Too bad they'll never put out another album. It would probably cost them way too much to create today.

That's a good point, unfortunately. And here I thought they were taking five years to get through their sophomore slump.

I remember reading about a small club tour they had almost a year ago, which turned out to be some sort of noise art experiment. I thought they were just being creative, but I suppose they could have been trying out their new sound.

Sight and Sound has a pretty interesting article on the behind-the-scenes stuff going on during The Last Waltz.

Cheers, Irwin. Excellent piece.

Looking forward to seeing Jonathon Demme's, Neil Young: Heart of Gold.

Interesting, but he's done much better work. Without the strobes and gross out effects, the video isn't much and song isn't that great. Meh.

I love this man's work to bits! I can't wait for him to move into feature films. I just know his first one is going to be as influential as Eraserhead and Tetsuo.

It's a shame that he never got to adapt William Gibson's cyberpunk novel Neuromancer like he had wanted. I can only imagine some of the visuals he would have crafted for cyberspace...

Has anyone seen Muse's video for "Knights of Cydonia"? It's a very amusing homage to Leone spaghetti westerns fused with the cheesy '70s Buck Rogers. Very odd combo that strangely works.

Anyone who hasn't seen it should check out Pulp's video for This Is Hardcore. Great stuff.

Pulp's a pretty consistent artist as far as music videos go - their best is probably their video for Bad Cover Version, which does theoretical loop-de-loops around questions of indexicality.

Yeah, I'd agree. The only videos on the Hits dvd that don't really do it for me are the run of the mill performance ones ("Sorted," "Something Changed"). All of the videos from This Is Hardcore are excellent with one ("A Little Soul") doing that rare thing of actually making me re-appreciate a song.

John Kricfalusi's video for Tenacious D's "Classico," a song from their upcoming video is online in all of its raunchy glory.

Light Is Calling, by Bill Morrison.

I love the way at one point about five minutes in the soldier seems to lift the girl up out of the damage and it is almost as it they are having to physically fight against it!

all of the pet shop boys dvds are wonderful, and 'performance' in particular is outstanding.

I can't believe that nobody has mentioned Urgh! A Music War as this is a capsule on 1980 and the diverse Music Scene :)

A music video directed by Antonioni!

Gianna Nannini - Fotoromanza. (it's not great, I think, but anyway...)

I'm very late on this, but I hadn't made the connection until reading the linked blog posting that Paul Thomas Anderson had directed the Fiona Apple version of Across The Universe.

i always love Sigur Ros, and their DVD Concert "Heima" is one of the best concert I've seen.

My personal favorite music video (gee, I should just call it a short film) is the Decemberists' video for The Tain. All their videos are pretty nifty in fact..I recall one that was very Rushmore-esque.. but no music video has since dazzled me like the Tain.

MIA and Blaqstarr cover Tom Waits' "Way Down in the Hole" in what must be one of the lowest-budgeted vids.

He's directed quite a few music videos for Fiona Apple including "Fast As You Can", "Paper Bag" and "Limp".

Watch this space, I guess.

Michel Gondry's not-yet-up website promises an online-only second volume of his music videos. (Plus lots of other whimsical stuff, including the French Science of Sleep DVD with b-roll version, the disaster calendar from that film, and Michel Gondry bad-joke toilet paper).

Cool stuff. I hope the site also contains complete version of the "sweded" films from Be Kind Rewind that were inexplicably left off the DVD.
