* Only the last twenty seconds of 'Bushman President' were captured.
- Another uncirculated show from Hans Devente! This one a mid-Drums & Wires tour show.
- Considering how incredibly tight and clean the audio is, I'd wager this is more
likely a board feed rather than an FM or pre-FM source. It simply isn't radio friendly;
the bass isn't 'in your face' enough, the mids are slightly recessed, the crowd isn't
prominent enough between songs, and the amplitude isn't very high.
- No matter, like I said, the sound is very tight and clean. This is also the only known
Canadian XTC source besides the 1979-01-10 show at the Edge in Toronto.
- Considering how tight and bass light this is, I'm going to guess that this venue
is/was a rather boomy one.
- Oh, and Dave had his balls chopped off.
