Of Montreal’s Backstage Video Blog

So we sent a Flip Video to art-pop tearaways Of Montreal this week to get some footage from backstage at their show with Franz Ferdinand at Heaven, and crossed our fingers they’d send it back with some broadcastable video footage.

And what do you know, they gave us quite a bit. Once they’d given Kevin Barnes’ smoking jacket a test run they were all ours:

They talked riffs for our forthcoming Greatest Riffs Ever feature before getting themselves hyped up for the show (although we don’t quite know why they want us to bag up our mothers…)

And then made a big song and dance about coming ‘offstage’…

Before disappearing up into a secret loft and giving us a rendition of King Crimson‘s (excellent) track ’21st Century Schizoid Man’. Oddballs indeed…

Of Montreal are still touring the UK and you can catch them if you’re quick – dates here.
