Late-night You Tubin with the Au Pairs - Kicking Against the Pricks: A Journal About Music Lust

Mar. 14th, 2006 04:16 am Late-night You Tubin with the Au Pairs

Cover of ‘Stepping Out Of Line: The Anthology’ by Au Pairs

So I'm up late into the early morning unable to stop searching for music videos I've never seen on You Tube and I come across a very rare live video of one of the best unknown bands ever, the Au Pairs! Damn, they're live performance is thrilling to see... it's gets me all worked up to dance or something! It's one of my favorite songs of theirs too, Come Again. The stage tension and interplay between the two singers is incredible! I do some more searching around on the web to see if there's anything I haven't read about the band. Lo and behold, I come across an announcement about an upcoming double cd reissue of all the Au Pairs stuff... including the hard to find Peel Sessions. I am so excited for this release due out in late April. With this release and the earlier Delta 5 compilation, this year couldn't get any better for me with all my favorite obsure bands being reissued. Damn, I feel blessed to hear and have access to some much good stuff, I am beyond content right now.

All this Au Pairs talk reminds me of the awesome song Autonomy Boy by the newish UK band the Long Blondes, that has a similar sound going on. It's an awesome track!

P.S. I'd kill to play the drums like Joy Division's drummer in this live video of my favorite song Transmission: http://youtube.com/watch?v=3Q6qr7DzWgE
