12 Hours is Forever

Here’s to posterity.

Rhapsody filmed and recorded Fucked Up’s already-legendary 12 Hour Show last month at Rogan in New York City (and pulled a “Where’s Waldo” with their logo – see if you can spot it!). Soon, they’ll make much of the show available to the world via streaming video and audio, as well as cuddly MP3 downloads. More on that shortly.

In the meantime, relive the magic of the longest day of our lives with powerful takes on The Chemistry of Common Life standouts “Black Albino Bones”, “Twice Born” and “Crooked Head”:

The New Pornographers – file under: mutiny, furries

Our friends at Super Deluxe bring us the long-awaited, oft-rumored, Fozzie Bear-approved video for the New Pornographers’ Challengers standout “Mutiny, I Promise You”.

Part of the hilarious Penelope: Princess of Pets series, this is one rock video that’s wholesome fun for the whole family. Sort of.
