Tenacious D has compiled its short-lived HBO series, music videos, short films, a 90-minute concert from London’s Brixton Academy and a tour documentary for the double-DVD set “The Masterworks.” The project will be released Sept. 9 by Epic.
The Brixton Academy show features such D favorites as “Wonderboy,” “Explosivo,” “Kielbasa,” “F*** Her Gently,” “Tribute” and “Rock Your Socks.” The DVD’s second disc will include videos and “making of” featurettes for “Wonderboy” and “Tribute,” TV appearances on “Mad TV” and “Crank Yankers” and in-studio footage.
For a true glimpse behind the scenes, “The Masterworks” also offers the 30-minute feature “On the Road With Tenacious D,” shot by Liam Lynch. “I toured with them for three months so I had like 60 hours of video of us playing ‘Grand Theft Auto,'” he says.
Lynch and Tenacious D’s Jack Black are hard at work on the script for a feature film, “Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny.” Lynch hopes shooting will get underway before the end of the year. In the meantime, Black will appear in the film “Envy” with Ben Stiller, due Aug. 22 in U.S. theaters.
