Diving thru the tube of you is probably accounting for 13% of my day while on tour as of late. Thank god for smart phones, right? These are just a few of the gems I've encountered while blissing out in the back of the bus.
1. Caetano Velosa, “Jokerman”
Best cover of a Dylan tune ever. He owns it.
2. Digital Underground, “No Nose Job”
This was my favorite group 'til I was like, well they still are. They got the message right!
3. Beluga Mariachi, “Mariachi Connecticut Serenades a Beluga Whale”
This is probably the best thing that could ever happen to a musician. Look how happy that beluga is!! I bet he tips. how did they get this gig???? Why hasn't my agent landed me this yet?!?!
4. Mark Gormley, “Without You”
Whoa bro. You gotta lock that down! I hope she comes around in the end and walks through the clouds with him.
5. Liquid Mountaineering
I think I continue to find my life's next goals on YouTube. THESE DUDES ARE SERIOUSLY RUNNING ON WATER!!! WTF?!?! I love science.
6. Talking Heads, “Once in a Lifetime”
Obviously this show is the best. So good. Amazing songwriting. Incredible performances. Unbelievable showmanship. When I first saw the whole movie I literally watched it 4 times in a row. And then again the next 3 consecutive days.
7. The Boredoms, Live at Primavera Sound 2006
I was at this show and it blew me away. It was my first boredoms show and one of my favorite live performances ever. Actually this band is my favorite band to see live. They're so creative.
8. Need New Body, “Brite tha Day”
Man I love this band. Another really great live band. We played with them in Rome once upon a time and it was so inspiring. Great players. I love the drumming in their songs.
9. Neneh Cherry, “Buffalo Stance”
Yo, that's my jam! Sucka! Shit that's it, I'm droppin a cover of this jam.
10. James Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince: on stage together!
Whaaaaaattt happened here??? Man, I wish I was at this show. Michael and Prince just so happen to be hangin out. No big deal. Oh hey, come on down and bust a move why don't ya. Sure thing Jimmy. Oh Prince?! Hey Santa Claus, gimme a piggy back ride down to the stage. Lemme hump this guitar for a minute. It's too hot in here too hot. And scream. And I'm out, but I'm gonna take this light pole with me. Whoa.
