Buy Critical Times: Fishbone's Henhouse Sessions on DVD.

This 90-minute documentary joins ska-metal band Fishbone in the studio for a bunch of noodling around. I saw Fishbone live once (at Lollapalooza III) and found them electrifying, but later discovered that their recordings lacked the same energy. This DVD fares about the same. Certain moments get the blood flowing, but 90 minutes is a lot to ask, unless you're already a die-hard Fishbone fan. Songs include: "Frayed Fucking Nerve Ending," "Last Dayz, Critical Times," "Premadawnutt," "Demon In Here," "In the Heat of Angrrr" and "Skank N' Go Nuts." Music Video Distributors has released the DVD.
