Two happy videos and a very sad one.

April 7, 2007

edit 20070411: context for the yunguns: XTC were a great band from the late ’70’s/early ’80’s, the first video is of a song that wasn’t on any of their records, the second video is a song by their alter egos, and the third is their singer famously freaking out onstage at what turned out to be their last concert.

Happy #1:

Happy #2:

Sad:

  1. Having no musical qualifications, I can only make the following comment:
    The lead fella in Happy Video #1 bears an uncanny resemblance to Shep, the current collections manager at the Bishop Museum (http://hbs.bishopmuseum.org/staff/myers.html) . At least, as he was in college.

    p.s. bob rules
