My homeslice Chris Gray in Houston did a comprehensive video post looking at Todd Rundgren's production and recording life. But since Rundgren will be dropping in at the Pageant tonight here in town, I thought I'd see his YouTube gems and add a few more -- after the jump. Feel free to email or comment with other gems as well.
Psychedelic Furs' "President Gas," live in London 1982 (taken from 1982's Forever Now)
Bad Religion, "New America" (Rundgren produced 2000's The New America)
The Pursuit of Happiness, "I'm an Adult Now" (a long-lost alt-rock hit from 1988's Love Junk)
Rundgren produced Bourgeois Tagg's hit "I Don't Mind at All." The video isn't embeddable, but I did find an insane video of him sitting in with the California '80s rockers from the Bammies.
XTC, "Earn Enough for Us" (from 1987's Skylarking, and my favorite XTC song)
