I got this album as soon as it came out, and went to see the band shortly afterwards at the Masquerade in Atlanta. My memories are of a wild-eyed, drunken, shirtless, David Yow writhing around stage in black jeans and cowboy boots. Excorcising his demons in front of us. Howling. I went home and immediately sought out the band’s back-catalog.
Here are two tracks off the album, Liar, which first introduced me to these animals.
