I came across this while looking for something completely different.

I guess some 70s bands just didn't make the transition to video

Heh.  Yes were never too bothered about appearances. Hiring wossisname to do the album covers was probably their best ever decision (and I guess even they look hideously uncool to non-fans these days!)

Bands that look cool are nice - but sometimes a bunch of geeks making good music is cool, too.

Or for the truly bizarre, a realisation of O Superman that Laurie Anderson probably had in mind when she wrote it:

I think that's almost brilliant. They haven't tried to do some cheesy dance routine, instead they've interpreted it as a sort of scifi opera. I remember the song being a lot longer than that though - perhaps there was a 12" version?

It's part of a longer piece, and is about eight minutes long.
