Synopsis by Mark Deming
With their thoughtful folk rock sound and lyrics that meld the political and the personal, 10,000 Maniacs became one of the leading alternative rock bands of the '80s and '90s. This home video (compiled by the group's former lead singer, Natalie Merchant) combines videos, home movies, early live recordings, rare television appearances, and a documentary film of the band recording Blind Man's Zoo to chart the band's history in both sounds and images. Songs performed include "Hey Jack Kerouac," "Eat for Two," "What's the Matter Here," "Don't Talk," "My Mother the War," and 12 others.
