Review by Capricornholio

Capricornholio First set highlights are a great Moma (which is a little bit longer/funkier/jammier than the one from the night before), and the post DWD Ambiance -> Dog Faced Boy. The Disease itself is just OK, your typical 10-minute monotone shred fest - > light ambiance -> Disease Reprise. However, the ambient jamming following DWD proper is outstanding and the "->" Dog Faced Boy is perfect.

The Tweezer that opens the second set is just gorgeous and goes in many interesting directions without ever sounding meandering then dissolves into ambiance and quickly "->" into a super funky 15-minute 2001. Paired together these two make for one of the best jams of the whole 98 Europe run. The rest of the set is pretty standard then a typical (read great) Hood encore closes the show.

4 notes:
- This show is only 2:15 long, how about another jam for me?
- The FOB Schoeps recordings of the whole Europe are beautiful and clear
- Sweet Adeline is one of the better recordings of an unmic'd song I've ever heard. The small venue coupled with the the close proximity of the taper meant that they didn't have to crank their mic pres and the audience was (mostly) quiet and attentive (although you can hear people snapping away with their disposable cameras, remember those?)
- The assholes clapping annoyingly loudly and poorly during the quiet part of the Hood Jam: FUCK OFF!
