  1. Enjoyment

    Enjoyment is the follow-up DVD release to indie band Kaiser Chiefs' highly successful debut album Employment, released on November 28, 2005. The main focus of the DVD is an approximately 90 minute documentary directed by Walpole-based artist Cally Collomon, with an unusual narration by Bill Nighy and over an hour of live footage shot from various points in the band's career, ranging from their time as indie band Parva to the 2005 tour of Employment. Fitting with the documentary theme of the DVD, there are bizarre segments between the footage featuring interviews with who are supposedly the younger and older selves of the bandmembers. Besides the documentary, the DVD also includes all the band's music videos up to 2005's "Modern Way", plus footage from their live performances at summer festivals and access to the official Kaiser Chiefs website.
