These Are the Savage Young Floor Models

Okay, not really so savage, but definitely Bleecker Street's finest.

The Floor Models. Live at the Other End Cafe. Greenwich Village, NYC. Sometime in 1982-83.

The song in the clip is called "Free Advice," and it was written by the great Andy "Folk Rock" Pasternack (front row, left). It's sung by the bass player (front row, right), some guy whose name rhymes with Sleeve Nimels.

In the interests of full disclosure, I should also add that this was actually recorded at JPs, a club across town from The Other End we played at a lot around the same time. We sounded the same in both rooms, however.
