New Fountains Of Wayne Live Video – “Radiation Vibe”

The post Traffic And Weather activity from FoW has been mostly limited to songs for The Colbert Report and spots for L.L. Bean, but it appears the NJ power poppers are ready to indulge in some retrospective activity. There’s a spread of shows lined up around the Northeast the next few weeks with no new material, in addition to a new live DVD titled No Better Place: Live In Chicago. It was filmed in ’05, ergo a setlist that spans the sweetspot from Fountains Of Wayne to Welcome Interstate Managers. From that set, here’s a take on the sugared hooks and harmonies of “Radiation Vibe.” Re: the guy at 1:57 – I didn’t realize people danced like that at Fountains’ shows.
