JK LOL, a truly blessed time to you and yours in this most special of seasons. OK, that just sounded sarcastic. Maybe I'm a bit bitter since this is the first Christmas I've EVER had to spend away from family and friends. But come to think of it, given my family, this might be a good thing. At least I'll be able to watch Lee Han Joo perform tonight. I guess he's a good replacement for the obligatory weird uncle in every family.
Regardless, it's true that these videos here are, technically speaking, lo-fi lumps of coal. On the left is a wild TV performance from Jagatara. I'm not really sure what's going on, but I do know that the punk rocker who seizes the mic and screams is none other than Sakevi of GISM fame. At first it seems like he's just rushing the stage, but the backup singers don't miss a beat so it's not really clear for a while whether the chaos is intentional. Definitely the sort of stage presence that deserves lo-fi tape quality though. On the right is a 1986 performance from German thrashers Kreator.
Next thursday look out for an mp3 laden scene report on Richmond, Virginia! But for now, more coal - a public access set with weird graphics from Government Issue, and trashed out footage of a No Comment set at Gilman Street.
