USA TOUR 1991 (2014)

Jack Frost - USA Tour 1991 Video Cover

Description:

Consisting of 2 hours 55 mins worth of performances, interviews and general horsing around. Gathered from Jack Frost's (Kilbey from 'The Church' and Grant McLennan from 'The Go-Betweens') one and only US tour just after the release of their first album. Contains no nudity, but much bad language and drug references. Filmed and edited by Steve Kilbey.

From SK - Please be aware film quality is slightly grainy in a few small parts, it is 23 years old, sound quality is excellent. Many thanks to Donald Baldie, Scott Davidson and Sam Mayfair for helping me bring this project to fruition.

Notes:

Steve wrote about this video in his blog on Dec. 26, 2013 and upon its release on Jan. 2, 2014.
