I just watched a video of 21 Tandem Repeats playing their hit "Fuse Lit Bombs" at a restaurant last month. I regret missing that show. Super Robertson told me it was one of his better gigs. The video is murky, even murkier than the official Factory-issued Joy Division video. There wasn't much stage lighting at the place. You can just make out the humanoid brown/black forms of SR and WB. The song is worth a listen, though, and it's a fine performance made even more impressive by the fact that they could find the right notes in the darkness. Jeff Healey couldn't have done any better.
