this gives me such goosebumps, it’s ridiculous! also makes me want to jump up & dance like a crazy. the concert was in 1987 & held in harare – you can buy the dvd at amazon (or take2 for the locals). the graceland clip is equally rad.
once in a while i discover a band whose album i want want want and all the music i can get my hands on gets listened to over and over (so far this year it was passion pit’s “manners”, that became hideously overplayed – last count it was over 100x for “moth’s wings” alone)
i love deer tick, i think i have listened to art isn’t real (city of sin) about 200,000 times. this is a cover of sean kingston’s song beautiful girls. i had heard some shitty tune of sean kingston’s on the radio and could not for the life of me get it out of my head. so for some reason i googled him (my answer to everything) and by way of the internet gods hey, presto, i found this little gem. oi, i love his voice.
The Frowning Clouds are so 60s and very fun. Lead vocalist Nick (a dead ringer for George Harrison) and his poncho-wielding counterpart Zack rotate between singing and rhythm guitar duties. The coarse vocals of Zack lend backbone to “Time Wastin’ Woman”, oozing with the sounds of the Stones’ early catalogue – via who the bloody hell are they?
i love emily haines’ voice!
