Couple of other points. Just got the Animal Collective’s “Oddsac” DVD movie yesterday, and did, I guess, the last thing the band wants: put it on my computer, listened to the music and almost entirely ignored the visuals while I got on with my work. I can say that first impressions of the music are extremely good, even in isolation – it totally works that way. I’ll report back when I’ve spent proper time with the whole package, but maybe some of you have already seen it and can file a report?

Also, someone hooked me up with this clip of the Magic Band in full flight, which I love, not least for the fact that Beefheart appears to be the straightest man on the stage. Check it out if you have a moment.
