July 20th, 2011 Videos Of The Week

In Honor Of Henry Rollins

LIVE VIDEO OF THE WEEK: "Rise Above" and "American Waste" by Black Flag

Sound quality's not so good, but the energy is just downright contagious!

First video, Rise Above, is with Rollins, and former singer Dez Cadena playing guitar, who then sings on the second, and earlier song American Waste.

Target Video was a studio that recorded a lot of punk bands live performances, including the Dead Kennedys, Iggy Pop and the Sex Pistols.

MUSIC VIDEO OF THE WEEK: "Let There Be Rock" by The Hard-Ons feat. Henry Rollins

Henry Rollins will fuck a guy up if there isn't any rock.

The Hard Ons, one of Austrailia's bigger indie bands recorded a cover of the AC/DC Classic in 1991.
I was expecting him to half shout the song, but he delivers it. Still great, but I do miss a couple of the vocal flourishes that Bon Scott did in the original, like the southern accent on "Hear the finger pickin'", for example.
