Review by Fathership

Fathership A very hot Melt opener sets the tone for this great show. The rest of the first set is pretty much average/slightly above average save for the killer Divided Sky. In set two the band starts cooking with gas. You'll want to take a shower after hearing the Tweezer, it's filthy. Incredibly intense version. Many themes are explored in rapid succession, leaving no chance to catch your breath.

Tequila teases are all over the place during this set, especially peppering the Guelah that follows the Tweez. Great reading of that tune and the following Coil. Uncle Pen is average, but the YEM -> Cocaine -> YEM -> Halley's afterwards is special. A bit of a teasefest, but there's some real solid playing in there. The end of Halley's is unique and interesting. The famed Slave bustout comes next, and it's stunning. Exhilarating version of the song, it competes with 11/21/97 for the role of my favorite. The show rounds itself off nicely and there is some nice banter preceding the encore, but if nothing else, check out the songs mentioned above. You won't regret it. 4 star show.
