Just found this. Blanche, at the Masonic Temple, 1999, with me on bass.
While I’ve got a VHS tape of this somewhere, embedding this fits in with my lack of VHS to digital encoder situation. The tape, however, has the funny interview that this is missing. Really happy with my bass sound here!
In the right background, in the jpg capture frame you see, under Daphne’s arm, is my 1972 Fender Stratocaster. On the left is Peter Hudson with his Gibson Firebird. I’m way over on the right. You can’t miss me, I start the song.
The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.
still listening to 5-8-6 to get to sleep
brilliantly artificial which has always appealed to me
they got completely away from the machine like early 80s sound after this; low-life and what followed… brotherhood had very little mechanical sounding work in it.
I first became aware of this phenomenon on youtube while looking for versions of Metric Help I’m Alive.
There’s a point in every one that’s worth watching where everyone, well, jumps. For joy. It’s a chance to be in a moment.
I’ve gotten back into them again looking for “Punk Rocker” by Teddy Bears on youtube. Fine, Sony has pulled everything. There are these killer cell phone videos of them playing amazing shows with different singers. Aimee Echo, Santi White. Fantastic.
Metric: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iflyv60mIo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3YuU8r2054 (not a cell phone vid but superb KCRW). I can’t listen to NPR anymore, but amazing upload (get it while you can kids).
Same I think for all cell phone vids. Ephemeral experience available for a while. Reminds me of mp3.com in 1998. Seemed like it would last forever. Live joy, jumping into your screen. Better than the official video. Listen for the people singing along and feel it.
