Got this a few weeks ago myself (also the Fripp/Sylvian laserdisc) from
Possible Productions.   The video was originally shot for a Japanese
TV show.   Wierd video is from Director of the TV Show.   

What struck me as weird was Belew's guitars.  Saw KC twice 
(Warner june 95 DC as last summer at merriweather Post MD)
and Adrian had three Fender Custom Shop Strats both shows.
Yet in the Video he has just the one Strat and Plays a Les Paul
(one of Fripp's Tokai Les Paul copys?) and a Parker Fly.  He mentioned
in Guitar Player (June 95 KC feature) that he really likes the Fly
but would be using the Custom Shop Strats on Tour.  
Did some get lost or damaged in shipping?

    The Fripp Sylvian disc is much better.  The director was very good

Brook and
    Fripp at one point.   I had the Damage CD (same tour different
    and had a some Ideas as to who played what.  The video straighted
    out.  (I was right about 80% but was dead wrong on one solo that
    I was sure was Trey Gunn (just like something on the Third Star)
    to find Fripp playing it in the Video, oh well they both use
