Full video of Century concept Live is the gift release decision. This film audience the video was shot a “Quebec performances November 6, 1987” from the tour due to the “RADIO KAOS”. But not only you can witness the whole story of the valuable “RADIO KAOS tour” even, it is the definitive title that was recorded to a very rare “Another Brick Jam”.
Many Although Roger Waters is the concept live, in at even “RADIO KAOS tour” special that. Other concept Live has a “full reproduction part of the album”, but “fun part of the Greatest Hits” has been divided, in this tour, entertainment and story are fused. By album is fictional radio station “RADIO KAOS” motif, I was able to mix and nature of past hits in the story. That we can easily describe your synopsis of “RADIO KAOS” and ……
______________________________

And the popular DJ Jim radio station “RADIO KAOS”, the story by Billy boy with supernatural powers while a plant person. Billy, it is possible to communicate the radio radio waves in flesh and blood, out to superimpose communicates with DJ gym, the ESP will become more and more powerful. The story, World War II atomic bomb development project “Manhattan Project” in and President Reagan, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, et al., And while exchanging the time of politicians, are drawn nuclear threat. The late, ESP Billy becomes powerful enough to operate the super computer of government, and met with the world of confusion and controls the nuclear weapons, to greet the finale.
______________________________

Live also allowed to develop such a story, the album “RADIO KAOS” songs will be showcased. However, mere album rather than a reproduction, with the settings flowing there from the radio is in the past of the hit song is played. Concept album of the founder “SGT. PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND” is a technique that is reminiscent of, you are representing that tradition in the dimension of the concert. High show degree of perfection far, I think the only one in Roger career.
In fact, starting from the conversation by DJ and Billy of machine voices this work telling cayenne. A little, there is also a part of the screen shakes, but the angle overlooking from above the stage front crowd of shadow zero. Field of view that contains the stage panoramic view is a very spacious, we go one by one down the attractions. Roger themselves and Soroshin of each instrument, of course, because I do not miss even a part that choir sing, PINK FLOYD solo song is no doubt shooting enthusiasts who knows all.
If you become this way, with lots was directing the DJ and circular screen come alive wonderfully. Album “RADIO KAOS” was also a masterpiece, but it was also somewhat esoteric. However, it Hairikomeru to smoothly story by “THE WALL” developments become animation and news video is fed out. Of course, even the familiar image plenty in the past stations. how much excitement so when that “march of the hammer” is displayed!
Voice is also really great. That of course is clear tone can be taken to listen even subtle nuances of Roger, is amazing vividness of cheers heard together. And Shinsei PINK FLOYD and batting of Dave Gilmore, but is the tour that it is said that it was commercially crushing defeat, large cheers, great success such a story is like a lie you hear from this work. Moreover, while I feel a huge sense of scale, it does not interfere with the wonder and the musical tone. Or for position overlooking from above, it’s a feeling like covers over the musical tone on top of the large cheer. In “Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2”, only DJ too large uke is chanted the “Thank you, thank you”, I will no longer proceed in quite earlier.
Celebrated the peaceful denouement in the album as “The Tide Is Turning”, the main set Roger is set a guitar To most end. Angkor is revel in the “Breathe,” “Brain Damage / Eclipse” of the “madness”. Sound and video of this tour, most but here’s the end, this work is not done yet. Then, the camera but I turn licked the venue, to refer the customer electricity is attached, standing ovation in the hall is not Thomas sounds, do not go home everyone. The enthusiasm and eventually recall the band, to play a valuable “Another Brick Jam”. On extremely valuable, like Utaimakuru is in venue also overwhelming the scene. This is a must see!

Reproduction concert of concept album, even if the stomach is finished beautifully, previously seen visible Na plan harmony feeling is inherent. But “RADIO KAOS tour”, while representing a magnificent story, exception in the exception who will live the original thrill and fun also to taste to the full extent. This work, the terrible is not only seen in the eye, I precious live recording that can be felt fresh reaction at the time to direct.
2015 autumn, live movie of large concept of “THE WALL” in the century is about to be published. I think that definite winner many people that can not be suppressed impatient feeling, but precisely because it is time such, also had extremely degree of completion of different meaning I would like you to “RADIO KAOS tour” is also recalled. A masterpiece video for that, by all means.

