YOUTUBE: Steady As She Goes By Shellac

So, check out this here youtube vid from Shellac.

Watch: Steady As She Goes

1. Video and audio are out of sync (on purpose maybe??), and the audio sounds better than most youtube vids.
2. Not sure who produced this, but there's an intro to something by The Ponys that comes in at the end.
4. Don't look directly into Albini's teeth.

Daaaaamn. I had no idea that Shellac vid even existed. I'm too accustomed to their media blackout to even search for such things. Thanks, Bob.

If you haven't figured it out yet, it's from the Burn to Shine video series, Volume 2 (Chicago). You can check it out here on Wiki.
