Help needed to id tracks 3 and 9. 3 features the lyric 'something nasty'
and 9 has 'in the key of death'.

This is about as much Smashing Pumpkins as anything fronted by Billy Corgan
currently being released by that name is, at least according to one reviewer
I've read who made that analogy, and who also argues that whatever state
the music is in, Mr. Ryder still deserves his day in the sun, as it's a
miracle he is still with us, much less still performing. I have to agree.

I only wished I could have seen the Mondays during their heyday back in
the late 80s/early 90s, rather than with just Shaun being the only original
member left in he group. He did look better than I expected, and with a
full head of hair...but kept his sunglasses (which I suspect double as
autocue) on throughout the entire set, but even with that he missed some

It turns out that their drummer had bailed on them about a week prior,
forcing Shaun to recruit his nephew Jacob to play the drums, which he
did servicably.

Not a perfect recording, as at 1:38 and 1:42 there's a bit of left channel
dropout, though it's entirely possible this is due to the venue sound mix
being horribly out of whack, and not something dodgy with my mic placemnt.
Had to boost bass slightly as I put on the 200kHz low cut filter on, but
not much else done with this.

Added some blurry photos from my iPhone 3GS.
