That is fantastic. Who did the video? More importantly, is there more?

Anonymous, it's the Mountain Goats performing "Heretic Pride." An outstanding album all the way around.

I know who it is (they are an old favorite of mine), but I was wondering about the actual video...is there more concert footage available? I didn't see any on the tubes. I'm sick to death of seeing the camera phone footage...this just seems so professional I thought maybe it was on some commercially available.

Did you happen to see the cover of "Suedehead" with Kaki King from New York?

It's really good, and a great fit for them.

Thanks for finding it and posting it.

YouTube has a link back to the Phoenix newspaper out of Boston. The
Phoenix website has a couple more.

Always pays to go to the source, thanks Snag.

Also, I really liked the 50 words/50 posts experiment, great tension.

Happy Holidays.

I never much liked the Mountain Goats, but that is indeed an excellent song. May require some reconsideration.

Saw them just recently, and the Suedehead cover was very cool. But while I loved the Smiths, I've never been as enamored of Mozza's solo stuff. But Kaki King opening up was very very cool.

I had picked up an older MG album but never got into them much until a friend took me to see them at the Pabst. They are so good live, RB. Listen to Snag.
