The show we did the poster for was one of the worst shows I've ever seen. The year before they were incredible. Still one of my favorite bands despite that one show. Everyone has off nights. Does anybody have that Albini record? Is it a myth? I'd love to get a copy...
I didn't even know they did that piece of shit loaf "The Flame" until I saw it on one of those TimeLife compilations.
They didn't play it when I saw them - so they've since smartened up.
Nomeansno is also stunning. Consistently - the only band I know that gets better the further they get into their 50s.
And the Albini recordings are boss - they actually did a split 7" with Shellac a few years back.
I just went and saw Rick and Robin play an acoustic set at a Hardrock Cafe private party. They're the only reason I went. They were amazing, but everyone just ignored them, except for like six people who actually went to see 'em play.
