Show Notes:
This was a lean (under 2 hours), mean show on numerous levels...with show notes to match.

When the band opens with "Halfway To Everywhere", you just know deep down it's gonna be a no-nonsense affair, and they backed up that assessment in spades just 3 songs in.

A full-blown RAWK show, with a 2-for-Tuesday-back-to-back Zeppelin two-fer, expertly mixed with deep cuts like "Paint An 8" and "Song Of The Flesh", this show popped Connecticut in the face like a 5 ton bong hit to the cilia in yer lungs.

Or, this show is a PERFECT example of how far this band has come in such a short time.

It was a HUGE pleasure to meet "Big Vic" from the Mud board for the first time, and his hospitality (and internets, and comfy accomodations) was what enabled me to quickly upload both the audio and video promptly, so when you're ***thanking Dennis*** (HINT HINT) for his skills that pay the bills, be sure to give Vic a shout-out too. It'd been 15 years in the making, and both of them are salt-of-the earth folks.

Which (that being 'salt') makes a GREAT sprinkle for the "fuck off" that I'm expecting for the likes of me...


For reals...
