Jim Shelley & Book Of Kills

Video Clips

I just plain forgot that I'd taken about 15 minutes of video of George, Garfield and me playing three songs during a practice! So now I've got to figure out if I can even upload videos to my server. Back in the day when I was on another server, that wasn't a problem; it could be easily accomplished. If you know anything about CDBaby and how to create streaming video files, let me know 'cause I'd like to put up two or three of them.

I would be remiss if I didn't note that psychedelic music pioneer Roky Erickson was born on this day in 1947. Happy 70th, Roky!

I would be equally remiss if I forgot to mention that the vastly under-appreciated Johnny Thunders was born on this day in 1952. I've always wanted to play "You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory", but I've never been able to interest anyone else in playing it.

I would be triply remiss if I didn't also mention that Ian Curtis was born on this day in 1956. Wow. What a trio those three guys make!

“I struggle between what I know is right in my own mind, and some warped 'truthfulness' as seen through other people's eyes who have no heart and can't see the difference anyway.” -- Ian Curtis
