ATDI- One Armed Scissor
I really enjoyee Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds performance of 'There She Goes...'. Other than that I haven't seen any memorable performances.
one armed scissor
is the only one that springs to mind
May search on YouTube for the ATD-I performance, haven't seen it
Also, The Vines - Outtathaway is entertaining viewing!
earlier this year were really impressive.
ATDI - One armed Scissor
thank you youtube
also special mention to god is in the house by nick cave and the bad seeds.
I really like this one
Scott Walker. I remember hearing about this at the time, just having got into him, but not knowing he was doing 'different' stuff now. I think I was imagining Scott 4, live on telly.
this was the first one which came to mind
closely followed by Spiritualized - Broken Heart
Im glad we had it on replay, Battles wernt even that good
no mention of Spiritualized-Broken Heart?
its the sound of FUCKING ANGELS!
*likes Broken heart,I may go download some..
I mentioned it...
And it really is spectacularly good...
the darkness - i believe in a thing...
when they were on. it was pretty funny.
Devendra Banhart - Will Is My Friend
Jon SPencer Blues Explosion - Whatever He Played Standing On The Piano
Radiohead - National Anthem
jools looked like he was sniffing his own farts after they'd played.
Lack of Communication & It Came From Japan - beautiful...
James Dean Bradfield doing Small Black Flowers...
Salif Keita doing Fulon
Some others I can't remember.
it would be a real contender right?
also Joanna Newsom - the Book of Right On was good, so different to anything I'd heard for a long time.
I remember the Fugees on it one time and they were very good. Also Mark Morisson :D
and 'No Pussy Blues'
and davendra banhartt.
jules is an annoying little freak though and his boogie woogie 12 bar schlock is tired.
Manics on The Hootenanny 96. Perfect performance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DlKNVkU3DTA
Also the Foos in 97ish including the silliness on the opening jam.
swastika eyes is absolutely brilliant
i've got a couple of the later dvds and theres some fantastic performances on them. and fortunately jools barely features
doing "I Hang On Every Word You Say" on the same show that R.E.M. were on.
I'm not at all biased, oh no sirree...
anyone see it?
And Devendra Banhart when he was sat on the studio floor in the cape
Who played a bass with a cappo and did gospel. He was ACE.
And the lady who sang about horses.
but no. It was some irish lady and it was a very old folk song.
'This house is not for sale' was great.
doing emperor tomato ketchup tracks
spiritualized : broken heart
and jools played along on piano *shudder* and jon spencer climbed on top of jool's piano then jumped off shouting blues explosion. The look on jool's face...
Sugar Kane (in 92) was pretty good
just 'cos the sight of Stuart Murdoch singing this damning song about his ex-partner (who was of course Isobel Campbell and onstage with them at the time). If you knew this it was compellingly awkward television.
or Lady Madonna, with JOOLS joining.
Or when Arcade Fire played. They were shit, but Jools brilliantly closed their performance with: "ARCADE POWER!!!"
Both in terms of his smug presenting and his fuck-awful muso piano playing.
If they could just gag him and bound his hands behind his back before each show it'd improve 100%
as was Pulp - I Spy.
He's one of my heroes.
He's fantastic. He recognises decent music when he hears it. Just because he has no interest in horribly tuneless DiS music doesn't make him bad.
lol @ the 'fuck-awful muso piano playing' though. I can't stick Guns and Roses, but I'm not staggeringly stupid enough to call Slash a shit guitarist.
I was calling him "a fuck-awful muso". His piano is technically excellent but fuck-awful to listen to.
I've no interest in a lot of DiS music but I do value passion and excitement and raw energy. His music's basically very, very, very boring.
By 'raw energy', you no doubt mean grungey loud guitars and shouting and all that sort of childish nonsense?
That's all on the surface. If you can't appreciate the 'passion' behind rhythm and blues music then you're deaf and gay.
Particulalry when you guess entirely wrong? Most grungy loud guitar stuff and shouting is noise, not passion.
Don't try and second-guess people. It doesn't seem to be your strong point.
he's not that twit of e4.
eels -fresh feeling
yeah airbag too : u can see the whole room is completely knocked aback by what they've just witnessed.
ben folds five dancing on the piano during 'philosophy'
there's another performance that just flawed the room but i cant remember
Scott walker in 1995 also merits a mention as being one of the worst.
unless they had it in writing that Jools wouldn't play piano. Which seems a bit silly because he doesn't "force" himself upon bands. I think they just did it to make some (rather petulant) point.
Mark E Smith has gone up in my estimation!
doesn't he get royalties if it's reproduced?
Stop hating him because he's got genuine talent.
Alright, its talent that unfashionable people like your grandads and gradmas would appreciate, but its talent.
He knows he's too old to be 'cool', so he just runs around like a little paedophile, having fun with music, and for this, I think he is a fantastic person.
He does stuff which is fun for him to play for boring as fuck to watch/listen to which for me is the wrong approach entirely.
"Scott walker in 1995 also merits a mention as being one of the worst"
Been sniffing petrol again?
I thought they were pretty poor on Friday.
PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A REPLY TO YOU. x
who were disappointing on Friday's show.
They were woeful, though Blindness in parts was good - the 'medley' was just shockingly lame - OR have they been on again? I never bother with music telly anymore you see.
I once did some corporate catering when I was at Uni serving on tables at a posh function and Holland was there with his band and he got something like 30K for performing his bog standard boogie woogie. A truly repellent fellow.
but i thought they were pretty awesome!
I thought Battles were boring too
A S too many then in that case. whatever happened to 'battle' as well?
Not bothered about Battles. Is that ok?
because it was the moment I realised that they were really an excellent band.
I'd heard a lot about them and heard a few songs, but until I saw them perform they hadn't interested me.
around 96/97, including a young looking Josh Homme on backup guitar.
was rather fun from what i remember.
and Jon Spencer a couple of years back, screaming "COME ON JOOLS! GIVE IT TO ME, BABY!" directly into the smug one's gurning face.
Blue Flower - sure it shouldnt be on "Loud" DVD but cheers for putting them on anyways
i thought no-one would mention sigur ros. hoppipolla was brilliant.
that and arcade fire doing rebellion (lies) do it for me, more recent but gave me chills.
The Bluetones doing slight return......... joke! Nah One Armed Scissor by ATDI without doubt!
I saw Damien Rice perform "The Blower's Daughter" and thought it was fucking amazing.
I didnt remember who'd sung it and was checking the backs of CDs for a year afterwards trying to find the song in HMV.
Then i found it on O which was, admittidly great for a time. Then it blew up to much. I havnt touched it since it became a dinnerparty album for the middleclasses
it is still a pretty fucking amazing. Shame that we had the rash of singer-sonwriters putting us all off not long after this.
the hold steady, i think it was in the last series.
hasn't been mentioned yet...
