We’d never played Sledgehammer before, so we listened to a minute of it, Trey printed out the words and called it live. All single, unedited takes. Love this song. As Sos said, “We Rage’d it!”
Howard Stern recently asked Angus Young if rock was dead. Angus laughed and pointed out that AC/DC started when rock had been declared dead…in the late 1970′s.
Another masterpiece by Kevin Peterson! Kevin and Will Dearborn film just about everything The Hang does in the studio (and out). Featuring Trey Green, Jamie Douglass, Nick Campbell, and Jon Sosin. We’ve also got Kyle Gass, John Spiker, and John Konesky of Tenacious D, Dave Bianco from Dave’s Room, the offensively attractive ladies of music videos past: Cynthia Kirchner, Marlana Carter, Mercedes Brito, Raegan Payne, Katie Middleton (the actress, not the British mom), The Beave, and more.
The Hang recording the song! What you see is what you hear:
We’re extremely proud of the way we record – live, full takes. Everything you hear is real.
This is Jamie, our ridic drummer, on his first take for Graduate (the verb), which we used, unedited, in full, in the final studio version. Watch him go!
From The Hang’s self-titled 2013 release, this is Bendy Bend. All footage you see is the actual recording of the song. Please watch in HD! You may have to click on that little gear symbol on the lower right and pick 720 or 1080 to get it. Looks way better that way. Video shot by Kevin Peterson and Will Dearborn, edited by Kevin Peterson.
Figured out the Netflix rating system:
5 Stars: Guaranteed to like it if it’s a genre you dig. And you’ll probably get to see at least one explosion, someone naked, and/or a flock of mythical creatures, or if it’s Peter Jackson, a flock of naked, exploding, mythical creatures.
4 Stars: 4 Stars is like a C+; Pass. Good to go.
3 Stars: Usually a failed attempt at a 5 star. Great cast, badly made film. Some insomniacs like it, as well as people who like staring at celebrities, even if their dialogue is almost entirely narrating the stupid plot.
2 Stars: 2 Stars is like giving it an F. No one actually likes it.
1 Star: A hate-rating. Bad enough to inspire revenge. Viewers stopped watching and hate-rated it.
0 Stars: So bad that viewers stopped the movie before it ended, abandoned the rating system, Netflix, and the TV, and probably started reading or even went outside.
More from our December, 2012 show at Arlene’s Grocery in New York.
An excerpt from our exceptionally drunken performance in New York City at Arlene’s Grocery. This is Midnight Special, a cover of a 19th century prison folk song, made popular by the original rocker, Lead Belly.
