The video for new single Taken For A Fool is finally here it was directed by Laurent Briet and has some really cool special effects. Also has a lot of footage of the guys messing around and generally being adorable. Nikolai/Julian prom pose? Best thing ever.
The Strokes played Le Grand Journal live at Cannes tonight, nice seeing the band playing with the sea in the background and the sun slowly setting.
Plus Julian did a rather confused but cute interview
You can also watch it on the Canal website
The Strokes played Jools Holland tonight, performing Under Cover of Darkness and Taken For A Fool. You’re So Right will be featured on the extended edition of the show on Friday
Under Cover of Darkness
Taken For A Fool
You’re So Right
The Strokes played what sounded like an epic concert at Madison Square Garden. Not only was the set list amazing but Elvis Costello joined them for Taken For A Fool, Albert played keyboards on Games, they played songs like Ask Me Anything which I thought we might not hear again. Judging from the fan reports it was an amazing show worthy of such an legendary and massive venue.
These were taken from the Youtube videos they are not proper bootlegs but I figured I would share them for now and hope we get a high quality full show soon.
