Watch this vampire bat run like hell
When did Instagram for video come out?
I read that Robert Pollard of Guided By Voices was a fan of Moby Grape. He at least name dropped them. I can kind of hear it in this one.
…the Moby Grapes?
Er, ya need to bone up on some of the forgotten psychedelic bands of the sixties. Well, well, worth the time and listen and listen, it’s like that night bird that flew threw yr ears, leaving a flap, flap, flap that calmed you, soothed you, let you know where you were and weren’t
What’s big and purple and lives in the ocean?
Jerry Miller (guitar) still plays around Santa Cruz with a couple of ex-Doobies in a pretty sharp bar band.
yep, in fact I taped one of Jerry’s recent shows http://www.bluoz.com/blog/index.php?/archives/1556-The-Jerry-Miller-and-Terry-Haggerty-band-Live-at-Ashkenaz,-Berkeley,-September-6,-2012.html
and Peter Lewis is playing Berkeley pretty soon November 17th 2012 at the Art House Gallery & Cultural Center in Berkeley CA. 2905 Shattuck Ave.
It’s not on YouTube, but Spirit performed Fresh Garbage on Donald O’Connor’s short-lived afternoon show at about the same time. Culture clash city! Still remember it after all these years; if anyone can track down a tape of it you’ll be my hero forever.
