I LOVE the frantic gestures to the sound technician.

this is a fierce performance. at moments, it had a lot more going for it than the recording on "Speaks Vols.", IMHO.

This popped into my RSS feeds. I know it is available at WQXR|Videos; but, like the Beethoven 7th when it pops on in the car radio, it is nice that this has been brought forward,.

Thanks. I knew it! I recognized that unique delivery from hearing him on I think, "Fresh Air".

I appreciate the confirmation.

Richard,

The voice was emanating from Nico's computer. It was Antony Hegarty, of Antony and the Johnsons.

Who is the un-credited singer? If it is a recorded voice, whose voice?
