As Rolling Stone reports, the film was shot by a fan named Eddie Vincent, who snuck a Kodak Brownie 8mm camera into the arena. "When my friends and I got to the Forum, I tucked it under my jacket," Vincent says in the introduction to the video. "There weren't any problems at the door back in those days. The seats were excellent, first row behind the stage. We were behind John Bonham's gong, so you couldn't really see him much, but the sound was great." (read more)

Baltimore alt-rockers isilme recently released their new video and single, "In the Dark", and to celebrate we asked Jayne McCullough to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

When I first listened to the guitar demo that Eric (guitarist, vocalist) had written, that would eventually turn into "In The Dark," there was a soft and yearning feeling that immediately jumped out. The first lyrics I wrote down, I was trying to describe that wonderful, terrifying sensation of finding yourself deeply in love with someone. That dreamlike moment when you wake up in the night and feel the weight of them next to you.
