Today’s Mystery Date will work a bit differently than how we’ve conducted these in the past. Rather than post an “unmarked” mp3 for you to identify, I’m posting a screen capture from a video. Excluding Townsman E. Pluribus Gergely, who chose this frame for analysis in our recent long night’s work, the first Townsperson who can identify the video from which this screen capture appears will not only win an actual musically relevant PRIZE but, more importantly, can claim the top rock nerd honors on our most recent Last Man Standing, on bands that have employed two drummmers.

Are you ready for our Mystery Date? For those who feel they can handle the full weight of what’s to follow…

Identify at your own risk!

    I’m going to take a wild guess & say that it’s from the video from “A Good Heart Is Hard To Find” by Feargel Sharkey.

    Diskojoe, YOU HAVE CORRECTLY IDENTIFIED TODAY’S MYSTERY DATE! The knowledge of Townsfolk never fails to amaze me. A musically relevant gift will be sent your way! (Thanks, by the way, for the musically relevant gift you recently sent me. I’m digging it!)

    I always liked that song (written by Maria McKee), but man the production and especially the video is like an 80s time capsule:


    Spot the pointy bass!

    Man, I feel like I really jacked that one into the Green Monster seats! I remember watching that video in the Undertones documentary (which I recommend highly) & I was amazed how craptastically ’80s it was & how the budget probally equalled all the Undertones’ albums.

    It’s also nice to know that you received my gift. I was digging it myself last night.
