a this and DAT, glasnostrd19 production.
do not sell this recording.
don't even think of it.
share freely, losslessly and gaplessly.
each set is seamless and in its own folder.
22 photos of the bands are included,
taken with a Nikon Coolpix S6000 digital camera.
a fun night of frolic and trails with the new ozric quartet.
this is their complete show, nothing is cut or missing, except that this is
the ozric quartet, and every time I've seen them before it was a quintet, usually different.
wobblesauce opened, sounding at times like a cross between triumvirat
and rush (with a keyboard instead of a guitar), and a couple of times more
like a UK (1979 era) wannabe copy pop band.
the band was pretty tight, but at times seemed a little too much of the same.
the drummer especially sounded good most of their hour + long set.
a flute player joined for a song by them, and a guitarist on another.
most of their set was power trio type stuff, had its moments.
after that there was a DJ for awhile. that wasn't recorded here.
the ozric set started typically late, a little after 11:00
(with a 1:00 curfew, which Boston's new mayor is trying to lengthen,
along with bus and trolley public transportation.)
Brandi mentions that about 35 people showed up the last time the ozrics were in boston
(at Harper's Ferry, this same building) and it was good to see more people turn up this time.
I missed that one somehow. the band seemed in good spirits this time around.
the set was pretty tight in most of it, although there were a few ragged moments here and there.
the venue is yet another of boston's brick and cement walled rock clubs.
much like the middle east downstairs room and to some degree even the paradise club in boston,
the brick walls of the Brighton Music Hall give the music a ringy sound.
wood you believe that wood walls sound alot better than cement or brick for most kinds of music
including ozric tentacles? the recording sounds better than being there recording it did.
I would guess there were maybe 150 or so people there for the main act.
only one that I recognized (other than Ed and Brandi Wynne)-
Paul Eggleston of Architectural Metaphor, who opened for their boston april 1994 concert
some of the songs were ones I hadn't heard before, having not heard/seen them since 2005
such as the sacred turf, mooncalf and lost in the sky.
they didn't even have shirts, posters or CD's for sale, and I was hoping to catch up
on a couple of missed more recent ozric albums I haven't heard yet.
they still had several songs I recognized and welcomed hearing again,
such as xingo, sultana detrii and eternal wheel.
would have rather heard vita voom than the throbbe or sploosh.
getting tired of those, they play them every tour.
and white rhino tea too here, I'm tiring of that one, but alot of people like it here.
I think it's just because it reminds them of the boston tea party. they have many better tunes.
still a pretty good setlist. gotta please the masses if you want to play for masses (of lasses)
mostly guys at this one but there were a few college hotties (of both sexes) at this show.
pretty good vibe at the show, an easy night for the bouncers/security.
there's a couple of times that voices come through in the tape recording, but for the most part
people were considerate of it, (including the security. appreciate that.)
