I haven't listened to this in ages. Just pulled it out of the vault this morning...
This show was recorded at the (now defunct) Galaxy Club in Deep Ellum (now a veritable wasteland) in 1998. I recall the Galaxy Club being one of the worst shithole venues in Deep Ellum, although every once in a while they had a good show. Come to think of it, I don't have very many fond memories of any Deep Ellum clubs in the tail end of its heyday... Well, I suppose the Gypsy Tea Room had its moments...
This is a decent recording, with all tracks indexed. All material from their first release with the exception of the cover of T. Rex's "Chariot Choogle" (which appears on a tzadik comp) that Mike Patton declares is a Rage Against the "Latrine" song- clever!
*Note the pissed off rednecks who were there to see Dave Lombardo play metal. "PLAY SOME REAL MUSIC" and the bottles thrown in the trashcan near the recordist sometimes works as a bonus percussive instrument with this music.
The ridiculous play by play of events by yours truly at a tender and impressionable age of 23 is cringe-worthy...Recorded by Jason Jenkins.
