STEREO CAPTURE

HEADS UP:

THIS SHOW IS NOT SPLIT/TRACKED AS MUCH AS IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN BY SOMEONE WHO KNOWS
THE SONGS BETTER THAN MOI - LIKE THE MANU CHAO KCRW PERFORMANCE I RECORDED, OR SOME JAZZ SETS,
MOST OF THESE SONGS ARE SEEMLESS AND IMHO SHOULD REMAIN SO..I NEED HELP WITH THE SONG TITLES, SO
PLEASE HELP ME FILL IN THE SETLIST IF YOU CAN..

ANYONE WHO'S SEEN THIS BAND KNOWS THEY OFTEN GO OFF INTO 30-60 MINUTE ROCK-OUTS

Honestly i just gave up trying to split it any more than it is.. About the
300th listen my head was starting to throb a bit - lol
There are places to split this much better, please just take it for what it's worth,
you know you'll only listen to it straight through anyway!

I am aware it would have been better split perfectly, so please dont bust my B-lls
I know there are a few station ID's i could have tagged, but didnt catch them until
i'd already worked my arse off on this Monster

If the mods insist on better tracking, can we at least leave this up until someone in the know can grab
it all and track it themselves and hopefully re-up it? if there's any interest.

ACTUALLY IT'S PERFECTLY FINE AS-IS - JUST PUT THE DAMN DISC IN THE PLAYER AND CRANK IT UP!

The show kicks some serious ass, the very beginning sounds a tiny bit fuzzy, but they get the audio up and sounding great real quick!


**** NOT FOR SALE **** PLEASE DO NOT DISTRIBUTE THESE FILES IN LOSSY FORMATS ****




Comments: This is the very first time TMV has let a radio station broadcast a
complete concert. As such I guess it's one of those "first of's" so sharing it
seems like a good idea, even if there are a few flaws - First off, the radio
station had two major audio drop outs. Completely losing the signal from the
on-going concert - THAT SUCKED!

Anyone who's ever tried to tape this band live knows just how hard it is to
capture the moment. These fellows are Fast and Furious.. Often leaving me in the dust
as the listener

I Am A Huge Fan Of "De-loused In The Comatorioum" and most of "Frances The Mute" but
the stuff since then hasn't sunk in like the other two aforementioned recordings.
Most really complex music often does take a bit more time to absorb. Even if I've dropped out of
TMV's super fanatics followers, I'll always find this band's music extremely challenging and certainly as progressive as
anything else on the horizon.
