/situations, Eyeless In Gaza suspended activities, but after a six year hiatus the band reformed in 1993.

Early 2005 sees Eyeless attending to a flurry of varied and teeming activities, as befits a band who are set to celebrate their twenty-fifth year of activity. A 25th anniversary concert is proposed, and a series of anniversary' releases are being prepared for release on Cherry Red Records. These releases comprise an overview best of' Cd released No Noise combing a distillation of the Cherry Red recordings and the subsequent Ambivalent Scale label releases.

Saw You In Reminding Pictures is the duo's first DVD release and accompanies the other 25th Anniversary activity. The DVD includes footage of Eyeless performing at Le Havre in 1982 plus footage from a November 2004 gig in the Isle Of Wight. Also included are original promo videos for the Eyeless In Gaza singles 'Veil Like Calm' and 'New Risen'