ラジオ局「RADIO K.A.O.S.」の人気D.J.ジムと、植物人間でありながら超能力を持つ少年ビリーによる物語。ビリーは、生身でラジオ電波を交信でき、D.J.ジムと交信を重ねていくうち、その超能力はどんどん強力になっていく。物語は、第二次大戦中の原爆開発プロジェクト「マンハッタン計画」やレーガン大統領、サッチャー首相ら、当時の政治家を交えながら、核の脅威が描かれる。終盤には、ビリーの超能力は政府のスーパーコンピュータを操作できるほど強力になり、核兵器を制御して世界の混乱を収め、大団円を迎える。
______________________________

ライヴもこうしたストーリーを展開させ、アルバム「RADIO K.A.O.S.」全曲が披露されます。しかし、単なるアルバム再現ではなく、そこにラジオから流れる設定で過去のヒット曲が演奏されるのです。コンセプト・アルバムの始祖「SGT. PEPPER’S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND」を彷彿とさせる手法であり、その伝統をコンサートの次元で表現している。ここまで完成度の高いショウは、ロジャーのキャリアでも唯一無二ではないでしょうか。
実際、本作は開演を告げるDJとビリーのマシン・ヴォイスによる会話からスタート。少々、画面が揺れるパートもありますが、ステージ正面の上方から見下ろすアングルは観客の影ゼロ。ステージ全景を収めた視界は実に広々としており、見どころを逐一押さえていく。ロジャー自身や各楽器のソロシーンはもちろん、コーラス隊が歌うパートでさえ逃さないのですから、PINK FLOYDもソロ曲も総てを知り尽くしたマニアの撮影なのは間違いありません。
こうなってくると、D.J.や円形スクリーンをふんだんに使った演出が素晴らしく活きてくる。アルバム「RADIO K.A.O.S.」も傑作でしたが、やや難解でもありました。ところが、「THE WALL」の発展形となるアニメーションやニュース映像が繰り出されることですんなりとストーリーに入り込めるのです。もちろん、過去局にはお馴染みの映像もたっぷり。あの“金槌の行進”が映し出された際の盛り上がりようと言ったら!
音声もまた実に素晴らしい。ロジャーの繊細なニュアンスさえ聴き取れるクリアな楽音はもちろんのこと、一緒に聞こえる歓声の生々しさが凄い。デイヴ・ギルモアの新生PINK FLOYDとバッティングし、商業的に惨敗だったと言われるツアーですが、本作から聞こえる大歓声は、そんな話がウソのような大盛況。しかも、巨大なスケール感を感じさせながら、不思議と楽音を邪魔しない。上方から見下ろす位置のためか、大歓声の上に楽音が覆い被さるような感覚なのです。「Another Brick In The Wall Pt. 2」では、あまりの大ウケにD.J.が「Thank you, thank you」を連呼するばかりで、なかなか先に進めなくなってしまいます。
アルバム通り「The Tide Is Turning」でピースフルな大団円を迎え、ロジャーがギターを高々と掲げて本編セットは終了。アンコールは「狂気」の「Breathe」「Brain Damage/Eclipse」でお祭り騒ぎです。このツアーの音源・映像は、ほとんどがここで終焉なのですが、本作はまだ終わりません。その後、カメラは会場をなめ回すのですが、客電が付いているというのに、会場中のスタンディングオベーションは鳴り止まず、誰も帰ろうとしない。その熱狂は、ついにはバンドを呼び戻し、貴重な「Another Brick Jam」を演奏させるのです。極めて貴重な上に、会場中が歌いまくる様も圧倒的なシーン。これは必見です!

コンセプトアルバムの再現コンサートは、美しく完成されてはいても、先が見え見えな予定調和感も付きものです。ところが“RADIO K.A.O.S.ツアー”は、壮大なストーリーを表現しつつ、ライヴ本来のスリルや楽しさも存分に味わわせてくれる例外中の例外。本作は、その凄みを目で見られるだけでなく、当時の生々しい反応もダイレクトに感じられる貴重な生録なのです。
2015年秋、世紀の大コンセプト「THE WALL」のライヴ映画が公開されようとしています。はやる気持ちが抑えきれない方もさぞや多いと思いますが、そんな時だからこそ、また違った意味の完成度を極めていた“RADIO K.A.O.S.ツアー”も思い起こしていただきたい。そのための傑作映像を、ぜひ。
