We went on an expedition into the depths of Tuxedomoon's musical catalogue, digging around until we found gold: "Unearthed"

Originally part of the landmark "77o7" boxset, this CD+DVD, available for the first time in its own right, documents vital & out of the ordinary moments in the group's 30 year plus history. Two discs are joined together in an alchemy of sound and vision.

The CD "Lost Cords" is a collection of unusual performances assembled to give a wide overview of the diverse paths Tuxedomoon has forged in the three decades since its humble beginnings. Chosen more often to fit that criterion than any other, these recordings run the gamut from totally obscure one-time live performances to demos of songs pursued or not.

The DVD "Found Films" is indeed that, a compilation of images/performances excavated from various sources that helped to define Tuxedomoon as one of the preeminent art-rock groups. Included is the stunning "Ghost Sonata", the band's "opera without words", the collection of nine music videos entitled "1000 Lives by Picture" , "Mythical Puzzle" a travelogue documenting the Tuxedomoon experience in 1988, "Jet Wave" an intimate look at a multimedia loft jam in 1980, the earliest recorded films of the group in the studio entitled "Colorado Suite" and finally to add diamonds to the gold, a video for "No Tears" chronicling 30 years of Tuxedomoon history in images and film.

You may experience the fruit of our expedition yourself by adding the gems presented here to your multimedia library.
