Oh hey, internet. How you? Me good.
Of course, I’d be lying if I said I’ve not been dying to post to the Chunklet site and read/fawn all over the accompanying comments, but we’ve been overrun by bots. Bots! In 2013! Can you believe that nonsense? Anyway, I’m sure you’re curious where to get Gucci bags, but the comments have been suspended until a new website design can be sorted out.
In the meantime, my show so far for 2013 (apart from a scorching Loincloth who played to 20 people on the same stage a month earlier) is Total Control and UV Race at 529. It’s rare that a show bonks me over the head where I make absolutely sure to carve time out for it, but here is such a case. Two of Australia’s finest (with Austin’s own Paraquet Courts opening) played in a veritable shoebox. A perfect room for this? Oh, you better believe it.
I’m not going to bore you, dear reader, with descriptions of both bands’ sets, but instead (and entirely with their permission) I’m including live recordings. Yeah! Just like Southern Shelter or NYC Taper or something. How d’ya like that?
A stellar pair of performances and hey, Total Control share more than a couple new tracks which you can spot on the set list (see below, wise guy).
Thanks to Sloan for helping polish this recording up slightly.
Also, to those numb nuts that care about this stuff, here’s a lossless version of this admittedly trashy performance. And UV Race and Total Control by themselves.
