it doesn't get much better than this

can't find the original video except in embedding-disabled form, what a pain

the amazing thing about it is that they looked impossibly haggard and leathery even then, 1981, when they were quite a bit younger than me now

when Keef first hoves into view in the bottom right hand corner of the screen, it's like some pithecanthropic man popping out of nowhere

but the music ... that deceptively scrappy, casual-seeming groove... loose yet tight, feeling like it might disintegrate any minute. yet absolutely implacable, tireless ("i'll never stop")

and the er salty lyric
