John Cale and James Dean Bradfield - Ready for Drowning

For any lucky New Yorkers reading the New York Public Library For The Performing Arts is having a free screening of the wonderful John Cale documentary Beautiful Music the night of March 8th.
This very rare and moving Marc Evans documentary from 2000 features Cale and other Welsh musicians in the studio performing many great songs. The highlights for me are Catatonia's Cerys Matthews tremendous reading of Cale's I Keep A Close Watch and both performances with Manic Street Preacher James Dean Bradfield.
Here is one of those performances as a preview and if you happen to live in New York don't miss this.
