The first song on Chevelle’s first record, Point #1, is an intro of sorts to the album’s eponymous title track. “Open” is about 2 minutes long, has no lyrics, and is a simple, garage-bandy sort of thing. We love it.
We created the video with Windows Live Movie Maker. It was a very lazy effort and yet it still took us over an hour to synchronize the music and the sketch we did one boring day on our smart phone (and yet the video doesn’t sync as well after loading it into Youtube…bah!). The last image is of Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah. The Hoodoos are mind-blowing. There’s a gallery below for your pleasure.
By the way, for our European readers (and we seem to get a lot of them — not sure why, but, hey, thank you), this is where you go when you’re done with New York or L.A. or New Orleans or Miami or all of the other destinations you’ve heard about ad nauseam. Bryce Canyon has stuff you’ve never seen before. Created by an ancient field of massive sand dunes that eventually compressed into sandstone and oxidized (lots of iron in that them there soil), it’s a striking illustration that even dry, desert-like areas can be beautiful. Incidentally, we noted during our visit that the word must already have gotten out to the Germans. You couldn’t throw a ground squirrel in any direction without hitting a Deutschetourist. “Aufgepasst, Meine Herren!” So, willkommen and we say to you: Eine kleine nachtkopf und bitte standhous ist grosse! Well, that about sums up the danger of letting loose people that only take a half semester of German in high school. Vielen, herzlichen Dank. Oh, and thanks also to the Internet we get to be even more irresponsible with just a handful of phrase searches.Wars start with this sort of thing.
