On December 1, 2006, a brand new start-up company Sico Productions will debut its first DVD release, "Before KISS".
Other bands have fan clubs but KISS has a loyal army of fans. This DVD shows the dedication of three such fans. Originally filmed back in 1999, three die-hard KISS fans set themselves on a six-month pre-"KISS"toric journey to visit as many places as possible in New York City that had to do with the band's old stomping grounds, includes interviews and more. They travel through New York City visiting such locations as Paul Stanley's childhood home, the loft on 23rd street and Electric Lady studios. Over 15 locations are on the DVD. They were also able to get inside some places, one of which, "The Daisy" (considered one of the key starting places for KISS in the early '70s), was burned down approximately two months after the filming back in 1999. To our knowledge nobody else has footage of the legendary location. The DVD contains interviews with fans that saw KISS back in the early '70s, along with collections of original KISS merchandise. There's even an interview with a lady that knew Paul before they made it big.
One of the key features of this DVD is the first KISS tour guide of New York. A simply designed tour guide within the DVD that is based on all of the locations that the three KISS fans went. The guide supplies the addresses of all the locations, so that you yourself can go ahead and set up your own kiss tour of New York.
The company has even released a promo video for the DVD. A move not usually done by new independent companies. You can find the promo on YouTube.com. Just search Before Kiss Promo.
The DVD will cost $14.99 plus shipping and will be exclusively available on Amazon.com for purchase starting on December 1. You can go to Amazon.com and search "Before KISS" DVD.
