Footage of Chris Morris playing with his band!
« on: October 11, 2019, 05:19:56 AM »
I’ve lurked on this forum for years and benefited immeasurably from everyone’s reporting and comments. I’m sorry if this has been posted before, but I can’t believe I found live footage of Chris Morris performing with the Exploding Hamsters. As if this isn’t bizarre enough already, he’s actually a really good bassist!

Wow, thanks for this! Photo in the Disgusting Bliss book, of course.

Fucking hell, what a great find! Thanks, OP. Very, very odd seeing Morris perform in a band you'd expect to see on Pepple Mill or similar.

Excellent. Those of us who attended the release of the book No Known Cure in 2013 were treated to this footage. I'm glad it's available for the world.

So glad it was appreciated! It’s interesting how Morris made the transition from music like this to all the weird trance/trip-hop in ‘Blue Jam’. I wonder what he thinks about this now...hahaha

Inspired by your video find, i did a quick google search and managed to find these songs from the exploding hamsters on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUWuoPeW7I0
May be old hat, but i'd never heard them and perhaps some others haven't either...  Great find Benjamin!

^ My sentiments exactly. Terrible song and band name, but a little treasure all the same. What a guy.

Good lord. You'd be hard pushed to find a whiter piece of music than that.

Great find.

Nah, it's pure mid-80's midday TV chat show fodder. Like some sort of edgier Black Lace.
