6 April 2012 - Elastica - Da Da Da

I have seen Elastica live twice.  Far and away, they are the best band I have ever seen live.  Ironically, I was disappointed to be seeing them the first time, when they were added to the Lollapalooza lineup to replace a departing Sinead O'Connor.   They were a significant upgrade.

I really hope they reunite at some point.  Fantastic band.

This live cover of a classic Trio song features original bassist Annie Holland on bass.  She was so good, they wrote a song about her. This song adds life to a song, which was largely in German, that prided itself in being somewhat monotone.  The original leaned on a keyboard sound, which is still there, but adds more of a fuzzy guitar sound.
