More YouTubin'--it's weird, I hate TV but I can watch these little blurry things all day.
" live 1970 - awesome - Czukay and Suzuki: "no shirt no service" (also here
--louder sound, worse video, loads slower).
"--probably my favorite Can song--suspect the video was made later than 1970.
Boards of Canada "Gyroscope
" (for the video) - lots of geometric patterns and mismatched letters - watch out, Jack Pierson's gallery will write you an angry note.
Boards of Canada "In a Beautiful Place
" (for the music).
Atari Teenage Riot - "Revolution Action
" - ahh, the dotcom era.
" --that '80s beatbox sound will never die. [link replaced Aug 2010]
808 State "Pacific
" (1989) - the sublime.
Aphex Twin "Come to Daddy
" - the ridiculous. I remember James saying in an interview he woke up and his girlfriend was in the bed next to him wearing one of those masks and he freaked out.
Roxy Music "Do the Strand
" (The '80s were invented in 1973--and see Eno in "outre" drag).
Roxy Music "In Every Dream Home a Heartache
" (Eno wearing that feathery thing--with VCS3 and tapes on stage).
King Crimson "Lark's Tongues in Aspic
" 1972 (feat. Jamie Muir, who was in the Music Improvisation Company with the late Derek Bailey. Troll repellent: yes, it's "pretentious").
Update, Aug. 2010: All these links are dead except Mushroom, Boards of Canada, and Clipse. Viacom - what a joke.
