Watch Jim O’Rourke Play Bad Timing Tunes Unplugged In Tokyo

By Tom Breihan / January 11, 2012

Last month, the increasingly elusive avant-garde master Jim O’Rourke, now rocking an impressive crazy-old-man beard, played a few songs for onlookers at Dyson Lab Ginza, in his adopted hometown of Tokyo. Below, we’ve got two videos of him playing two sprawling acoustic-guitar instrumentals, both of them taken from his 1997 album Bad Timing. Below, check out the mesmeric things that the man can do with one acoustic guitar and a few foot pedals.

“There’s Hell In Hello But More In Goodbye”:

“94 The Long Way”:

God bless you, Flipcam-wielding Japanese people.
