A fun show this week.
No blocks, just a straight ahead, no frills,
your Mama might be listening, where the
hell are my pants?! type of show.
There were very few casualties.
Only a little blood was drawn.
Mine, I bent down to pick up a dropped
item and banged me noggin’ on the
I wish I was kidding.
It was interesting to play some of Emo Philip’s
early material from the mid 80’s.
It was really slow and methodical, not the quicker
paced Emo that is currently on display.
Still brilliant but almost too slow to be enjoyable.
I can’t help but think that this is done by artists
that don’t have enough material to fill out a
full show, slow it down and stretch it out.
An eclectic compilation, tried and true…
