Their first LA performance ever!
This recording is probably on par with the other recordings I did on the downstairs stage, but instead of being taped 'down in front', I was in front of the stage left speaker stack, with relatively few obstructions, so technically it's probably the best recording I've ever done.
The Raincoats were somewhat more shambolic here than in SF, but c'mon, this is not Yes we're talking about. Took them a couple of times to get Adventures Close To Home going, Gina kept flubbing the bass intro. "Sack the bassist" she cries after the second attempt went south. 'Only Loved At Night' is just one of those songs...
Right before Viv Albertine came on for her set, I had a chance to briefly chat with Gina Birch...who had videoed her entire performance.
Any help ID'ing track 6 appreciated!
A few photos, including one of Hugo from Gang Of four, thrown in.
Do not sell or leverage for material gain. MP3 transcodes are OK, as long as this info file in included. Above all, enjoy the music! -lammah
In addition here's a link to some pre-gig chatter, labelled as before Viv Albertine's set, but most likely actually before The Raincoats proper, featuring the Raincoats principals.
Our effort (songs 11+13-17)
You can grab a DVD version of this, too.
