YouTube shut down my video channel because of the MTV Unplugged by The Cure. I have backups of everything but it will take time to get it up. Patience people.

Update: I did not save everything. Ugg. I did save the stuff that was important to me but I did post a bunch of videos that other people would appreciate. The biggest loss was the video of Billy Corgan interviewing Nick Cave. That video alone had 28,000 views and was quite funny. There were other stuff I'm sure that I can't remember. Oh well.

Sugarcubes - Motorcrash (SNL 1988)


From Season 14, Episode 2 of Saturday Night Live which Aired: October 15, 1988
I remember this performance because my friend and I saw Bjork at the Jesus and Mary Chain concert the night before. The opening band that night was the Pixies. It was a great night!

Supergrass - St. Petersburg


From the album "Road to Rouen" released August 8th, 2005 (UK) and August 27th, 2005 (US).
This is a little bit better quality than the one on the Supergrass official.

The Replacements - Alex Chilton


From the album "Pleased to Meet Me" released in July 1987.
BTW Alex Chilton plays guitar on "Can't Hardly Wait" on that album. Damn this reminds me of high school.

Cocteau Twins - Evangeline.mp4


I was surprised to find this on YouTube! I never knew they made a video for this song. The Cocteau Twins hold a special place in my heart and I saw them multiple times when they finally toured again in the 90's.

Spacemen 3 - Big City (Everybody I Know Can Be Found Here)


Spacemen 3 - Big City (Everybody I Know Can Be Found Here)
from the album "Recurring" released in February 1991
I can't find the edit/album version from the original release to sync this up so I had to use the audio from my recording. There is a little buzz here and there. I didn't like this song when it came out but it's growing on me while I'm working on it. I'm a huge fan of their earlier stuff, did that sound elitist?? I hope not, I mean I like Spaceman 3 when Peter and Jason are actually playing together. They only play on one track on this album.

Depeche Mode - Get The Balance Right!


"Get the Balance Right!" single was released on January 31, 1983.
Released in the US on the compilation album "People are People" on July 2, 1984.
In the music video Wilder lip-syncs the first lines of the song, even though Dave Gahan should be singing it. The band were too afraid to tell the director that Gahan was the lead singer.[2] For some reason the director made the assumption that the singer was Wilder and they were too embarrassed to point out his mistake, the video remains this way today. The music video is not commercially available. (WIKI) After all my years listening to Depeche Mode, and this song being one of my favorites, I didn't know that.

Pop Will Eat Itself - There Is No Love Between Us Anymore


"There Is No Love Between Us Anymore" was released on the "Box Frenzy" album in 1987.
I missed the first 10 seconds of the video, but this is better than what is on YouTube at the moment.

Kitchens of Distinction - Drive that fast


"Drive that fast" is from the second album Strange Free World by British alternative rock/dream pop group Kitchens of Distinction, released on February 19, 1991
I missed a couple of seconds from the beginning.

David Bowie - Space Oddity (Original Version 1969)


I realized that all the versions of the "Love you till Tuesday" video are not great quality. That means I'm going to upload the rest of the videos this week.

I also found the Cure Unplugged on MTV 1991 and I can't believe that it's not on video yet. The videos out there are not as good so I'm going to upload those too. I'm going to slow down and post one video a day and write more about them.

Redd Kross - Lady In The Front Row


From the album "Phaseshifter" released on October 5, 1993.
The video is a liitle wiggly due to the VHS tape I used. Damn, I love this song! The obvious Beatles influences are there in the video, especially in the vocals near the end. I tried to use a better audio source multiple times but it just didn't work and I don't know why. I just gave up and posted the original source audio.

Elastica - Stutter (original video)


This is the original version when the album was released. They made a better video when the album became popular.
The single was released November 1, 1993
Also from the album: "Elastica" released March 13, 1995
The beginning is cut, sorry! I tried to sync the album version but it doesn't sync which means that they played it live to make this video.

