I really wanted to link the real video for Portishead's Machine Gun but I couldn't find a copy to embed. The first time I heard this album I thought it was amazing. The fourth time I thought it was boring and now I'm back to thinking it's great.
My brother took me to see Pulp the day before I left for college. Bran Van 3000 opened up. Their set was pretty ridiculous.
I love this song and video. The first time I saw Final Fantasy live he opened up for Arcade Fire. He was dressed in a marching band outfit, had bad dark roots and I thought his music was boring. Two years later, I'm a big fan. I think his show with Grizzly Bear/Brooklyn Philharmonic later this month is going to be great.
