Following on yesterday’s The What post, here is the Fastbacks’ headlining set from that same night. This was one of the few (only?) one-off headlining shows for the Fastbacks while opening Pearl Jam’s No Code European tour. This is the longest set I have ever heard of the band playing- I have 30 live shows and this is the longest (sans soundcheck).
Sound quality is not the greatest- I did everything I could to help- I boosted the highs +2 in EQ plus I popped it into Izotope RX8 and tried to push the guitar +5…. the problem is that there is not much guitar there. Those sonic studios/coresound mics are decent when you are close to the stack/line array but if someone is blasting stage volume (KURT!), you won’t get it on the tape.
Still a fun, listenable show.
