Purportedly one of the last shows by Shockabilly the original and best psychedelic Post punk band..
LSD Country and Western was the first Chadbourne thing i ever bought when it came out , still a great chewy listen! , and what a fine introduction to the likes of Tom Cora and T.Kondo...
This is a hugely atmospheric tape recording, complete with drop outs ,bleed through and minor distortions ... lots of near chaotic frenzied improv ( Electric Rake ,heavily featured!) between typical deconstructions of classic 60's Songs..beautiful stuff!
I've retained the original seeders info file... he seems to find Eugene's Politics funny , perhaps dated and somewhat embarrassing ...., Fuck him ...Chadbourne's Politics are more relevant than ever!!
Chadbourne is selling some live Shockabilly shows, and i think the original albums are mostly reissued by Shimmy Disc Kramer's label ,now back in business!
