Video: Evan Dando - Thrasher, Piss Bottle Man & Tom Waits - God's Away On Business

Thought i'd stick up some videos today. First up is a rather obscure clip I found of Evan Dando playing Neil Young's Thrasher to what looks like a gothed up KT Tunstall. Bit odd, but interesting to hear him covering Neil anyway. Second is a rather amusing clip of Evan singing lead vocals on a track from Mike Watts' legendary Ball-Hog Or Tugboat album, a 1995 solo record from the Minutemen/fIREHOSE mainman which featured:
Dave Grohl, Eddie Vedder, J. Mascis, Cris Kirkwood, Curt Kirkwood, Gary Lee Connor, Krist Novoselic, Nels Cline, Zander Schloss, John Strome, Anna Waronker, Rachel Haden, Petra Haden, Frank Black, Stephen Perkins, Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, Steve Shelley, Henry Rollins, Mark Lanegan, Mike D, Flea, Pat Smear, Dave Pirner, Kathleen Hanna, Bernie Worrell, Adam Horovitz and many many moooooore...
Definitely worth tracking down if you're in any way interested in the early 90s alt. rock scene. Third and finally is a very lovely video for Tom Wait's God's Away On Business, one of the highlights of 2002's Blood Money. I 'heart' Tom Waits + Ostriches + Brecht/Weill angry diatribes.
