Big Black Deep-Fries Its Turducken In Some Kerosene

Nov 21st, 2007 // 5 Comments

Do you know what I’m thankful for? The fact that someone uploaded this vintage clip of Chicago’s Big Black rumbling and screeching through their violent celebration of drunken hick entropy “Kerosene.” See, Big Black knew what a drag going home for the holidays could be. (Even if young Steve Albini also looks like he could have used a nice home-cooked meal or twelve.)

    i always wanted them to team up with ozzy and richard page for a cock rock covers band under the name ‘mr. mister big black sabbath’.

    Awesome! I love the close-up of the Die Kreuzen shirt halfway through.

    Skipping around the “related” YouTube clips, it’s clear that they played “Passing Complexion” early in the show, and “Kerosene” and “Jordan, Minnesota” later, because that lovely Die Kreuzen shirt obviously has a bad experience with a bottle of grape juice (or pyrotechnic materials, or blood) somewhere during the set.

    I think Albini cut his finger on his guitar (or his guitar sound, which rock-crits always compared to shards of glass). Anyway, in the Pig Pile video he’s bloody as well.

    I love it when music reminds me of home…
