Live on Letterman

I’ve got grit under my fingernails and my hands smell of fork grease. I’ve been in the garage. Rebuild a rear wheel for my Fondriest, played with an old Manitou, changed the brake around on my Voodoo Scorcher. I’ve been a busy boy.

As I sat and ate lunch, I fired up the laptop and started listening to music. Somehow ended up on Youtube and somehow ended up noticing the literally thousands of kick ass vids from appearances from a multitude of artists on Late Night with David Letterman. Some of these performances rock it.

Figured, hell, might as well share a few. In no particular order, may I present to you: Lunch With Big Jonny – A Musical Offering of Peace and Prosperity. Ok, forget that last part. Too hippy-dippy-hugs-n-sunshine. Let’s try this: Crank Open A #10 Can of Whoop-ASS! Nah, too gay-redneck-in-denail. Fuck it. Just click and enjoy.

At The Drive-In – One Armed Scissor

Sparta – Breaking The Broken

Queens of the Stone Age – Go with the Flow

Update: I didn’t realize till I looked at this post on the front end of things hours later that I had, somehow, overlooked including this gem. Forgive me, sweet jesus.

About big jonny

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. That Deftones video is awesome. I saw them play with Quicksand about a million years ago.. Aside from my AMIGOs, they’re just about the only thing good to ever come out of Sacramento.

  2. Queens are fucking TIGHT live…saw them open for Chili Peppers a few years back…they are precise like Helmet…like pushin’ PLAY on the stereo…

    Dig Dave Letterman…best thing to come outta Ball State University…

  3. I don’t think FGG has copyrighted this yet, so “Hell Yes!”, thanks for the ass kickin start to the day.

  4. At The Drive In was one of my favorites. I was pretty glad when I realized that their demise would lead to two more amazing bands.

    I wish I could go back to the show that I saw them play with Jimmy Eat World in a hole in the wall in Winston-Salem 10 years ago.

    Those were the days.

  5. I’ve had Tokyo Police Club on regular iPod rotation for about a year. I have The Fratellis on the same playlist – great for running.

    Give Oppenheimer a look if you haven’t. I saw them open for TMBG last year. Very odd duo from Belfast. Poppy electronica, ELO meets OMD – has a futuristic 80’s feel – they make a lot of sound for two guys. Sounds best on headphones – the music’s very busy.
