I didn’t get a chance to see The Magnetic Fields when they played two shows at The Vic earlier in the week, but I’ve been following them since the first time I played “100,000 Fireflies” on WHPK in 1991. Since that time I have purchased virtually every release that featured the name Stephin Merritt (The Soundtrack to Eban and Charley, anyone?) including the most recent The Magnetic Fields record called Love at the Bottom of the Sea. I was fortunate enough to see them perform 69 Love Songs at The Old Town School of Folk Music as well as a triumphant show at The Town Hall in New York City. I went to The Siskel Center to see a screening of the wonderful movie Strange Powers and I’ve read 69 Love Songs, LD Beghtol’s contribution to the 33 1/3 Series. So yes, I’m a fan. But even all that time spent with The Magnetic Fields did not prepare me for this video of Sam Davol playing the cello inside of The Wiener Circle.
