    Plaid are awesome.
    I saw them perform with an amazing visual projection a few years ago with Coil at the Barbican in London (acutally 2002). I’m not sure if the visuals were by Bob Jaroc but they were some of the most amazing I’ve ever seen and I’d love to know more if anyone has any info! (I think this was before Greedy baby)

    For best viewing (and association with what is going on) I suggest using stereo headphones and not laptop speakers or computer speakers.

    @Squeevey, that’s a great suggestion.

    Yay Plaid! Another great pairing of animation and Plaid is the animated film, Tekkon Kinkreet.

    wow, commenting seemed borked for a bit. Kept getting invalid request movable type errors trying to log in. Anyway, Tekkon Kinkreet – I can’t recommend it enough.

    @1 indeed that was me and alex evens of little big planet/Media Molecule fame collaborating on the visuals that night, twas a good show. It was the 1st uk outing of v1 of our robot arm with cameras on it.


    is a vid of the arms eye view at a show, i think it was the bluebird in denver, the tourbus parked right outside of an adult store and the blacked out lounge window looked right onto the exit, an enjoyable afternoon drinking tea and watching the furtive/guilty/brazen exits from the store was had.
