Here we have the ever-present B52s in their prime. The entire concert was captured on what appeared to be Black and White 16mm film. Hardcore fans have already seen this. The typical fan may not have. I can’t think of better way to celebrate National Quiche Lorraine Day, which is today!
The song appeared on their second major label release, Wild Planet.
I got a chance to see them a few years ago. They had a kick ass back up band. The three remaining members Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, Cindy Wilson held down the vocals like they were still in their 30s. It was like a celebration.
Sadly they are on their farewell tour now. If you get a chance to see them this year, take it.
A song never warmed up for them till the girls started yelping melodiously! Then the party was beginning! Yelp! Yelp! Then some good bongo and some harmony and BOOM! Another million seller! What a groovy band they were when they were young and the girl’s brother/guitarist still was alive and hadn’t died of AIDS
