And part 2 - will someone kindly yell me WTF the digital clapboard is doing in there. Was is there actual intention to release all of the footage as a doco or something?

EDIT - nevermind - obviously it was "for" SH

I just noticed this comment from Barrett on the Jerky Floaty post too...

VGMusic Explorers - 5 months ago
So where is that Dave Grohl/Foo Fighters Boxet of unreleased material. He has plenty of it apparently. 

Laundry Room Studio - 3 weeks ago (late Jun 17)
Believe me I want to put that box set out as well. There's almost 40 songs!

I love Barret. He needs to keep buttering Dave up to get these released!

Yeah he's told me the same thing a couple of times, after this catch up session there definitley seems intent between them to put more out.

Well curiously it was credited as 'Wasting Time' in the initial doc credits, but evidently he does sing 'slackers password'. Either way if they've given it a new name it does lend even more credence to an official release!

Also if you look closely you'll notice something else interesting, they appear to have been watching unseen footage of them in the studio, you can see a still frame of Nate and Will in what looks like Robert Lang briefly at 1:20. Definitely video because it has a timestamp on it from a camcorder.

Oh and actually, he explains the title change in a comment

I think what happened was that I wrote "wasting time" on the actual 1/2' inch reel of tape when we recorded the song (just going by the chorus), but I just recently found the lyrics and the song was titled "Slackers Password"

From the story Dave tells during the I'll Stick Around video, it sounds like there was already major record label interest in a Dave project, either solo or with a band, even before the Foo Fighters demo was recorded. He stops short of saying that was the main reason he went into Robert Lang Studios to rerecord enough of his material to fill a record, but it's a reasonable assumption from the way Dave's telling the story. Unless Dave's getting his chronology confused, it's aslightly different version of how the Foo fighters began than we've heard before.

I'm wondering why Barrett is playing ISA from a taped interview and not the master. Does he not have the master?

Well I assume it was for that purpose, so they could cover the story of it being aired and what they discussed. Can't see any reason he'd not have the master.

It is weird though, how everything about this ISA demo just passed us all by. Nobody recorded it, or if they did, it never circulated. Nobody talked about it, nobody knew about the significance of it being aired and record labels getting wind of it. Very bizarre.

That's the very first time I've ever read 'I'll Stick Around' as an acronym.

I updated the relevant sessions for this on my site, FYI

Allister Lobb, April 1992 session
November 8th 1992 session

Yes, he was producer on that session, but it's not really tied to his solo demo sessions that Barrett is referring to. The stuff he recorded with him between 88 and 95.

The thing with 'I'm Alone Again' is it is already out 'somewhere' in better quality. The woman who traded it out, Liz, had a DAT and dubbed off cassettes, so the first people to get them had first gen cassettes which should sound pretty good. However the current copies out there are from a much more generated tape. It's claimed third, but it sounds more like fourth or fifth to me.

Barrett, you're probably reading this. Do upload these videos to YouTube! (though there may well be a plan to release them officially, as some form of Foo documentary in the future. But as they didn't make 'Back and Fourth' then who knows...)

Watered It Down is my favorite so far from these outtake videos. Mainly because the song is so cheesy. Slackers Password sounds killer though.

Remember we do already have the full instrumental version of 'Watered It Down'

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ftT83hlA45o

Anyway a few times Barrett has mentioned "about 40 songs", here is what I can come up with based on what I know

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DEx6SkbXUAETrzw.jpg:large

That is 35, so perhaps a few more we don't know about.

I'm totally pulling this out of my ass, but I wonder if it's possible Linus and Lucy turned into Weenie Beenie.
