Matt Mahaffey playing with himSelf
Check out this recently uploaded video of Self’s Matt Mahaffey playing a one man band version of AC/DC’s “Back In Black” on drums and Omnichord. I’ve never heard an Omnichord run through guitar distortion before, but the effect is extremely rocking. After I watching more live Self videos, I realize he’s been using them for years on songs like Trunk Fulla Amps (live) and others off of Gizmodgery. I’ve been looking for a cheap Omnichord for several years for circuit bending, but now I’m really jonesin’ for one.
The video is an excerpt from Self’s upcoming DVD “sElf- Live at Spaceland Acoustic”. There aren’t many more details of the dvd’s release, which originally went on pre-sale in April, but some believe the hold up could be concerning copyright issue’s over Matt’s AC/DC cover. Of course the rest of the show footage will be acoustic versions of Self songs, not Omnicover songs… which would be a cool dvd on it’s own.
Also; previously posted video of Beck live on the Sarah Kutner Show with Matt.
