Re: (TV) OT: Luna & Dean Wareham & Voices & Biographies

I'm with you on The Fall Leif. Still the best live band ever (if MES is 
on a good night. If not then could be real bad). Anyway with the recent 
mentions of Zeppelin on here i thought I would post this.  A clip from 
Jools Holland show. The Fall were preceded by Robert Plant who did some 
completely unforgettable thing which finishes with some dinky handclaps. 
Just as Plant is wrapping up and before they are even introduced, The 
Fall pile in with a storming rendition of _Blindness_. Possibly my 
favourite Youtube clip ever:
