Joel R.L. Phelps, "Who Can I Burn?"

I just bought the album 3, by Joel R.L. Phelps and the Downer Trio, via iTunes and (apart from some annoying sonic infidelities which I'm convinced are Apple's doing), I'm thoroughly enjoying it. This live concert video for the album's "Who Can I Burn?" (recorded at the Borderline in London in 2001) tells me two things: 1) Phelps is every bit the riveting performer in person that he is on record; and 2) London clubgoers are just as inconsiderate with their in-performance gabbing as their American counterparts are.
