Review by Bob_Loblaw

Bob_Loblaw Pretty middle of the road show as far as the Giant Country Horns tour goes. But there's some good stuff in there.

The opening trio of songs are essentially a building peak in CDT that recedes during Coil and sets the stage for Buried Alive when the horns kick in. Gin is great Landlady is a lock song at this point with horns so no surprise there that it's solid. Cavern is sloppy but they get it together. Tela, YEM is a fantastic end note to this set and as expected both are well played.

Possum kicks things off on a high note much like the opening two songs from set 1. There's something about this Guelah that just gives the feeling of the guys savoring this song at this point with it's new pal The Asse Festival. I really like how the horns come in during this Bowie. I love all the silly quarky sounds they are making with their horns during the cymbal intro. Jesus Left Chicago is excellent. I really love this Funky Bitch and Frankenstein. Suzy didn't have quite the power that most have from this tour so it's kind of a dull bookend to this set.

Overall a fairly average '91 show.
