Happy Friday! I know what you are thinking- it’s Friday, and I really want to hear something different. Well, here you go. Either RATM thought it was a good idea to play acoustic/with no distortion, or KROQ screwed up the mix… or Tom Morello forgot his distortion pedals. Regardless, this seems like a pretty unique set. Enjoy. Youtube’s copyright algorithm didn’t even pick this up as RATM! Haha. They get away with an uncensored “bullsh*t” at 5:30.
Over the next few weeks (weekdays), I will be posting sets from the 1993 Almost Acoustic Xmas. On the night of Dec 11th, I was driving to grab dinner for the family and I turn on KROQ and I hear that they were broadcasting the entire show live on the radio! I listened to KROQ regularly back then and did not recall any advertising for the broadcast. I hauled ass back home and grabbed a DAT and started recording. I was broke back then, so I have these sets scattered over about 5 DATs. I think I only lost a couple minutes of one set due to tape change- General Public. I even was able to edit in the interviews from other sections of the tape. The Blind Melon interview is a sad foreshadow of their future.
Anyway, hope you enjoy these. I became a fan of at least a few of these bands through this broadcast.
