PYLON - M Train (live Part Time Punks Festival 2008)

Screen capture of Lyndsey Parker's footage

A random item from the AMH archive, before I start in again on all my old recordings....

"M Train" -- Live @ Part Time Punks Festival - 16 November 2008
[256kbit MP3]

One of the last times the band played live before the unfortunate passing of guitarist Randy Bewley a scant few months afterwards.

I had been upstairs catching Savage Republic, as I figured since I had tickets a couple of nights later at The Independent, I could catch Pylon then...however, after SR wrapped up, I was able to see them perform their encore, M Train.  After witnessing the excitement surrounding them,  I wish I had stayed downstairs for the entire set....but did see it in full a couple days later back in San Francisco (as well as a produce a recording) which will appear in due time.

There's some footage online, including an amusing one where someone jumps onstage to join Vanessa...but the audio quality is subpar, so I'll leave it to your web searching skills to find more of these.

Medium Medium (who had played with them at the first Part Time Punks fest) for the following year opened their set with a heartfelt tribute to Pylon, which you can watch here...the video's pretty compressed, but is a very good listen and a brilliant cover.
