I never liked Peter Hook, but then I saw the Light.

They give a good gig. 14 euros for 2 hours of note perfect renditions of lost classics like ultraviolence and doubts even here is fine by me.

Live stream list gets updated several times a day, so keep checking. Some big names scheduled today -

The Strokes, Rufus Wainwright, Radiohead, Dolly Parton

When it's a band, rather than a solo artist/performance, often seem to show old concert footage, previously unseen, but usually there's an extra twist/element, and Radiohead are likely to have come up with an interesting idea. Fingers crossed, jt. :)

VERY interesting - many thanks.

Yes, it is clearly a mixture of new and old because the great but late Charles Bradley, for example, is on that list. I will probably be shot for my next comment. Radiohead are my fourth of four in terms of what you mention (I enjoy being bloody minded about the adulation for Radiohead, the Stones and Elvis) though it comes with a proviso. If it is new, it is always interesting to see what they do re innovation as they do have novel approaches to technology/communication.

If you can be bothered to watch the end credits you'll see me listed as one of the Producers.

Little and astonishing song, almost unknown, I had to upload it to YouTube myself; original, oldish ~1987, remake was done later.

Sean Yeaton is pretty entertaining. Got a touch of the Jim Carrey about him.
