    Guys, does anyone have this DVD here on SH? I've been trying to find it but havent found any place that sells it online.

    If anyone here does have it, can you tell me where you got it?

    Many thanks!

    I wasn't aware that it had been released. The last I heard, there were funding issues having to do with music rights.

    I asked Andrew Sandoval about this figuring he would know something. His reply was the documentary only had limited festival licenses and will not be getting a commercial release. I would like to see it too.

    I'd like to add that a compilation of their demos is sorely needed. I'm sure many of the songs exist and are probably decently produced for being demos.

    cwiit: Thanks for asking Andy Sandoval, much appreciated. couldnt they release it without any music so they dont have the issue of music licences?

    I’ve seen the documentary and it’s very good. A shame it’s not getting a commercial release, hopefully one day.

    They could, but then 25 people would watch it.

    A music documentary without music rights is almost always a non-starter--even for very well-known artists.
