The Moneen DVD: It All Started with a Red Stripe is the first official DVD released by Moneen, an Indie rock band based in Brampton, Ontario, Canada. It was released in Canada and the United States on May 13, 2008. The DVD has four different sections: a documentary, a live performance, tour diaries and music videos.[1][2]

The start to this may be the end to another[edit]

The Start to this May be the End to Another is a documentary about Moneen. The film mainly focuses on the pre-production process of The Red Tree album. The band moves into a house in Baltimore, Maryland, to work on pre-production with the producer Brian McTernan. The band struggles to develop demos to send to Vagrant Records in preparation for recording a new album. Video clips from the past are interspersed throughout the film to show how the band had developed until pre-production of The Red Tree. The film can also be watched with all the band members providing commentary.[3]

Live at The Mod Club[edit]

The second section of the DVD consists of a live performance by Moneen at The Mod Club Theatre in Toronto on May 10, 2007. Nine songs from the performance are included. Three songs from the performance are not included on the DVD, along with any talking that occurred between songs.

Tour diaries[edit]

There are two separate sections of tour journals: U.S. tour diaries and Canadian tour diaries. These videos were previously released on the Internet while Moneen was on these tours. The videos are not really diaries, but more just videos showing what the band does for fun on tour, and how they interact with fans.

Music videos[edit]

Five music videos are included on the DVD. Four of these videos had previously been in rotation at music television stations. The fifth video is a video made and directed by Kenny Bridges for "The Song I Swore to Never Sing".
