Video: Much improved version of Arcade Fire playing Still Ill at the MEN Arena

At the Arcade Fire gig at the MEN Arena on Saturday I took a video of them playing The Smiths’ Still Ill and posted it on YouTube the same night. It got linked to by all manner of blogs, including Stereogum, but the sound and video quality were piss poor to say the least, although this didn’t stop it racking up nearly 3,000 views in just a five days.

I found a decent quality mp3 of the song and, using all sorts of technical jiggery-pokery that I barely understand, I somehow managed to create this much improved version of the video. Enjoy.

    I was the person who recorded the show and I was stood to your right, in front of the keyboards. I’m glad you used the MP3 to improve your video. Cheers!

    Dedication’s what you need…

    Many thanks for providing the mp3, PABBY. I was waiting on a friend who recorded the gig from the seats but he’s been too busy this week to sort the audio out so I used yours instead. If his version’s even better then there could be a third version of the vid.

    Beth, don’t kid yourself. He did all that work for himself so he could watch this over and over again cause he fancies Regine.
