Tapes 'n Tapes on Late Show with David Letterman

Amazing. I couldn't believe I was watching Tapes 'n Tapes on national television last night. The Ed Sullivan Theater. Man. They seemed a bit nervous for the first part of "Insistor", heck I was nervous for them, but the guys really nailed the second half of the song and put on an excellent performance in my opinion. Anyone else watch? How sick of T'nT are the indie kids going to act like they are now?

HERE is a pretty crap video of people at Hexagon Bar in Minneapolis watching Tapes 'n Tapes on Letterman. For a bit of nostalgia, HERE is the first EAR FARM post about the band from 20 October, 2005. Back then, hardly anybody knew who they were and nobody even knew EAR FARM existed. As such, HERE is the post that really got the ball rolling in music blog land. Do people still question whether or not blogs are pushing some bands into the realm of popularity the way radio used to? You ask for blog miracles Theo, I give you Tapes 'n Tapes.

Listen:
"Insistor"

Yeah, but you're missing the fact that they looked and sounded like amateur hour up there. It was really mystifying how bad it was.

Let the backlash begin. IT's so "uncool" to like tapes. Geez max, how could you like Tapes, they're so not the lovebitch-du-jour. If you ain't creaming yourself over that latest Icelandic opera-death-bathtub-calypso-punk band that GvB and Brooklyn Vegan have been pimping then you're obviously not going to cut it in the cut-throat world of uber-indie fandom. Got buy your Bon Jovi CD and leave the REAL listening to senior Hector here...
