A Videodrone Public Service Announcement With Superchunk

Dec 17th, 2007 // 22 Comments

Do you know what we haven’t done much of lately? Just posted a video of a song that we happen to love. You know, just for the hell of it. Even in these waning days of 2007, it can’t be all year-end lists and shitty album covers! So here are a bunch of Superchunk videos. Mostly because a.) Superchunk always improves my seasonally affected bad mood, but also because b.) YouTube didn’t have any Lync clips. Lync! Christ, next I’m gonna be digging up old live footage of Christie Front Drive.

That’s “Driveway To Driveway” above.

“The First Part” [YouTube]

“Hyper Enough” [YouTube]

The ’90s! I miss them. I am old.

    SQUEEEEEE SUPERCHUNK MAKES ME SO HAPPY

    Wow. Superchunk videos with mention of both Lync and Christie Front Drive. What’s next? Silver Scooter? Mineral? Hazel??!? WANT!

  3. MTS

    RAYMOND BRAKE PLZ K THX

    radical! i have their dvd from a few years ago, and i’ve probably watched it more times than any given piece of cinema that i own. in large part because of the mood-lifting qualities that you have described.

    FUTUREHORSE, i see your silver scooter et al. and raise you a chisel and a rondelles!

  5. thearcanemodel

    just kidding, MTS totes wins.

    Last I checked, Christie Front Drive’s reunion show is up on youtube, partitioned song by song.

    “Foolish” has been one of the best old albums I’ve gotten into this year, so that makes me happy.

    Finally, my estimation of you has jumped 40% with that Lync namecheck.

    @MTS: Texas Is The Reason FTW?
    I could piss away a whole novel waxing nostalgiac about how that band saved my life.

  8. Maura Johnston

    @SuperUnison: this is the perfect time of year for that lync album, innit? so awesome.

  9. futurehorse

    @SuperUnison: I just yesterday listened to that TITR 7″, the, you know, “So know it’s your turn to tell me that I’m wrong” one. God, it doesn’t get much better than that. @maura: YES YES YES! I think I read somewhere that Greg Dulli started throwing in a Lync cover in some of his Twilight Singers shows…

    Everytime I watch a Superchunk video, someone else from hawthorne heights dies (hopefully)

  11. MTS

    TRUST ME, I COULD GO ON FOR DAYS LISTING TONS OF CHAPEL HILL INDIE ROCK BANDS TIME HAS FORGOTTEN…

    ERECTUS MONOTONE FTW

    raymond brake were from greensboro, no?

  13. mackro

    Polvo are reuniting btw for an ATP festival.. I figure you all knew that… maybe… ?

  14. Jess Harvell

    i think it might finally be time for the “12 days of 90s emo”

  15. MTS

    @willhack15: You are correct, bro. But I mentally categorize them with the CH scene.

  16. righteousmaelstrom

    Wow. I had never seen that That “Driveway to Driveway” video before. It’s weird considering pretty much all of the songs on “Foolish” are about Mac and Laura’s breakup.

  17. Cam/ron

    I also miss the 90′s, back when indie rock truly meant something.

  18. MTS

    The “Crowding Up Your Visual Field” DVD is worth picking up — it has all the videos (including “Untied,” which MTV refused to air), bonus footage, the most depressing tour documentary you will ever see, and a great interview about the history of the band.

  19. Halfwit

    And now I feel all young and callow…

  20. righteousmaelstrom

    @MTS: Thanks! Just put it in my netflix queue. Hopefully, the tour doc isn’t as depressing as LoudQUIETLoud with Black Francis’ predilection for walking around without a shirt on.

  21. Al Shipley

    Fucking awesome, man, I love Superchunk. Also, props for not posting the video starring noted indie rock comedian David Cross. Why am I getting a buch of “We’re sorry, this video is no longer available” screens, though? Is Merge policing YouTube?

  22. SuperUnison

    @maura: Yeah, it’s jumping to the ipod as soon as I get home. I think it works really well for LA, since there are, in fact, no fall colors here. Damn, I want to be listening to “Cue Cards” and smoking like I wish it was a crime right now!