Update: YouTube muted the audio, I don't know why because there are other versions out there. Oh well.

David Bowie - Let Me Sleep Beside You


From "Love Me till Tuesday"
Love You till Tuesday was a promotional film designed to showcase the talents of David Bowie, made in 1969. The film was the latest attempt by his manager, Kenneth Pitt, to bring Bowie to a wider audience. (Wiki) I first heard this song on a bootleg compilation of David Bowie recordings at the BBC. The recording were officially released on the album Bowie at the Beeb released in 2000.

Suede (Brett Anderson) interviewed on MTV 1995

Squirrel Nut Zippers - Put A Lid On It (Live on Conan 1997)

The Cramps - Naked Girl Falling Down the Stairs (live on MTV 1995)


The Cramps perform "Naked Girl Falling Down the Stairs" live on MTV's 120 Minutes. From the album: Flamejob released on October 11, 1994
Poison Ivy and Lux Interior hosted the show that night.
I can't verify the year but I think it's 1995. I am a big fan of their earlier stuff, I didn't get into this era of their music. I saw the Cramps at the Ritz (Webster Hall) in 1989. It was probably the 3rd or 4th rock show I've ever seen and it was a blast. I remember throwing a wrapped BlowPop during the last show and Lux picked it up, unwrapped it and put it is his mouth as he left the stage.

Blur - To The End (Acoustic) (Live on MTV 1994)


Blur perform an acoustic version of "To the End" live on MTV's 120 Minutes
Recorded: October 2,1994
The audio has some crackle from the deterioration of the VHS tape it's on. There was another version on YouTube but it sounded muddy. This one is better, even with the crackle. Does anyone have a better audio source?? Send me a message if you can help me.

Radiohead interview on MTV (1996)


Serena Altschul interviews Radiohead at the beginning of their spring tour at the Troubador in Los Angeles, CA (March 19, 1996) Clips of their live show inter-cut the interview.
Topics include: recording the Bends, discussing the "Just" video ending, playing live and recording their next album. Thom said it would take 3 years, it actually was released a year and 83 days later.

Radiohead - High and Dry (Live on MTV 1996)


Radiohead perform "High and Dry" live on MTV's 120 Minutes on March 17, 1996
"High and Dry" was the first single released from their second album, The Bends (released on March 13, 1995).
I didn't know this:
"High and Dry" was recorded during the Pablo Honey sessions but was dismissed by the band, who thought that it sounded like a Rod Stewart song.[1] However, during the sessions for The Bends it was rediscovered and remastered, as it was felt that it worked well with the rest of the album's content. The version that appears on the album is the original demo; it was never re-recorded. (from WIKI) It also says that Thom hated this song, go figure.

Foo Fighters - I'll Stick Around (Live at the Tibetan Freedom Concert 1997)


Foo Fighters perform "I'll Stick Around" at the Tibetan Freedom Concert June7th, 1997. This was televised on MTV and Matt Pinfield tags along with Dave and Taylor on some hijinks in the second part.
I've had trouble with this VHS tape and the video comes and goes, it was recorded almost 14 years to the day, so deterioration of this tape is expected.
This is the last one for the weekend.

Radiohead Interview on MTV at the Tibetan Freedom Concert (1997)

After the interview I added Blur performing "Song 2" from that concert. I don't understand why, but the video is missing for a bit. You can still hear the audio, so I left it as is. I put other Blur performance bits at the end.
I was at this concert but I don't know which day.

Not my rip. Thanks to the person who originally posted this on the interwebs.

From the album "Plastic Lettters" 1978 on Chrysalis Records
This performance is from Top of The Pops, May 25th 1978.
I originally dubbed this from the "Best of Blondie" Laserdisc onto VHS
There is a very good HQ version of this song but it's cropped. The end of this clip ends abruptly because there isn't a gap in-between videos.

Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins - Rise Up With Fists
