(Until then) I'm not talking


John & Paul; George & Paul, A.C. & Neko -- some voices were born to harmonize & it's so cool when they meet up again

Love this. It's so great to see real people making real music.

(And when it's Carl Newman and Neko Case... that just makes it a million times better.)

I like the way ... things are. Seriously, I dig this video so much, & keep coming back to it so much, I'm not all that inclined to make a less interesting post to supplant it. But the thought I meant to offer up at the outset: I usually do not like cameras that move. One of the genius notions of Austin City Limits was to Quit Screwing Around With The Camera (QSAWTC). Put the sucker on a tripod and let the viewer decide what to focus on. Unless it's a solo, OK. But here the video guy or gal is moving all over the freaking place, yet to my consternation, it works.

One thing: It does feel like the camera person and video editor were really listening to the music. At times the camera is actually moving to the music. I dunno. But it works here, and is the exception that proves the rule of don't eff around with the camera when you're filming a rock band.
