BRAND X Live At Roxy: Belgium review (translated)

Brand X : Live at the Roxy LA 

This is a live recording of Brand X recorded at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles on September 23, 1979 . 

The band consisted of Phil Collins (drums ) , Percy Jones ( bass ) , John Goodsall ( guitar) and Robin Lumley ( Keys , who also wrote the liner notes ) and Pete Robinson ( extra keys ) . We get only six songs ( but they are long ... ) to hear , namely " Disco Suicide ", " Dance of the Illegal Aliens ," " Do not Make Waves ", " Malaga Virgin ," " ... And So To F "and" Nuclear Burn " . 

What immediately struck me about this live recording was the poor sound. With some songs , and especially in the hard and loud sections thereof , the mix sounded terribly bad and this especially in the mixing of the keyboards and bass lines . 

It is therefore difficult to give this cd. Correct assessment It was the way to a band at its peak and you will therefore expect a qualitative sound band, but it is different just turned around . You would think that this is an illegal bootleg version . We've had better live recordings , and who were much older than this , and heard that sounded a lot better .

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
