A visual documentary of Einstuerzende Neubauten, the German underground band, by Japanese cult director Sogo Ishii, made during their 1985 tour of Japan. The band makes an elaborate and remarkably choreographed appearance in the ruins of an old ironworks (which was scheduled for demolition; footage of same was incorporated into the movie) and a brief appearance on stage.Written by

This nowadays rather unavailable piece of film is a great introduction and statement of the musical and visual artistry of Neubauten and their Japanese collaborate in the mid 80s. This ought to be made available shortly on DVD, if only the band, the director and the labels could find the sensibility to get along, and provide the growing number of fans a well deserved release. According to the band, their company (mute) don't find it a worthwhile investment (as they claimed in 1997-Quart Festival, Norway).
