Audioblogging: Live At Club Congress, Tucson, 1986

This was the final performance by the four-person "rock band" lineup of PS Bingo, playing live at the Hotel Congress in downtown Tucson in 1986.

The set is wild and rocking, and mostly includes songs we had never played live before. The highlight is an epic free-form attempt at Krautrock oddity Brainticket's Cottonwood Hill, which we mostly knew from Nurse with Wound's Brained by Falling Masonry version released the preceding year.The real star of the set is drummer Dave Perry, absolutely POUNDING the skins. He's so good.

Look, it's obvious that most (all?) readers of this blog don't give a flying fuck about this stuff, which is no different than how audiences felt about it at the time, but if you're so inclined, you can download the zip archive here.

One of the things that keeps me coming back to this blog is the many varying subjects you cover. I can't get tired of it. You are talented in many creative areas and it is interesting to see.

Pete- did you design the cover art on all of these? Agree with J. Matt that you bring some of us back for the interesting range of information shared. I had the thought while reading these past few posts that you are providing some of the rock history of those places where you lived and performed.

Yes, did the covers for all these, based on original flyers, tape covers, etc., or at least trying to do them the way I would have back then.

Not really historical, in that we had little or no impact anywhere. The single exception was that Crash Worship in San Diego cited me as being a bit of an influence/inspiration.

Oh! And thank you both for the very kind words.
