More Video: Kinks Cover

Forgive me for almost not accepting the comment on the post below. It was from an anonymous sender, and was only a link, to a site called I went to check it out, expecting possible girl on girl musical action, and lo and behold it's a brand new acoustic performance from Kevin and B.P.! It appears to be from France, and B.P. has the new do, so it must have been on that last quick European jaunt, which would have put this on about the 12th, eleven days ago. They do a cover of the Kinks' "Days" as well as "Heimdalsgate...". Here's an mp3 rip of "Days", too:

Sesiones Live In Mexico City 11/11/06

Interesting to watch this now, knowing how full-blown the live shows would become on the Hissing Fauna tour. Don't watch this unless you've seen the incredible concert video of the Amsterdam 12/11/07 show over at Fabchannel first.

"Sessions" is/was broadcast Mondays in Mexico at 11:30PM and features a mix of American and Mexican alternative acts, and is hosted by Alejandro Franco. I downloaded this as a DVD from DimeADozen and spent some time converting it and uploading for Youtube. I was looking right now before posting for more info about Sesiones and was dumbfounded (because I had already googled them and looked through their videos and didn't see this) to see they had this video posted themselves at And amazingly, I don't think anybody else ever found it, either. It was posted four months ago at imeem, but as of this writing has only 12 views. I would have thrown in the towel and just embedded their video, but after watching them both, the sound quality on these is much better (192 kbps). And they're right here for your easy consumption, divided into tracks. But seriously, check out that Amsterdam video first if you haven't.

More Video and Audio

Fabchannel has an excellent pro-shot video of of Montreal's recent performance in Amsterdam (Dec. 11), including performances of "The Past Is A Grotesque Animal", "Wraith Pinned To The Mist...", and "Softcore". CHECK IT OUT Audio rip courtesy Graham can be found HERE

Also, if you use the DimeADozen Bittorrent tracker: the St. Louis show in November that we got the two Prince covers from is still available, as is of Montreal's videoed performance on Mexican TV. We are working on ripping that Mexico City video down to sharable size, hopefully we'll have that done before Xmas. Or Festivus.
