Past Videos of the Week
Early Industrial/Funk/Tribal freakout. Think Cabaret Voltaire meets A Certain Ratio.
This has got to be the most industrial thing I've ever seen... Also, Gustav's favorite band.
30 Frames a Second (Live 1997)
Total hypnotic rocker from Simple Minds' much underrated 1980 album Empires And Dance.
No Escape (1979)
The Cabs' creeptastic reimagining of the Seeds' classic.
Kraftwerk back in their cosmic days. Note the handmade electronic drums.
Spoon Live (1972)
Straight Kraut Freakin' - Now With Jugglers!
Brian Eno and Nitin Sawhney
Come freak out with the Godfather.
A Certain Ratio
Funky post-punk on Factory Records. If Ian Curtis knew how to dance.
Little-known Krautrock originators. If you watch this you'll probably break through.
Intense neo-psych video from rhythmic noise wunderkinds Black Dice. Hit the bong.
Come for the star shaped sunglasses, stay for Eno's knob twiddling goodness.
Moog Modular + Bongos = the perfect recipe to reach the cosmic infinity.
Live on Chorus TV 1979
Includes a rare early version of "A Forest," when it was still known as "At Night," which had completely different lyrics.
Making Plans for Nigel
Quintessential XTC single. You gotta love that break at 3:36: Steee-eee-ooooo! Steee-eee-ooooo!
Real Industrial, yo.
Nude (live 04-02-98)
Original live version from a decade ago, before they butchered it for their latest album In Rainbows. One of the best Radiohead songs ever! Total psych style.
Corrosion In The Pink Room
Rare, unreleased Floyd cut from their prime period. Nick Mason plays the inside of a piano, wigged out binson echorec style on the voices... crazy man!
