damon & naomi

If I were to give birth to a daughter right about now, I would name her Naomi after the beautiful Naomi Yang. I've never listened much to Galaxie 500 nor Damon & Naomi, but these clips on La Blogotheque, filmed in a Paris apartment last year, are just beautiful. Perfect Sunday afternoon listening!

I think I will spend my afternoon watching Galaxie 500 clips on Youtube. "Blue Thunder" is the only song I really know - Stephen Malkmus included it when he guest-programmed Rage back in 2001. I still have it on video - have a look at his very diverse playlist and you can understand why it still warrants repeated viewings seven years later.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Galaxie 500 are probably the best guitar bend ever for me. I really can't think of any other band (maybe The Clientele?) who can play extended solos/passages and make every last note something to cherish. The double dvd ( is tremendous! Thanks to this post I plan on listening to the 4 cd box set and probably the 'Copenhagen' live cd and then ... ooh ... for good measure the BBC sessions cd :) What a band! Dean Wareham was once browsing next to me in a record shop in Glasgow and like a prune I didn't recognise him. Boy, did I feel silly when it was pointed out who was browsing the vinyl next to me. Mind you, I did the same with Alex Chilton :)
