Yo La Tengo‘s 1995 video for their song “Tom Courtenay” was added to YouTube. The HQ version of the video was shared as part of the 25th-anniversary reissue of their 1995 album, Electr-o-pura.

Matador Records will release the 25th-anniversary edition of Electr-o-pura on September 4 as part of the label’s Revisionst History series. Yo La Tengo’s Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew participated in a remote interview with Phil Morrison who directed the “Tom Courtenay” video. Here’s what the press release said about the original clip video:

Recollections are hazy, but we can say with certainty that the video was aired at least once on MTV’s 120 Minutes. After that, who knows? Maybe you saw it on a fifth-generation VHS bootleg. Maybe you squinted through a greatly bit-reduced version using RealPlayer. Well, squint no more! “Tom Courtenay” is now available to stream in crisp, clear, and glorious high definition.
