Video: The Auteurs - Lenny Valentino (live on Later...with Jools Holland)
I've spoken about the Auteurs before in an article featuring some mp3s from their seminal 1993 debut New Wave, but today thought i'd highlight something from another album. Sooo this is a video of Lenny Valentino performed live on Later...with Jools Holland back in (I believe) early 1994. It would be the first single from the bands second album, Now I'm A Cowboy which would be released in May of that year. It's probably the bands worst album, paling in comparison to New Wave (in fact it sounds like an ill thought out imitation of that album) and to the classic Albini produced followup, At Action Park. However Valentino is a pretty classic piece of songwriting, and it's nice to see such a great band on what, nowadays, is so often an awful show.
Hope people are enjoying the video downloads i've been putting up, because i've got a bunch of good Top Of The Pops performances from the likes of Mansun, Suede and a few others that should show up on here soon, so keep those eyes peeled.
