(contemporaneous write-up)

There's a couple of songs (03 and 06) I can't identify, much appreciated if you could help a brother out.  Apparently they played nothing from Love, which is quote weird considering it came out in June 2009.

Unfortunately, my recording cuts out before the encore of "Sex Bomb", and I may have missed "Talk Is Cheap" before that, so if anybody else here has another version of this that is complete, please share.  
Can't complain how this came out otherwise.

Mr. Calderwood was in "fine" form and was so pissed off he didn't bother to come back on for the encore.  I don't think the crowd hated him quite enough for his liking, even once the moshpit started going.  New bassist Rachel Thoele availed herself well, though during the start of one of her songs, Bruce started going off on her playing out of tune.  That man can down a beer faster than
anybody I've ever seen though...not Dumweiser even but one of those thick foreign brews...I think everybody was actually impressed by that.

Probably not a show you'd re-play frequently, but a good, even if  incomplete, document.


*  No leveraging for material gain, unless you're Bruce Loose or an authorized representative thereof.  Simply uncool otherwise.
*  I don't mind MP3 transcodes (not on the lossless torrent site of note of course), but please retain this info file!
*  Have fun.  Life is too short otherwise.

"The Lights The Sound The Rhythm The Noise " - Filmed by 'BayAreaMusicLens' for their 2008 Cafe Du Nord show, with Krist from Nirvana instead of Rachel from Frightwig on bassist duties...for Flipper, this instrument is the equivalent to drummers for Spinal Tap, it is said.

Toiling Midgets
Same equipment as Flipper

B&W version

I don't think my recording has ever been circulated.

No idea about setlist, currently.  I'll work on it!  Hard because no complete setlists seem to be readily reference-able, which is understandable given these are all instrumentals.   Note: this ended up getting recorded by the built-in mics vs my outboard rig, but with the volume not attenuated, hence a distorted mush.  Sorry!

Awful person at the end of song #3 shouting for the band to "play something good".  I'm like (both then and now) "FUCK OFF..."

Tim Mooney had drummed for The Sleepers for much of their existence and for Toiling Midges throughout and would tragically pass away in 2012.
