Brinsley Schwarz on German TV (March 6, 1975) Image: http://i.imgur.com/JdSXT.jpg width=800 Very
rare clips from an otherwise lost Rockpalast
appearance by the kings of Pub Rock
. These clips only survived because they were rerun on a morning TV show a few days later. The hostess and panelists are clearly having the time of their lives.
The highlights of this brief set are the Brinsleys' classic riff on Sweetheart
-era Byrds, "Country Girl", and an early performance of a recent composition by bassist Nick Lowe, a little ditty called "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, & Understanding".
"Love Is Gone"
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, & Understanding"
"Run Rudolph Run" (why is Chuck Berry's Christmas classic on a show from March?)

Unfortunately the classic if chaotic clip this comes from was removed from YouTube Image: http://i.imgur.com/apoQO.jpg width=800
