Here’s something I didn’t expect to see today (or ever). The new video for the Steve Malkmus and The Jicks song “Senator” features Jack Black as the Senator, snorting coke and kissing babies. Also, Gary Cole pops up doing his Gary Cole thing.
Here’s the video for Ty Segall’s “Goodbye Bread”, from this year’s album of the same name. The Matt Yoka-directed clip is pretty trippy and keeps zooming out at a big, hipster party. So take the trippiness and weigh that against whatever your tolerance of hipsters is.
If you know the folklore of my show, you know the story of Plastiq Passion. For those who don’t, here’s it in a nutshell…Plastiq Passion, sends me a CD, I loved it. I go to see them at a bar on Staten Island to see how they are live, they are scheduled at 10pm, by 2am they hadn’t gone on yet, same with Terrible Tim who was scheduled at 9pm. I am mortified that bands are treated this way.
Because of that, I start my own events on Staten Island, Plastiq Passion plays them, which leads to events in Jersey, they play those too. which leads to events in NYC, and they play those. They also play one of my anniversary shows with Dramarama and Girl in a Coma. I guess you can say they are the house band of Anything Anything. But they are more than that, they are hard working and one of the best unsigned bands this area has to offer. The first song i ever played by them on my show was the demo of “I Can’t Wait”, they since re-recorded it and have made a nifty new video for it…here it is…enjoy..
