X-Amounts: Sneaker Pimps on KCRW

One of the great musical tragedies, as far as I'm concerned, was the departure of Kelli Dayton from Sneaker Pimps. Although the exact circumstances surrounding this split remain ambiguous, it is apparent that it resulted in a drastic change in direction for the group, and I'm unconvinced that it was for the better. It seems unthinkable to dispose of the voice beyond a song as immortal as "6 Underground," but a similar schism occurred following the equally incredible "Unfinished Sympathy." Although I inevitably align myself with Becoming X-era Sneaker Pimps, I must grudgingly give some credit to the group for a bold move, discordant as it is with my own tastes. But perhaps things have come full circle, as word on the Wiki is that their next album, whenever it's to come, features another female vocalist. Funny how that works out.

Anyhow, here's their KCRW set from November 2nd, 2000, which, like it or not, features Chris Corner on vocals (including "Low Place Like Home," which was originally sung by Kelli). Kudos to them for actually addressing the lineup change.
