Bloc Party Take-Away Show

I just saw one of the most amazing videos on vimeo... Kele from Bloc Party was coaxed into singing a song outside of a Paris pub. Singing with a sore throat he performed an accoustic version of 'This Modern Love,' an amazing love ballad. It is incredible... That's all I can say, I can't do it justice... Just watch.

Bloc Party, 'This Modern Love' - A Take Away Show from La Blogotheque on Vimeo.

It was on an October night, in Paris. We went to a pub, made some noise outside with a German band. Kele, Bloc Party's singer, went out. We asked him to sing. He said no. We asked again, he said 'yes but'. Then, we asked again...

Here it is, just one song, an old song, played acoustic for the first time. From Bloc Party, a Take Away Show.

Produced by La Blogothèque
Directed by Colin Solal Cardo
Sound by François Clos

Here's the regular version of 'This Modern Love' performed live, you be the judge. Which is better?

Seeing them live in 2007 was one of the best concerts I've ever been to, hands down. I think I have almost every one of their songs...
