On May 25th, 2013, the alt-supergroup B.A.L.L. reunited for one show at Bowery Electric in NYC. I was lucky to capture the entire gig. Messrs. Kramer, Don Fleming, Bob Bert, and Jay Spiegel gave a mind-blowing performance, and here 'tis.
Here's my video for "Jeffrey I Hear You" (Hearpen HR106) by the seminal late 1970s Boho-art punk band from Boston with Daved Hild, George Condo, Mark Dagley, and Robin Amos. It was produced by David Thomas and recorded at Suma Studios on 2/10/79.

Here is a video that I made recently for the plaintively beautiful song "The Veronica Building" by Kramer and Daved Hild from their album "Rubber Hair." It uses home movies of someone's trip to Disneyland in the 1950s and a Police Athletic League promo from the early 1960s.

Back in 1991, some of the djs at WFMU participated in a tribute album to Thomas Alva Edison devised by staff member and improv master, Jim Price that was available as a fundraising marathon premium to support the radio station. This was my contribution, a cover of the Bee Gees song "Edison" from their 1969 album "Odessa." It was an abbreviated version of the song, and my full name was longer than the song itself. Last year I decided to make a video for the song and used footage from the Prelinger Archive, my favorite source for industrial and ephemeral films in the public domain.
Here is the Bee Gees' original version.
