The band starts off in a pleasant mood and test drive a steamrolling Ex-Spectator as an intro. Show gets off to a really good start in general...

...Until problems ensue. There is some crowd control with the help of a local translating, and after that a double statement in the form of Turnover and Reclamation. Ian seems to be losing his voice but still puts everything on the line in every song. In contrast, Guy is at his most sensitive sounding to me, which is just awesome. Later, Five Corporations is mostly cut in the middle.

There's a really great flow of songs starting with a couple of Red Medicine tracks merging into a trio from the first EP. You can hear the crowd sing along and I can only imagine the party going on in the house. It seems that any problems with the audience are over. Personal highlight for me is a groovy Recap Modotti. There's some funny banter further approving that the evening has turned to a friendly encounter.

The encore is a nice catering from the Killtaker album after Long Division jumps perfectly to Cassavetes. Ian has no mercy on his voice with the explosive performances of Great Cop and Repeater. Beautiful flow from Last Chance to Closed Captioned are up next as the evening draws to a close.

The sound rating is problematic...as the mix is basically mono, listening on the headphones is not as rewarding as on a stereo, which in turn is a blast. Joe's bass and the drums sound surprisingly clear with the vocals being the most prominent element. All in all, this is another recommendable show!

Do I have bad copy or is an act of God responsible for lack of 1 minute in duration time of "Five Corporations"?
