Jonathan Pryor Thanks do much for the back story notes. You really can feel the "mew guy" vibe on here. Amazing. Favorite track: The Opener.

Giles So amazing that the very first gig is on tape! Aside from the fact that this just rules on its own, it's really fascinating to be able to hear everyone sort of feeling each other out, and comparing to the more ?unified? versions of some of these tunes on other records. A really unique band and this recording is overflowing with astonishing ideas and potential.

torzano The intensity of the opener made me very happy. From Tom Rainey's drumming and Craig Taborn's solo then when Tim comes in. Whoa!

etone Great musical moment in time. Wonder where this was live…I don’t hear beer bottles clinking so I’m thinking Europe, vs Manhattan. Though if wrong, Old Office?

This is a live recording of the first hardcell gig.
Found it in a box of cdr’s mislabeled as “Almost Quicksand”.
This was the first time playing w/Craig as well...I remember feeling euphoric that night ....kind of like a new chapter of insanity was about to start.
I Think i may have been right.
Mastered by TORN.
