Killer early footage of Wendy O. Williams and The Plasmatics tearing up CBGB

Killer early footage of Wendy O. Williams and The Plasmatics tearing up CBGB | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

A recently uploaded video features some of the earliest footage of Wendy O. Williams and the Plasmatics, performing March 1st, 1979 at CBGB, doing their song “Tight Black Pants” from their first LP, New Hope For the Wretched. 


The video below comes to us from Paul Tschinkel, who recorded it for his punk and new wave cable TV show, Inner-Tube, which ran for ten years on Manhattan Cable. 


We’ve written about Tschinkel and Inner-Tube here before. This is priceless historical footage and after watching I find myself saying the same thing I say after viewing any of Paul Tschinkel’s amazing YouTube uploads: “please show us the rest!”

The B-52s take you on a tour of Athens, GA in 1989 

The B-52s take you on a tour of Athens, GA in 1989  | SongsSmiths | Scoop.it

As part of the promotional efforts for Cosmic Thing, the now-quartet made themselves available to MTV’s Tim Sommer for a tour of their hometown of Athens, Georgia, which, with the exploding popularity of REM, was rapidly becoming a well-known trope even for casual music fans. the gang start out at the “Hot Corner,” the intersection of Hull and Washington where the Bluebird Café stood at that time but had previously been the location of a “natural foods” restaurant called the Eldorado where Fred Schneider had once worked as a waiter.


 I’ve always wondered why the B-52s included a tribute to third base on 2007’s Funplex, and now I know what “Hot Corner” is a reference to. Thanks, MTV! Touring the college town in (what else?) a convertible, the band passes the Georgia Theatre, where the B-52s played on May 20, 1978, and February 2, 1979.


 Interestingly, they also pass a courthouse, which prompts a comment from Kate Pierson that that was where she got divorced….
