The Deadpod

Dec 13, 2013

I've always been fond of how the band sounded in 1979, and this week's Deadpod shows some of the reasons why. Brett hadn't been in the band a year yet, but by now he is well integrated in the sound and you can really hear his contributions in this show from Kansas City. The rest of the band is quite tight as well, and in this first set the solid 'Jack Straw' and 'Loser' openers show us that we're in for a great night. Big River is rockin' as well, and the boys open up 'Althea' to some unusual spaces at the end. Phil has some excellent riffs throughout and especially in the closing China Cat->Rider.. 

All in all this is a solid first set, and I'm looking forward to sharing set two next week.. I hope you enjoy it!
