Woo! That was amazing. Kinda got tired of the moshing, just cause it leaves the girls out, but a sick concert nonetheless. Unfortunately I read your post too late, and my ears are still ringing lol. That was incredible. I think the guitarist had a five string bass/guitar hybrid put through a bunch of effects that was sounding beastly. They have quite a unique sound.

So, you're a girl?

lol, no. But I felt bad cause it's just like this wild and crazy mosh pit and all the chicks have to stand at the periphery or else risk getting bones broken from some huge guy throwing his weight around. It's not exactly fair... (cedric used to always talk about this at ATDI/volta concerts, and I agree with him).

Id say most of our groupies are guys (...) but Im also happy to talk to girls. They tend not to fight their way to the front and afterward, though.

That was definitely my experience tonight. One of the craziest most packed gyrating mosh pits I've ever been in. There were a few hardcore girls whackin away, but most of them stayed safely on the sidelines. Amazing show though. Nothin like freakin the f out for an hour to get rid of that work week stress. I do have a bad case of bangover though. :wacko:

Why me? I thought this was pretty big common knowledge news.

I'm indifferent to the collab. I just want some new LB though.

LIGHTNING BOLT - "20"
"20" was recorded on August 11, 1997 in Fort Thunder R.I. on the old Tascam 424 cassette 4 track Chippendale's high school band had bought in the late 80's. LB recorded 3 takes over three days. Take 1 is thin and take 3 is rockin but the bass drum pedal breaks at the 19 minute mark, so here is take 2. Apparently the session was recorded over a tape of an older recording making the sound even more HiFi than usual. Budgets were tight back then and a new cassette was not in the cards. (So you may have to crank the bass a bit). The concept was simple, set up a clock, start playing the pattern and when the clock hits 20 minutes switch to part 2. The strange thing is on this take we change at the 19 minute mark, defeating the whole purpose of the concept. The only possibility is that time must have been different back then. Either way it was an endurance test and hypnotic experiment. And in a way is the most Lightning Boltesque song of all Lightning Bolt songs. This song was released on cassette on the 1997 Lightning Bolt/Forcefield U.S. tour. It was on the 3rd day after selling a couple copies for $5 each that we realized the master was so quiet it might as well have been blank. Sorry guys. The track was originally labelled "Rescue Mission" but that title was totally arbitrary and "20" seems like a more to the point name. The download is pay-what-you want. You can get it for free, but we do appreciate a donation. Thanks for listening.
