The Postal Service ‘audition’ tapes

This rare Postal Service lead singer audition ‘footage’ from 2002 shows tryouts, including Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, Nate Mendel from Foo Fighters and perhaps most feasibly, Moby, selling their mortal souls for the gig of the hipster universe in front of a Sub Pop big cheese and Tamborello himself. This is undoubtedly the motliest crew of musicians you’ve seen since Pukkelpop seven years ago (spoiler alert: we’re talking Weird Al. On accordion).
