Joelsy on Toolarmy pointed out to me a couple of videos from Sylvia Massey, which were filmed during the Undertow sessions. Highlights include:
- Henry Rollins recording his part for Bottom
- Maynard sporting a very dodgy looking beard. He kinda looks like Les Claypool.
- Some cool drumming from Danny
- One of Adam’s Pigs
- The guys shooting, beating the shit out and generally disassembling of an old piano. Using in Disgustipated I think.
- Maynard giving us a guided tour of the recording studios platinum album collection via a megaphone. I think he was on something that day….
- Motley Crue’s Devil Up Your Ass and Maynard shouting at the Devil
- The folk band recording the intro to
4 DegreesCrawl Away
Some great footage there, and certainly nothing I’ve seen before. Apparently there’s more to come too. Here’s the links:

Rarest of Rare! Doll Model from TOOL’S Prison Sex video
on ebay as of 01-11-07. Starting bid is slightly under $500 usd.
Very interesting. I don’t know what that folk band is in there for though. That’s not the intro to 4 degrees, at least not on my copy…
It’s very quiet at the beginning of 4 degrees, you may have to crank up the volume. I don’t actually think they’re playing the same tune there that they did for 4 degrees, but it’s the same style, and presumably the same band.
Sorry, my mistake, that should be Crawl Away not 4 Degrees. Thanks lf1033.
that’s the best piece of news from this site ever. but worth it.
Well I can now die happy. No seriously. I’ve now seen everything. Except Willem Dafoe in a g-string. And I think I can let that one slide.
Ehem. Part 3 has been put up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-Bo3hv94-o

“that should be Crawl Away”
Shit I’d never noticed that. I don’t play Undertow much and I guess I’ve just never had it that loud. Makes me wonder what else I’ve missed…
