Here is an interesting video Chris ran across on Youtube.
b/w stills video set to Pendleton from Italy, worh checking out:
We are going to start posting some music from the vaults on a regular basis. Some studio, some live, some unreleased. Keep checking back.
First up is "Blake". (For those who attended one of the Somerville Theater shows a few years back, you may remember a live version of this one. ) In the winter of 96-97, Buffalo Tom holed up for a week in Chappaquiddick on Martha's Vineyard. They were joined by Tom Gorman from Belly on keyboards, who also played a string of live shows with them at that time. The band was in the beginning stages of working on material for 1998s "Smitten" album. A couple of tracks from this time made it onto the B-sides ep released that same year, "Cupid Come" and "Hawaian Baby".
"Only Living Boy in New York" , a Simon and Garfunkel cover, is from the same session as Blake.
"Frozen Lake" was from a Kendall Cafe shows a few years back.
"Sun God" is another from the 8-track recordings at Chappaquiddick.
Buffalo Tom have been writing and rehearsing about 15 new songs in one of the coldest, bleakest Boston winters in recent memory. Lots of animal names in the working titles suggest some type of barnyard theme.
Thanks to Ken Okaya again for his great shots from the 10.26 show at the Somerville Theater.
Check out the new video "You'll Never Catch Him", it's done by Mike Boudo and from the latest album "Three Easy Pieces"
