Riff of the Ages w/ F. Sean Martin – Ep10

March 1, 2011 |  by 900Bats  |  Music, Riff of the Ages, Videos

The tenth episode of this thrilling new series is here! It was February 9th, 1964 and F. Sean Martin was doing some light janitorial work for fun. Nothing pleased him more than a shiny, 99.99% germ free stage. One that you could eat a few sliders off of. Or some crisp, moist carrot sticks.

He came across a guitar, and because he is the best at guitar he decided to tune it. It took him a minute or two, as you can see from this recently discovered footage.

Funny piece of pop culture trivia, the band that performed later actually had to play their show twice, because when the camera operator pressed the record button, he was actually stopping the recording. It was reversed. (Which is why this footage exists of F. Sean tuning the guitar before the show)

Alex Tarrant shot this gallery at Friday’s Great American Music Hall event in SF.

Friday night Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, Rob Sonic, DJ Big Wiz, and DJ Clydescope (aka Your Heart Breaks), played to a sold out SF crowd. New Hail Mary Mallon songs were performed. New Kimya Dawson songs were performed. Kimya and Aesop performed new songs together. There was a pinata. There were large, yard inflatables. Clyde wore a green bow tie.

The stage set created by Alex Pardee, Jeremy Fish, and Robert Bowen, was later thrown into the audience.

Ginormous THANKS to everyone who made this event possible. Fun was had by all.

Tits Up!

Riff of the Ages w/ F. Sean Martin – Ep08

February 10, 2011 |  by 900Bats  |  Music, Riff of the Ages, Videos

The eighth episode of this thrilling new series is here! On May 18, 1980, F. Sean Martin heard that Mount Saint Helens in Washington was erupting, and he wanted to see if he could aurally enhance the eruption with his guitar.

Turns out you could hardly hear the guitar, but he had the frequent flyer miles on Pan-Am to use before they expired, and he likes to record himself in crazy settings playing guitar. It was an avoid-losing-win situation.

The seventh episode of this thrilling new series is here! On August 8th, 1969, F. Sean Martin traveled to rural New York and played his loud-ass guitar in the middle of a dairy farm.

He was going to play there the next week, but he had to get over to the west coast of California to plow the trough for the first ever internet connection between UCLA and Stanford. Back in 1969 if you wanted a trough plowed precisely, and on time, you called F. Sean Martin. Everybody knew it.
