Insane how apt these words are, lo these 27 years later.

“Hands All Over”

Hands all over the Eastern border
You know what? I think we’re falling
From composure
Hands all over Western culture
Ruffling feathers and turning eagles into vultures
Got my arms around my baby brother
Put your hands away
You’re gonna kill your mother, kill your mother
And I love her

Hands all over the coastal waters
The crew men thank her
Then lay down their oily blanket
Hands all over the inland forest
In a striking motion trees fall down
Like dying soldiers

Hands all over the peasants daughter
She’s our bride
She’ll never make it out alive
Hands all over words I utter
Change them into what you want to
Like balls of clay
Put your hands away
You’re gonna kill your mother
And I love her

Words: Chris Cornell
Music: Kim Thayil

“Making this video was fun because we were in a steel foundry. And there was like a black cancer dust all over everything. We’re all gonna get cancer from it and die. So I hope you enjoy it. This will be the video that killed Soundgarden.”

Stumbled onto this awesome little video that mashes up footage of Sigue Sigue Sputnik live with scenes from Blade Runner. Genius interpretation of “Atari Baby.” Nice work Reborninoktober.

The Naked and Famous have put together a concert video from near the end of their 2 year tour to support Passive Me, Aggressive You. It’s AWESOME. I downloaded the 1080p version today and have it playing now. It’s VERY reminiscent of the show I saw in Indianapolis last spring. In fact, the show I saw was 3 days before the one in the video. This band is doing LOTS of things right as far as winning a fanbase and keeping people interested. They’ve taken a well-earned break and hopefully they’ll have an awesome follow-up album to show for it. In the meantime – ONE TEMPORARY ESCAPE.

Grimes on Fallon

On August 16, 2012, in Music, song, tech, by mugen

Grimes played on Jimmy Fallon Tuesday night. My stupid cable service caught maybe 20 seconds of the end of her performance of “Genesis,” but the InterWebz comes thru:

Grimes – Genesis Live from Carola Barbieri on Vimeo.

UPDATE (12/2014): Found it again on Vimeo! Awesome! Thanks SheIsNameless/Carola Barbieri!

UPDATE: NBC seems to take stuff down after a bit. Sad. They also seem to block video updates to YouTube. So if you didn’t see it before, you’re just f’d.

Here’s the audio from that Fallon show.

Next best thing: photos of the event at Stereogum.

Golly, she sure gets cuter every time I see her. Cool to see her rig and how she handles live performance.
