I saw this clip again recently on Jools Hollands 250th "Later" show celebration, and was reminded of just how good Scotland's finest K T Tunstall is, with her song "Black Horse and a Cherry Tree".

The producer is fascinated by her work with the loop machine pedal: This is mightily impressive, but don't let it distract you from the performance, which is terrific.

Suddenly I See she's pretty good with her band too.

In this context, "container" means "garbage container".

Yep, Container is a song featuring dumpster diving as a metaphor for life.

Used in an RPG session last night, here's a beautiful song about ... Genghis Khan. So, yeah.

I want to watch that show. I bet it's not available in any language I know.

Probably Reg's most successful album. It does have the occasional catchy tune on it. I have fond memories of using "Saturday Night" on a number of party tapes at the time. If people aren't dancing by the end of it, you're at the wrong party.

Just 'cuz I been mildly obsessed with these guys lately, and pretty quiet on the forum...

I present you, the original musical automata, Steam Powered Giraffe.

I considered getting into the kayfabe of the band, here, but...there's just so much. <_< So, let's leave it at - they're a band of robots (currently The Spine, Rabbit, and Hatchworth, but The Spine, Rabbit, and The Jon, in all of these videos*), plus a couple humans (Mr Reed (guitars and such) and Sam (drums...mostly), in all of these videos*)...who play music.

And a nice variety it is...

Let's start with Brass Goggles, which sort of introduces the band's story. (The fictional one involving robots, of course, not the real human one. >_>)
Then, we can pick up with Captain Albert Alexander. The interplay in this one gives a good idea of everybody's personalities.
Next up, Honeybee, the first song they did a proper video for.
And, finally, Automatonic Electronic Harmonics. Real interesting (to me) point about this one - Sam's not on drums, The Jon is. Sam's on guitar. Not long after this, Jon left the group and was replaced by Hatchworth, who is played by...Sam. I really wonder if that was deliberate. (I've asked in the comments to the video...hopefully one of the Bennett twins will answer me.)

I'd post more (or at least replace Honeybee with one I like better), but I want to stick to the ones on their official channel.

* The original lineup was Rabbit, Spine, Jon, and a female robot named Upgrade. Upgrade left not long after their first album and was not replaced. After Jon left, and Sam was promoted to robot, he was replaced on drums by a guy named Matt Smith. No, not the Doctor. But now I want a crossover like whoah.

Also, always remember - Plifterston New Pennsyltucky is a real city and state.
Can you hear me boy? Your devil is here!

Kirby Krackle is a self-described "nerd rock" band from Seattle. They do songs about superheroes, math, zombies, superheroes, video games, superheroes-- oh, and also superheroes. And their limited-animation videos are cool too.

A selection:

Secret Identity

Great Lakes Avengers (audio only but it's a fun song)

Ring Capacity, the fan-favourite unofficial Green Lantern anthem

https://play.spotify.com/album/7D3aWN7T70l3NomjjVJZWX The Cave OST. Excellent. "Enter the Knight" is one of my favorite tracks, I find it very reminiscent of Yuki Kaijura's Sis Puella Magica, as well as her other pieces Conturbatio and Decretum

The Internationale ain't got no swing, but Pete Seeger's got rhythm.
