Blended recording, the usual mix of Church and Sonic mics.

Something About You
What Was It?
Tumble Down
No, Sir, I'm Not A Christian

Not Far From It
Mall Dreams
Disconnect (still called 'Live Wire' at this point)
I'm Neurotic
Can't Tell No One [Negative Approach]

Another great live outing from the trio.

I guess God was a bit pissed after the Malts' paean to non-belief, but even His (or maybe it was his agent Random Chance) attempts to derail the show were stymied by one of the opening acts being kind enough to supply the group with the use of their bass amp for the rest of their show.

Recorded by OutOfFocusSF, this version of "I Do" was actually from their March 17th 1-2-3-4 Go! set, which I wasn't able to make.

Next up...or up before, as I'm posting these in reverse order...

Balaclavas are a three-piece from Houston, TX that play a sinuous brand of post-punk.  Bought a T-Shirt from them for my son, which he occasionally wears.


Shit Meridian
Second Sight
Call The Law
Roman Holiday
Lord Bored
Down and Loose

Some of the numbers were new, as I wasn't able to figure out names when trying to ID these originally, so you'll notice dome files in the torrent aren't named, as I haven't gone back and corrected this...I've since figured out the first song is called "Acetone", and seems to be unreleased, and the fourth, fifth and seventh tracks are "Second Sight", "Call The Law", and "Lord Bored", respectively, all off of their new (as of March 2012) four track EP out on Bandcamp, here:  http://balaclavas.bandcamp.com/

If you like this, please buy it, like I did!

Another one of David West's -- he also of Total Control, Rank/Xerox and Burning Sensations -- projects, this one is more tuneful than the former's strident gluepunk and the latter's all-out hardcore.

Need lots of help ID-ing the songs.  I bought SmartGuy SMART030, which is their eponymous debut 7", but as far as I can tell, all these songs are unreleased.
