This show featured the debut of Eliza. David Bowie contained Asse Festival teases, two Charlie Chan signals and Oom Pa Pa and Random Note signals in the intro and two more Charlie Chan signals and Popeye and Tritone Down signals in the song itself. Magilla contained a Blue Monk tease from Page. Minute by Minute featured Fish on trombone. Possum contained two Charlie Chan signals and How High The Moon and Random Laugh signals. Recordings of this performance circulate with You Enjoy Myself following Communication Breakdown, but the YEM appears to be from a different show.

Review by TheEmu

TheEmu Really sounds like this was an amazing crowd, very high energy. I wish the recordings were a little better, but the second set especially sounds like the source might be a little slow. However, this is an enjoyable show, with a very good Divided Sky, a young and interesting Tube, a great Magilla, and solid (though at times plodding, though again that might be the source recording) versions of SOAMelt, Foam and YEM. Possum is also above average and is signal-filled. The highlight by far, though, is a David Bowie which is filled to the brim with evil awesomeness (and signals and teases as well). Really enjoyed the Bowie. I'll also mention that Minute By Minute needs to come back, because it's awesomely awful as only Fish can be, and Communication Breakdown would make a nice change up for GTBT, although this version isn't executed well at all. Oh, and the Hood is pretty solid at the end, but it meanders and noodles for most of the jam.

So, all in all, I can't really see giving this 4 stars, as the only things that are clearly above average are the Bowie (definitely) and the Possum (slightly). So I'm going with three stars.

Review by thelot

thelot The levels on this audience source are a bit hot. Plus, there’s a handful of cassette generations in the lineage. Suffice to say this source leaves a lot to be desired.

The Buried Alive>Sky pairing is a great way to open a show. After Paul and Silas Trey mentions that they wrote 15 new songs during their time off. Nice segue from a rippin’ Bag into The Asse Festival. Great mid set Bowie complete with an Asse Festival tease and more secret language. Solid versions of Stash and Magilla. Coil closes out set 1 for the first time.

The quality degrades for the start of set 2 but improves a bit after Melt. Solid version of Melt. The debut of Eliza was up next with no introduction. Things fade out after Foam. When the recording comes back in Trey introduces Zero Red Donut Man for another rendition featuring alter ego, Michael McFishman singing Minute by Minute. lol A decent Hood follows Minute by Minute. Possum wraps up set 2 in fine fashion with more secret language. Communication Breakdown makes another appearance after a brief hiatus. Although it’s reported that it was played at a private party over the summer while the band was on break. There’s another cut after Communication Breakdown. The beginning of YEM is cut. Not sure why they chose to patch in the intro from 6/16/90? When The source switches over it’s pretty clear it’s the same source used for this show. They say good night following the vocal jam so I’m pretty confident YEM closes out this show. Fun YEM with an entertaining vocal jam.
