The Flaming Lips and Beck live in Denver, CO 2002-11-18






I've never been a huge Flaming Lips fan.  I just never bought into their particular blend of music and weirdness.  I like Beck though.  I never would have ended up at this show had someone not have bought me a ticket to record it for them. 

I recall it was a really nice seat to.  10th row or so.  Too bad anything that could go wrong did go wrong.
Bad mic cable, bad minidisc media, whoo girls.  I had a bitch of a time getting a good transfer from the masters back in the day and ended up paying the guy for the ticket since I botched it.

Recently I got a new home minidisc deck for cheap and it has been doing beautiful transfers.  The mic cable problems and the whoo girls were still there but what can you do.  I've spent a bunch of time getting rid of the static and fixing the drop outs as best I can.  So what I have here is an incomplete show.  But Mostly complete.  It still clock in at 100 minutes.

Sound is a little rough at the beginning of the Flaming Lips set but it gets better as you go along.

Enjoy.
