The Null Device


I went to see Tripod at the Comedy Festival tonight. The show was OK; it wasn't bad, though wasn't as brilliant as I was expecting from what I heard about them. The songs were a bit like something the Doug Anthony Allstars might have done, only not quite as edgy or surreal (there was a bluegrass number about Britney Spears, and the song about not letting a dead body ruin one's romantic memories worked well); though the arguments between band members seemed more annoying than amusing. Though the encore, a cover of Radiohead's Paranoid Android, for three voices and one guitar, was worth the ticket price by itself.

Yep went to the same show. Dying to get hold of that cover, but not surprisingly no one on kazaa has it yet. Will ask Triple J to play it as no doubt they have it..

I managed to record it with my Archos Jukebox Recorder; though the end got cut off, presumably due to a bug in the new Rockbox firmware not flushing buffers to disk when switched off or somesuch.

Don't suppose you could email it to me or something?
