Q of D May 23


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon all, I'm recovering at work after the JSB/GTB fiasco last night here in Calgary, which blew my mind....just thought I'd throw a topic out to decrease the boredom of my painful Friday afternoon, so

What is your favourite released live show? (No collaberations, ie. Plasma)

I would have to say mine is Deep Banana Blackout's "Rowdy Duty", this is a must listen for all.

Have a goodnsafe weekend all.

Violent Femmes "Viva Wisconsin" has been in heavy rotation in my car for three weeks now.


Roller approved, Roller recommended.

Obviously you guys haven't listened to Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit. Their first release is a self titled live album and is by far the best live album I have ever heard. It's not just that the band is awesome, or that the performance is killer, or even that the sound is excellent, it's because it's also their first album. Now who has ever done that?

In case you're wondering, Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit is:

Col. Bruce Hampton - lead vocals, guitar

Apt. Q258 - drums

Oteil Burbridge - bass

Matt Mundy - electric mandolin

Jimmy Herring - guitar

Count Mbutu - congas

Chuck Leavell - piano, organ

If you don't know this album you have to check it out.

Ike, good call!!! I almost forgot about Col. Hampton and ARU, haven't listented to that one in ages but I believe you've inspired me to do so tonight.

I don't know if you've heard the Frogwings album mentioned above, but that's another case of a first (and in their case, only) album being a live one... and coincidentally there's some serious line-up overlap with ARU:

Butch Trucks - drums

Derek Trucks - guitar

Marc Quinones - percussion

Otiel Burbridge - bass

Jimmy Herring - guitar

Kofi Burbridge - keyboards and flute

John Popper - harp and vocals


- M.
