Fu Manchu @ Bluebird Theatre, Denver CO, 2002-02-05


Fu Manchu is a band I have seen a bunch of times over the years starting in the 90s.  They are still at it too.  Started in 1990 that is a hell of a run.  In fact they have a new double album coming out next week.  Love to see the longevity.  

This show was for the California Crossing album tour and we get a bunch of songs of of that and some old classics.  Scott Hill complains about having to play so quite later in their set.  Probably after the sound guy scolded them for turning up.  At the time the Bluebird didn't have great sound abatement and had nearby neighbors that loved to complain.  They would even call and say it was too loud when a show wasn't going on.  The Bluebird got hit with some noise ordinance violations and had to stay at 100db.   Pretty quiet.    They weren't happy but I think this sounds pretty good.  Maybe the best of my handful of Fu recordings.  Enjoy.
