SFA: 15 Years of Being Completely Amazing in Every Way Possible

July 29, 2008


For me, seeing these two pics side-by-side is like seeing those pics of the Beatles on the Red and Blue Apple compilation albums (I can’t remember what they’re called – but you know the ones I mean). As you can see, the years have been particularly kind to Mr Pryce! SFA embody everything that’s great about music – exquisite songwriting, focused experimentation, and earth-shatteringly beatutiful live performances¬†. What’s more, they headline the Stockton-on-Tees festival this Friday – admission zero pounds!

PS here’s a link to a dreadful SFA fan site I used to run in the days before blogs, Google, Facebook, Web 2.0, broadband, digital tv, iPods, full-colour Berliner-sized-Guardian, etc.


Werner Herzog Gets Shot and Eats His Shoe

July 18, 2008

Here’s a clip of Werner Herzog getting shot during an interview with Mark Kermode. He seems to take it all in astonishingly good spirits. I like the Herzogian (?) poigniancy at the timing of the shooting, just after he says ‘Nobody cares about my films.’ WARNING: When showing the bullet wound he reveals some pretty swish purple boxer shorts.

And here’s a longer clip (20mins) of Werner eating his shoe. Don’t worry, he’s doing it for a perfectly good reason.

Finally, there’s a decent video for this on youtube! I got their album Volume 1 recently – it’s definitely going to be in my Top 10 of 2008.
