One of my rules on this blog is all music must be live. Listening to this Chet Faker live version of No Diggity is a revelation and more proof how a record company can mess with your music and market what they think is the right version. Well folks in my opinion the radio version can’t come close to this…

As Arcade Fire’s Reflector Tour comes to a close at the end of August in Montreal lets take a moment to remember just how good they have been in concert.  This is probably everyone’s favorite version of Ready to Start (that you can not purchase) and could be just one of those songs that defines what rock should always strive to be

A lesson on how to make a live video if there ever was one, the video was released on August 20, 2010, directed by Charlie Lightening and filmed at the band’s July 7, 2010 concert at the Hackney Empire in London.

Sidestepping expectations, the idea Vernon presented for this session was to provide a wildly different experience.

Recorded in AIR Studio’s Lyndurst Hall – a building that was originally a church and missionary school designed in 1880 by the great Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse (designer of the Natural History Museum) – Vernon was joined only by Carey, with the pair positioning themselves opposite one another at two grand pianos.
