The show was pretty sweet- Tobacco played the mysterious ( fresh hex/Grape Areo/ Not sure) Beck song- but it didn't have the vocals- he just played synth for the notes that beck sings, and they did some variation live with circuit bending and breaks and whatnot. They had amazing screen shots shown in the background though- of like crazy 80's infomercials and E.T. porno where he licks his glowing finger and all these random people are doing ET in the rear, and just weird old aerobics videos and they had one shot of this weird 80's porno where they had one of those lazy suzan tables with a hole cut out in the center and there was a dick in the center and all these people were spinning aorund this lazy susan, it was probably one of the most hillarious things I have seen. I think the beck circa '92/'93/ Midnite vultures era would have approved highly.
I recorded a really shitty version of it on Garage band from my laptop speakers and have it on itunes but don't know how to upload/where to. Might be worth waiting until a leak comes out. I am going to see Tobacco tonight, and Im bringing a tape recorder. I hope to cop a live version of the new songs? ( as much as a recording of becks voice is live.. lol...)
The tobacco dude stood up there with a couple laptops and a guitar and he had a neon pink vocorder thing he sang into. They never said anything to the crowd and they never broke between the songs so it felt like they were kind of pissed haha and just "Dj'ing". But otherwise it was heavy shit. And they seemed mysterious ( wore masks and such...) I guess their video complication guy is named 'Beta Carnage' and most of their vids are on you tube, so hillarious.
