If you're at all into the Shaggs or at least aware of them, then sometime in the last 24 hours someone you know may have hepped you to a post at Dangerous Minds with old footage of the Shaggs live. I just saw snippets of this morning before heading out, bookmarking it to check it out later. And just like that, it was gone. Pulled for copyright something or other. 23,000 hits will do that. But the article over there at Dangerous Minds, by Howie Pyro, is a good read regardless. If you don't know the Shaggs, read the article and check the songs below. See if you feel the fuss.
The rest of you jaded fucks, guess what? That video is still up, and has been for a good year, just without sound, which is likely why the one posted at Dangerous Minds is gone. The music was overdubbed and not synched anyway. The soundless version might still be up because maybe it was the actual music that got the other one pulled. But if I was you, and at all interested, I'd check it now.
