YouTube Rodeo: Lilys' "Ginger" Live And Awesome
[Via Philebrity] Great indie rock song, or GREATEST indie rock song? We seriously ponder that. If Lilys leader Kurt Heasley hadn't also written the timeless and beautiful guitar dreamer "Claire Hates Me," or the entirety of the sublime full length Eccsame The Photon Band, it would be a slam dunk to call "Ginger" a crowning achievement. This clip was filmed in the '90s at Philadelphia's 3rd Street Jazz and Rock, which we believe has been defunct for many years. "Ginger" is the lead track on the now criminally out of print A Brief History Of Amazing Letdowns EP, which streeted in 1994. The rights to that EP, as well as Eccsame, apparently have disappeared into a legal vacuum left after Spin-Art Records folded, meaning legitimate reissues of these incredibly important records may never happen. Sad.
