I Want My New York Noise

One of the things the Internet is great at is preserving things that never should have ended in the first place. For every time the Internet aides in the discovery of a new fact, current event, or something relevant in general, there are at least a dozen other times that it serves as a comfort blanket/black hole of nostalgia and ubiquitous reference library for the past. At least that is how I explain away the all too often scenario of suddenly realizing I have spent 2 hours watching skate punk videos from junior-year-of-high-school-era on YouTube.

New York Noise is one of those great things that got cut short by reality but is now being slowly resurrected by the good archival graces of the world wide web. Having aired on NYC TV from 2003 to 2009 (or according to loveable producer Shirley Braha, 5 years and 8 months – the same amount of time as the original run of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air) New York Noise brought us a twice-weekly hour of amazing music public television covering every indie band that even remotely thought about setting foot in the tri-state area.

Slowly but surely, clips from the 89 episode run of the show are being uploaded to an online collection here. You can also browse through old photos and playlists featuring hundreds of bands like the Hold Steady, Panda Bear, Mae Shi, The Dodos, the list goes on and on. Actually, I wish I could say the list was as endless as it feels, but I guess that’s what our friend, the Internet is here for.
