Echo and The Bunnymen @ Rainbow Music Hall, Denver CO, 1984-09-03




Here is another gem out of the Lantz box of cassettes.  A really nice sounding recording of Echo and The Bunnymen on tour for their album Ocean Rain back in 1984.

I'm not 100% sure this is the complete show but based on setlists I've seen from around the same time it is very close to the whole show.

Enjoy

Supersuckers @ Tanquerayz, Fort Collins CO, 1993-08-24





Here is another show from the Lantz archive.  This time the self proclaimed Greatest Rock N Roll Band in the World!!  The Supersuckers!!!

Way back in 93' at the long defunct Fort Collins club Tanquerayz (that used to be called the Library before that) The Supersuckers rolled through on tour for Smoke Of Hell.  Possibly on tour with Gas Huffer.

The set list is classic Supersuckers mostly off Smoke Of Hell and older stuff.  They do bust out their cover of Ice Cube's Dead Homiez and a rare song Second Cousin.  That only appeared officially as the bonus track on the Japaneses CD of La Mano Cornuda.  So that is kind of a treat even if it's not that great of a song.

Rowdy crowd so this one has plenty of atmosphere.  Pretty decent sound though.  Enjoy.

Circle Jerks @ Ogden Theater, Denver CO, 2002-11-09








I saw Keith Morris in some Youtube video recently and it got me to thinking about this show.  It was my first time seeing the Circle Jerks after being a fan for a log time.  They did not disappoint. Just look at the setlist!!

Keith talks a lot and seems optimistic that they are going to record a new Circle Jerk record really soon.  Well that never happened.  Maybe it was for the best.  OFF!!  might never have formed otherwise.

My buddy Tom and I recorded this show and I think it turned out really nice.  Enjoy

Alice Donut @ Lory Student Center, Ft Collins CO, 1991-10-10


Another 1st gen master out of the Lantz tapes.  Real gem here if your into Alice Donut or just early 90s weirdo rock.  This will fit the bill.

I remember hearing a little Alice Donut back then and liking it well enough but I never really took the plunge.  After hearing this insanity I'm going to need to explore their back catalog right away and play some catch up.

Hats off again to Lantz Barbour.  He did a really great job with the gear he had. 

Pretty intense right out of the gate.  Some fun covers in this set too.  Their take on War Pigs is....something else.  The Tom Waits cover of What Keeps Mankind Alive into the Dead Kennedys song Halloween is really fantastic.  Enjoy

Fu Manchu @ Streets Of London, Denver CO, 2018-05-18





I'm sure I probably first heard Fu Manchu like a lot of people.  Man's Ruin releases at the height of that "stoner rock" scene.  So many great bands were birthed from the time.

Caught them live many times back then but it has been more than a decade at least since I have seen them live.  They still sounded as great as ever.  Fun to see them in such a small place like Streets of London.  I'm loving seeing shows there. 

They upped the PA for these shows and I think this sounds really nice for a small club recording.  There was a super fan up front requesting some oldies.  We got treated to the rarely played 'Time Tp Fly' and 'Superbird'.  Enjoy

Hot Snakes @ Oriental Theater, Denver CO, 2018-05-18




Very few bands can take as long of a break as the Hot Snakes did and come back sounding better than ever but that is just what they did.  I put their new album Jericho Sirens in my top 5 records of the year easily.

The prospect of them playing live again was just as exciting and of course they delivered.  What a great show.  The last time I had seen them was in 2004 at the Bluebird.  Hopefully I won't have to wait another 14 years to catch them again.

Enjoy
