I’ve never seen this clip of Elvis Costello & The Attractions playing “I Can’t Stand Up For Falling Down” before. It’s from a 1980 appearance on England’s Kenny Everett Show. I’ve never heard this version before. Is it an outtake or recording they made especially for lip-synching on the show?
We ran the following clip, also from the Kenny Everett Show, some time ago. If memory serves it was another video-only mix. I’d love to find a straight audio clip of this version of Nick Lowe‘s “So It Goes”:
I know we’ve also seen some Rolling Stones videos with the boys lip-synching to alternate mixes. What’s the story behind these mixes? Does this practice still happen? Has anyone ever begun compiling a list of such videos? Does anyone know where we might download audio of these alternate, video-only mixes? Is this a job for Rock Town Hall?
