Murphy’s Law – Up With Us… Down With Them (Concert)


Picture: C     Sound: B-     Extras: C     Concert: C+



Murphy’s Law means that anything that can go wrong will and the hardcore Punk band that dares to name itself this way is courting trouble.  They are not bad and their new concert DVD Up With Us… Down With Them was shot in two different locales with similar results.  The titles are the usual ones about drinking, anger, discontent and dumb fun.   You can tell they are a current such band form their dress, confined angry attitude and lack of politics; as the lyrics never realize the title.


If you like this era of this kind of music, then you’ll want to check out the disc, but know the 1.33 X 1 videotaped image is soft and has all kinds of detail limits, troubled color and other flaws.  On the other hand, the PCM 2.0 16Bit/48kHz Stereo is nice, rich and rough the way it should be for this genre.  The only extra is a few bonus tracks, but that’s it otherwise.  Well, not as much went wrong as expected.
