New Live Vids up @ KINODV: Mission of Burma and James Chance and The Contortions
Happy New Year…..It’s gotta be better than the last one!!!
First new live video for 1999 is Mission of Burma from the Underground Show in 1980. “Devotion” this has been re-cut for the Matador Records release of The Definitive Editions. The 1980 show also featured The Cure that night. The Cure were obviously impressed with Burma as Robert Smith dedicated one of their songs to them
Hailing and wailing from NYC is James Chance and The Contortions.
This clip comes from a show at Max’s Kansas City filmed in 1979.
Chance is at his snotty best here with his performance of “I Can’t Stand Myself”. When it came to James Chance you either liked him or hated him.
