Such a worthy live segment... you have nights for LPD studio albums, then there are the nights where you want this type of insanity, a spectral visitation of unbelievable energy. Emmys and Grammys are hardly good enough for every single bandmember.
Favorite track: The Talent Contest/Eight Minutes to Live/Black Castles/Thursday Night Fever.
A rough cassette that lurked, waiting to be played, in an Ikea basket for a couple of decades, this is the promised "Live'89 Part 2". Sadly it isn't the whole show (from the Bikini Club in Toulouse, France), and quality is shaky ,especially with those drop-outs here and there, not forgetting a dose of flu for the singer- but enhancement has also brought it to life.
It's important as it's one of the first shows with Bob Pistoor and reflects just how the Dots transformed during that special year. A document , and some rare live songs too (just a pity the first part of "Waiting for the Cloud" is missing).

Jean Jacques Birge is an artist with a history so rich with good music, it's possible to forget that there's life outside this submarine. Hours of deep listening await the curious listener. Legendary Pink Dots
