    Re: Music Videos ...

    The Doors - Wild Child 

    Not a music video; a clip of the studio session. Couple minutes amusing screwing around, then my favorite take.  

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-gpTJALpMw

     

     

     

    I don't like the singer at all, but Slash demonstrating mastery of Hey Joe:  

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HydDMhbgBYA

    Slash rules. Amen.

     

     

     

    (That said, I can't decide whether I like Hendrix's Voodo Chile more than SRV, 1983 Austin Texas - redefining "smoking". Blistering blues-rock brilliance.)

     

     

     

    Alice in Chains, Rio '93. Wish they cleaned it up and put it out on DVD. Layne had a sore/f'd throat, but used it to his advantage. Sound isn't that great, but the feeling is there.

    Stone Temple Pilots '94. No no, give me a chance here. This was before he took too many drugs to sing well. Transcendant voice, imo, in this one particular take.

    Such strange little quirks can make a voice.

     

     

    Alice in Chains, '94 "Rotten Apple". Poor sound quality. Layne just started sliding back into smack. BUT, I think this demonstrates - perhaps only for dedicated AIC fans, but there you have it - demonstrates beauty in its fall. That uncanny sound, the sick richness, ghoulish and simultaneously uplifting, the first and second time he sings "what I can see is unreal, I've written my own part..." and the wavering "hey, ninaah" placeholders...    and of course the eerie sound to the the rest of the music is way better than what ended up on the album, imo...

    Mad Season, Live and the Moore 1995. This is available on DVD now, as is the rest of the concert. Layne can sing.

    I could not agree more on Alice in Chains. That band was probably light years away from many other so-called Grunge bands. Their sound with Staley was unique, as was their ability to move in- between heavy and soft rock.  I was lucky enough to see them live right before the Unplugged session, and they sounded great.  

    I wonder how good they might have become had Staley stayed clean. Their last studio album, Jar of Flies, was their best by far imo, and gave us an inkling of just how far they had come as songwriters and performers. I give Cantrell props for going on, and doing what he loves,  but Staley was the voice of that band, his sound, instantly recognizable, and you just cannot replace that with a new singer. 

    Drugs suck, and anyone who tells you that they make you a more creative, better musician is just fooling themsevles.

    Re: Music Videos ...

    My recent favourites:

    The Youth - it's not really a video, it's more of a promo.  They are a killer (proper) r&b band from Copenhagen.  All can play, all can sing, all (great IMO) original songs...and this little promo perfectly captures what their live shows are like:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oaHhBCY55Hk

    The Ricky C Quartet - Not a punk band, not a garage band, not a pub rock band....a bit of a hybrid.  I'm probably biased because they're mates of mine, but I love the lo-fi silliness of it:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mr4h55vBg3Q

    The Jackets - This isn't new, but it's new to me.  The Jackets have become a top favourite band of mine overnight.....the singer, Jackie, is a brilliant performer.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6qZeIBFlM4

    All time favourites:

    Rolling Stones - best Rice Krispies American tv commercial ever:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nZBmhEMFdl0

    "Some new lot from Leighton Buzzard" - So sad most performers can't have a laugh like this anymore:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2t228rxfVlk

    Los Shakers - Obviously, unashamedly, totally derivative of the greatest band ever....but in 1965 Uruguay these guys came up with a song that would have been a strong track by the Beatles and video that made "Hard Day's Night" proud:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6VqPh9vP74

    The Eels - Genius:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5X5Dlkpdi3E

    Thee Spivs - I love hi-tempo, joyful, primitive music, surreality and the late, great, much lamented Spivs:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62h0BLD3DKI
