Matador's <strike>Sordid</strike> Spectacular History Continued : The Mysteries Of U-MV170 Pt. II

Because pt. 1 was so well received (well, over at the Sonic Youth message board, anyway), it's for yet another trip down memory lane, this one in honor of Margaret Fiedler's recent guitar heroics filling Bruce Gilbert's Air Jordan's in Wire.

Moonshake - "Secondhand Clothes".  Directed by Julie Hermelin.  From the album 'Eva Luna' (1992, licensed from Too Pure).
