Watch Video of Victrola Rotor Oilmen’s Bill Doss Tribute

Here’s video captured by an audience member at the Athens Music Awards show last night of Victrola Rotor Oilmen (it’s an anagram of—oh, you know) paying tribute to their dearly departed brother/spirit guide Bill Doss.

The group performed two Doss-penned songs: “A Sunshine Fix” and “Love Athena.” The two classic Olivia Tremor Control tunes appeared on the 2000 rarities collection Presents: Singles and Beyond. And, though the occasion was somewhat solemn, last night, with of Montreal’s Bryan Poole tackling Doss’ guitar and vocal parts, they sounded fucking great.

(And another angle from the side of the stage captured by Flagpole‘s Larry Tenner.)
