The original plan for this record was to release it on Alternative Tentacles (Jello Biafra's label) to expose ATR to a different audience, but then the plan changed to put it out on DHR Limited (1000-2500 copies). Neither happened.

Piss funny and completely outrageous; The band seemed to be revved up to antagonise the audience to the max, they were supporting Nine Inch Nails, and completely overshadowed the shoegazing tedious 'Industrial' show with all it's glitz and glamour that followed...

I'd seen ATR a few times before this and their gigs always had some edge - one particular gig at the then Astoria 2 in London consisted of the band storming on and off stage several times before the music stopped, Alec Empire pushed through the crowd and adopted a 'Jesus Christ Pose' on top of the sound booth while people yelled 'Life of Brian' quotes; until he was pushed off into the crowd, kicked a girl in the head and had to be rescued by security as the venue erupted into a riot... - the show recorded here was memorable for it's sheer fuck off-ness, pure noise and feedback, people hurling abuse and ripped up ATR shirts at the stage. Releasing it on CD was (I reckon) definitely a comedy move; pretty unlistenable really but a good statement of the power of music to get inside peoples heads and fuck with them. ATR (& DHR) were the soundtrack to breaking down culture and society to its bare brutal bones through sonic attack; they managed to piss off pretty much a whole crowd, play a half hour set of noise and still get one over Trent Reznor and his NIN pomposity...

And then release it as a live album...

hahahaha :)

Just found this cd in my collection the other day.

Pure warping distortion samples from start to finish, no beats or vocals here - it was their last gig I believe (2000). From the sleeve notes this one utterly devided the crowd - love it or hate it you can't deny its visceral power.
