Live music (well sort of) in Brooklyn Heights circa 1979

The Speedies, \”Let Me Take Your Photo\” (1979)

With BHB entry about the Villagers’ Conor O’Brien, as well as the ongoing conversation about amplified music/noise coming from Pier 1, I thought people might find this interesting.  This clip was brought to my attention by a former Brooklyn Heights resident in another social networking medium (yes, there is something other than the Brooklyn Heights Blog).  My friend explained that most of the members of the band were from Brooklyn and attended Brooklyn Friends.  So apart from being filmed on the promenade, there is an additional connection to our neighborhood.

    Good song. Sort of reminds me of this roughly contemporaneous one:

    Claude: Somehow I never thought of you as a Brooklyn Punk appreciator. This lends a whole new dimension to your persona. In reference to the song that you posted the link to, it is interesting that most of the comments are in German, but the song is sung in English.

    I remember these guys. And of course, they have a website:

    Unfortunately I am not sure which members went to Friends.

    It just goes to show that I am not a very well-prepared journalist.
