Bad news. The sprawling Cooler Than Jesus site is being shut, which means finding rare, live footage of bands like Killing Joke, Cop Shoot Cop, the Sisters of Mercy, Bad Brains, Lush and droves of other Flaming Pablum favorites will now be even tougher. You may remember I sang this site's praises back here. Here's their final word on the subject:
+++++The fine folks at blip.tv have deleted our account. And with it, all the hard work that went into making thousands of rare recordings globally available, hassle free and at no cost. Seeing how it literally took years to encode, edit and upload that stuff, we won't be going through this torturous process again. We hope you enjoyed these recordings while you could. Like all good things in life, this little treasure trove wasn't meant to last. 10/2012 Team Coolerthanjesus+++++
I have no punchline here. It's just a bummer. Pour one out.
