Hacienda Top Ten Video Visions 
Hacienda Top Ten Video Visions (in no order) as selected by The Video Dude (Claude Bessy) from Hacienda members' newsletter number 5:

Scorpio Rising ("warped and funny as hell") - Kenneth Anger
Mad Max saga ("another manifesto of style")
Bugs & Daffy ("one of America's contributions to world mythology")
Daredevil Drivers (Japanese action film - "this orgy of deranged car stunts actually delivers again and again")
25 Years in Space (Television footage - "gravity free splendour")
Shogun Assassin ("poetic ultra-violence for that very special moment. Guaranteed to hypnotize random audience elements. In Japan this portable holocaust was released as a childrens' movie." As recently featured in Kill Bill Volume 2)
Chinese Gods ("Bruce Lee meets Rocket Robin Hood")
Nick The Stripper - Birthday Party ("tastier than 99% of what's around")
Haysi Fantayzee ("honest-to-god music company souped up promo slice of video")
Psychic T.V. ("this 23 minute VHS tape was a one-off for the Final Academy evening. Whatever ones makes of the contents this particular video has single handedly attracted more attention and reactions than all the other music cassettes put together.")
