I just checked out that guy's other videos. Apparently he did this every day for a whole year to a different song and in a different location each time. #hero
How dare he nick my dance moves?
Lyrically one of my favourite bands of the '70s. Perrett was a hugely underrated writer imo, the first album particularly outstanding. In some ways I'm sorry that they never achieved the success I always felt they deserved but I also love the fact that they came, produced three great albums and then left.
Great Jam :)
@Bukowski Has been a while since I checked in on you and you have delivered - this is GREAT:) And I've been doing punk lately so it fits my agro mood:) I can hear SO many influences from XTC to Dinosaur Jr to Cave Dogs!....love it when I hear a tune I don't know - hoping my loves gets saved to archive! Great old school lead:) Sigh the '70's-early -'80's really delivered, if you got of reg FM and hit the college stations - or, like me lucky to live in Boston:)
Hmmm. think I'll put this on LL, hope you don't mind - been doing X there lately (LOL) - this just so rare and fab, and I just jammed one of my fav V Femmes tunes here, soo...:)
Oh and a little Royn Hitchcock in the vocals, yes? love that:)
@lesakramer5 the Hitchcock comparison... I've never noticed that before. You are SO right!!
@debutch Thanks- there is a certain inflection in the vocals - I dig it:)
Trying to put on LL but they just give me full album - oh well, millions of great songs out there - my motto - get stuck for 5 minutes - MOVE ON:) Like the amazing Stranglers cover that @hellothomas posted - I'm in REAL LOVE!
Bad form on my part- Greart vid - what a dancer:)
Loved it, love it...
One for all time.
hugs all round for this....
@mondosalvo I've just 'looked him up'. He's brilliant!
I was listening to this last week. I really loved this band, and its a shame they never received much recognition. Brilliant jam!
He's alright. But he's no Northern Soul Girl https://www.facebook.com/northernsoulgirldancing
@simonp Thank you for the link. I think that this chap employs a more post-modern ironic approach to choreography.
@LoreleiBeatrix Indeed. Although throughout the 80s it was played at almost every 'alternative' / 'indie' club I went to. It became something of an anthem.
A belter, sirrah...
Great stuff there Buk!
the only way!
Saw 'em a few times, they should have been enormous.
Anybody with that kind of energy.... should share some with me! LOL!
In case someone has not heard, and sorry to be repetitive:
When the party here is over, most of us are going to here: http://www.letsloop.com It is not the fine toy Jam was, but they are young and growing! Also, there is a F/B page for X jammers:
