Nardwuar The Human Serviette:: Doot Doola Doot Doo... Doot Doo!

Oct 09, 2006

This is one comprehensive DVD. On a hung-over Sunday I overdosed on Nardwuar as I sat and watched hours of Nardwuar interviews—the DVD is a total of five and a half hours. As a non-Canadian native, I never had the pleasure of watching Nardwuar on his music channel; I only read his transcriptions in this lovely mag. But, Nardwuar is good at what he does. His interviewing and researching skills are immaculate. Despite his awkward demeanor, plaid overload wardrobe, and weasel-like voice, the man knows what he’s talking about. Interviewees can’t help but be impressed at how much he knows about music. A two-disc DVD, the first disc is a compilation of funny interviews with celebrities and politicians that his music channel put together. He literally interviews everybody from Destiny’s Child to GWAR. And he’s well versed in all of them. Some of the best parts are watching Nardwuar get beat up or thrown around by his interviewees who are annoyed with him. The best is when Henry Rollins told him he had bad breath. The second disc is the un-cut interviews—I watched Jello Biafra, Snoop Dogg, Michael Moore, and Ian MacKaye’s interviews. The Ian MacKaye one is very informative. After like three hours, I had to stop watching though. The “Doot Doo’s” got to my brain. Great DVD, highly entertaining, informative, and fun. –Jenny Moncayo (Alternative Tentacles, PO Box 419092, SF, CA 94141)
