Description: “Compulsively watchable…in the style & tradition of INXS classics “Shaboo Shoobah” & “The Swing” this longform video “THE SWING & OTHER GREAT STORIES” demonstrates why INXS are so universally popular.
Eleven videos of the bands best material… Are deftly intercut by Wunderkind Director Richard Lowenstein, with documentary footage shot in Japan, interviews with each of the groups six members plus superb animation effects. The action falls on an outdoor stage in Sydney, Australia, then moves to a video shoot into Japan; it takes a viewer from the streets of London to a fishing boat in the Pacific… THE SWING & OTHER GREAT STORIES not only features Michael Hutchins, Andrew Farris, Kirk Pengilly, Tim Farriss, John Farriss and Gary Gary Beers-but also tennis star Pat Cash, Australian media personality Ian “Molly” Meldrum, Jonahan Coleman, Ian “Danno” Rogerson & Models bassist / singer James Freud. It is a package destined for today’s and tomorrow’s best seller list.”
A collection of contemporary classics from INXS. Music videos interspersed with documentary and interview footage at the duration of the program. “All The Voices” includes excerpts from the motion picture “Strikebound”
