Just discovered this band. No idea how the bass player is holding that down it's fucking hard to do that with spot on timing. Love the Rhodes piano too.

The state of the faces on this set of cunts. I mean seriously. That is the only tune of theirs I like to be honest. They’re clearly all great musicians but where’s the soul?

It’s possible to be tight and loose at the same time (ask your mum). See the Meters:

John Maus at KEXP

Ween Freedom of 76

Radiohead Nobody Does it Better and The Thief

Edit: While looking for a Sonic Youth performance of Be Your Dog, I discovered this instead. Turns out the States have their very own Jools Holland.

20 years today since Adrian Borland's tragic passing.

This performance of "Winning" is absolutely ferocious, The Sound should have been megastars.

According to one of the comments, it seems that the house band for this show ("Night Music", produced by SNL's Lorne Michaels and the SNL production company Broadway Video) actually had Jools Holland himself as a member on some episodes! Not on this one, though - it would have been a sight to see him attempt a boogie-woogie to that.

To be fair, DP weren't that big yet, and I think it's a generic TV audience distracted by heavy duty cameras. Great performance though.

My favourite Purple youtube is the extract from a New York show 3 years later https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1En47iPE9qE  Band and audience mesmerising.

There's an element of sending themselves up as well though. And it's nice to see Richard O'Sullivan on guitar https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=le0BLAEO93g#t=1m54s

Only having read this quote/reply on this page and not clicked the link I knew exactly what band/track it would be.

To be fair to me it seems like they aren't really aiming purely for funk revivalism, more than a bit of slick Steely Dan like fusion and some post punk in their as well.

With this quote in mind when it pans to the guitarist at about 0:56 I lost it.

Cool song though.

Hee hee! Looks like they all simultaneously jizzed when the bassist drops out of the initial riff doesn’t it?

Glen Hansard (Frames, Swell Season, 'Once' film) - Astral Weeks (Van Morrison cover)
Just Glen, his acoustic guitar and some guitar pedals, with impressive thrashy strumming (note the holes in his guitar) and his powerful voice.

Specials - Enjoy Yourself
Quite chaotic scenes with the band and crowd mingling on and off stage. Watch for vocalist Neville Staple singing the last verse from on top of a stack of amps.

Richie Kozen. Very few guitarists/singers can do both to this level. It’s like Prince meets Jeff Beck. The solos are tasty as fuck:

I was at that gig. Could barely hear anything so it was utterly shit. People were shouting 'turn it up' for the entire gig. That indeed sounds excellent though.

I was at one of the Hyde Park shows, it was one of the most miserable experiences of my life. Horrible crowd and I got bottled in the face by some twat, so spent the latter half of the performance in an absolute fuming rage and couldn't enjoy any of it.

Looked great on the DVD though.

There's tragically little live footage of prime Sandy Denny material in existence but what we do have is utterly sublime. That voice is stunning.

Great performance by a man who at times came across as quite an awkward performer, bodily.  To his credit he holds the stiff jerks and head thrusts in check, here.  Struck again by how much his voice sounds almost precisely like a fifty-fifty blend of the voices of Ian McCulloch and Bono.
