DFA79' Live Performance Video! - Kicking Against the Pricks: A Journal About Music Lust

Nov. 8th, 2005 10:04 pm DFA79' Live Performance Video!

Death From Above 1979

Hmm, it's quite strange but DFA79' have a streaming performance from their date at the Voodoo Music Experience on VH1, of all places. Man, I guess the band's is truly on this whole other level now after this tour with NIN... I still think that their sound is better suited and loved in small clubs than in huge arenas. I don't know where the band will go from here but I hear their next album will be some crazy concept like 3 different versions of the album all released at the same time. I can't even fathom what all that will sound like. I know there are plenty of people that just plain dislike this band or don't get their appeal, I can't really explain it either, but I know that ever since I first heard the track 'Dead Womb' on the semi-obscure CBCRadio3 site about a year ago, I've been fascinated by their sound. They have really blown up in a year's time but I wish them all the best... they are still some humble guys with amazing drumming and bass playing abilities. I know there are a ton of other bands out there to love right now but DFA are still on the top of my list. Watch a full performance of the band and try not to get distracted by the ten people in the audience...



There are like a billion UK bands to check out all the time including now and right now the Rakes are at the top of my list to hear further... I'm liking what I hear so far but it's all in the same vein as Futureheads and Maximo Park, which is not bad at all. The producer of all those bands, Paul Epworth, does the Rakes album too so I like that. Epworth also does those excellent Phones remixes that always sound awesome to me. I don't think this post-punk/disco-punk revival will die down but I still cannot stop listening! Here's the fabulous Phones remix of the awesome Rakes track 'Retreat' from their EP.
