The Orwells Rile Up Letterman, Part Two

    Mario Cuomo of The Orwells doesn't have a care, and double dare or not he is in a constant state of looking like he's about to be falling down the stairs. The group returned to The Late Show with David Letterman last night for a comparatively tame performance, charging through their song "The Righteous One" — whose lyrics pretty much describe the Cuomo swagger to a tee. The set ends with an excitedly anxious Letterman half laughing and wholeheartedly asking "is he alright?" as Cuomo — mustering the last shred of control it looks like he'll ever be able to muster — staggers to sit at the edge of the stage. Compared to the group's Late Night debut in January, during which Cuomo stumbled off the sound stage mid-song to collect himself on the guest couch, this performance was nearly square. Though it seems that Cuomo's bandmates are less enchanted by his dopey capers, the rest of us can't look away. It's like watching a car accident almost happen, again — but with a gnarly guitar riff to back it up. Letterman's oscillation between concern, admiration and fascination is worth a watch in itself.
