Video of the day (Pointed Sticks - I'm Numb)

It's a rainy, dark and generally quite miserable morning in London, so what better way to brighten up ones commute to work than with some powerpop? Today, I opted for Pointed Sticks, a Canadian band who were originally around in the late 70's/early 80's. Apparently they are playing again after having reformed in 2006. Anyway, they are totally awesome. Think a more keyboardy Buzzcocks and you're not that far off.

Incidentally, they are the band that Cebe goes to watch (and ends up playing drums with) in Out Of The Blue, the film I wrote about yesterday. Here's that very scene, which contains a mixture of lip-syncing to a backing track and a bit of actual live recording.
