“What Institution Are You From?”
Live in Providence, 1996
I kinda burst into smiles when I found this earlier — not only is footage of Helium extremely scarce, but OMG, it’s a live performance of what could be the most disturbingly sexy song I ever loved as a teenager! (Sorry, Tricky!)
Automatic Helium reblog. For the Whedon people: let’s have Summer Glau star in Mary Timony in Helium, the movie, right? (And is St. Vincent going to end up being Helium for the 00s? Different in many ways and also similar in some, like guitar-awesomeness.)
During college I was sitting in the Someday Cafe in Somerville, listening to The Dirt of Luck and writing in my notebook, watching the people pass by heading towards the sold-out Blonde Redhead show. And then - then! - I saw Mary Timony walk in and I went up to her and was all, dude, I’m listening to your CD right now! It was very nerdy.
