YouTube Rodeo: Johnny Foreigner With Gareth Campesinos! "Criminals"
Oh like we weren't going to re-post this here. The video is a little blurrier than we typically like to post, but otherwise the quality is quite good: the sound actually remarkably listenablem the camera work as steady as events likely allowed. And then, of course, there's Gareth Campesinos! killing it alongside our heroes Alexei, Junior and Kelly. "Criminals" was a single from Johnny Foreigner's, ahem, criminally under-rated sophomore set Grace And The Bigger Picture. Both Johnny Foreigner and Los Campesinos! played Thursday night as part of Wichita Recordings' multi-night 10th anniversary celebration. And while we understand Los Campesinos!' performance was top-notch, after seeing this video we are actually sort of kicking ourselves for not dropping a portion of our life savings to get to England to see this. It's that good. Anyway, fingers crossed that the proposed Johnny Foreigner tour of the United States this fall actually comes together. And, of course, for those of you feeling a bit of deja vu, you are correct, this is not the first video you've seen with Gareth joining Johnny Foreigner. This is.
