Trying to shake off a good 6 months of hedonistic self-indulgence and get back to what this place is about; sharing live recordings from bands that I feel other people should know about. Starting off with one of the last shows of 2011 to really amaze me. This is a 2 song excerpt (the last 2 songs) of a 70 minute set.

I've always admired and enjoyed Painted Saints but I was blown away at their recent release show for the new album No Match for Greater Minds. Have you heard this album yet? Nona Marie & The Choir, Dreamland Faces and The Stew Bums (Mike & Nikki Gunther) supported. Hear The Choir's cover of "Good Woman" here.
