Over the years, we managed to waste quite a bit of money on videos. I shudder to think of it.
To be honest, we always worked best live. Here’s a soundcheck version of Abandon that a friend of Damian’s recently posted to YouTube. It’s from the Brixton Academy in 1992. There’s even a Young Gods quote in the breakdown. And I’ve gotta say, it’s pretty freakin’ good. Thanks to Billy Hassett for posting this.
Although this is a great song, it’s really not a good video. Hey, the original idea was pretty great. Yet another problem with execution. sigh.
Ya know, love it or hate it, YouTube has really been fantastic for rock videos. It was only recently that I even thought that some of our videos would be up there. Well whaddya know? And this one doesn’t sound half bad! In fact, I think it’s pretty damned good.
Okay, this one is a bit on the embarrassing side. Look how serious we are! Look how drunk! Ah, the days of filming videos for 150 pounds in squats in Vauxhaul…
