2 live performances, originally recorded on video then dubbed to cassette (sound only must have been passť by this stage) and, therefore, the limitations of a single compression mike are evident but there's lots of bass and so it's enjoyable listening all the same.

There's a scant 5 months between gigs but the set list had changed quite a lot. Thankfully, the strongest material lives in both sets : Dead Organic Matter's lovely slow croon, Weatbix In The Beatbox's electro C&W swing, the grand soap opera of Viva Las Plagueas and the gorgeous melody of French Highway Breeze.
