The first excerpt features the band at a karaoke bar in Glasgow, and the second one Kevin's musings (set to the incessant, poignant croaking of seagulls) on the historic beach of Brighton (would have Kevin sided with the mods or the rockers?).
The editing is, in my humble opinion, quite fantastic (live action, interview, candid camera moments, Al Pacino making a guest appearance - it's got it all!), both artsy and watchable. About a million light years from of Montreal's previous effort (the rather dull "Cause We Were Virgins To Your Kisses" DVD that came out last year)
"Welcome to the psychiatric patient ward, America"
On January 25, 2009, Scotland celebrated the 250th birthday of Robert Burns, its national poet. Of Montreal had the day off in Glasgow, and so the band decided to check out the festivities, which concluded with Karaoke at a local bar. Most gracious Glaswegians, Dez and Charlie, bought round after round, as Davey, Michael, and BP belted out hit after hit. Incidentally, the night revealed a striking resemblance between Kevin Barnes and Robert Burns, two poets known for their unique mixture of mirth and melancholy.
"But then I realized that I wasn't supposed to attact the Terradactyl."
More to come on Spenser's documentary as the Booty Patrol gets more information.
