Review by Miguelito

Miguelito It seems like Runaway Jim and Foam were the quintessential 1-2 set opening tunes for much of the early 90’s. This combo here doesn’t disappoint. The Jim, while not breaking any new ground, is a solid version. The same can be said for Foam. Following the opening numbers is FEFY, a tune that will always be a one of my favorites from when I was began to fall in love with this band. This serves as a nice breather too before The Curtain, which is decent but I still prefer The Curtain With. With Melt and Coil ending the set, it winds up being a pretty nice set list.

The Melt is a typical ‘94 version, which is to say it’s energetic and frenetic. I love the versions from this era. This one is very good, but not extraordinary. The Coil that follows is lovely and clearly the band agreed and it winds up on A Live One.

Opening Set II we get the first Bowie of the tour. This is a decent but nothing special version. However, I like Bowie in the set opening slot. We move through BATR and Scent, onto YEM. I miss the days when YEM could pop up at any show, rather than only once or twice a tour at best. And here we have a solid version. Nothing extraordinary but it’s nice to get. From there, the rest of the show is decent, with the Possum getting a bit of an energetic boost to close the set.

In all, this is a pretty average show for Fall ‘94 without any real highlights except maybe the Melt.
