The Lemonheads- Lowlands Fest, Holland 8/22/97 xfer from DAT Master Clone

I wasn’t planning on posting this, but it was on the DAT after that Suicide show, and the set sounded really unique. I then researched the timeframe and this looks like the last few shows with John Strom- this tour ended at Reading, at the end of August.
The reason it caught my eye (ear?) was that Evan seems to be teaching the band songs while they were onstage. The set has some killer covers that they seemed to be playing for the first time. Great stuff.
Evan catches a lot of flak for having some trainwrecks of a show, but sometimes they turn out great, like this one.
Sounds like the covers start 30ish min in.

Old 97s- Starry Plough, Berkeley Ca. 8/8/97 Direct xfer from 8mm Master Tape!

Here’s a video of the Old 97s in their prime- back when Rhett was nerdy and he beat his acoustic guitar so badly that it caused an arm injury. The unique aspect of this show is that Philip Peeples is not on drums- he had an inner ear infection so former manager Mike Schwidler is doing the honors (and does quite well). The show itself is a drunken party- they are playing a pub- and the atmosphere is loose and fun. In fact, Rhett drops a lollipop out of his mouth and kicks it from the stage mid-song.. and nails someone in the front row! It was funny. Enjoy! Filmed with a Sony TR-81 camera.
