This was also the tour where I saw them for the first time. Open air show on a square in the middle of the city of Salzburg, Austria. Unreal experience!


Yeah, the Euro boots sound fucking tight, because they haven't been crushed and loudened for ipods. It's too bad they stopped issuing them this way.

And you really get a good impression how the guitars sounded live at the shows. Not so sure about that for the 2003 shows for instance...

I was talking specifically about San Sebastian, but yeah, in general you are right, they seemed a little looser on the European leg, and a lot of the songs were just down to business versions without excessive jams. To be fair though, I really, really like those noisy RVM jams they did on leg 1 of the US tour that year. As discussed in the "lets talk about the 2000 tour" thread, the Sonic Youth influence did the band good.

I ended up getting Chicago, 1995. They had an ALAC download and just rolled with that.

Of course I'm listening to it now, on song 8 right now and loving everything. Corduroy, the ending jam, holy shmoly, that is why I love this band. :heartbeat:

Listening to complete shows on Youtube while working today. This one's really doing it for me right now.

Jacksonville was on Sirius on the way in this morning. That was a solid set.

It's been a long time since I listened to that show, so yesterday I put on MSG I 2003. I'm not the biggest fan of that setlist but you can't argue that they played incredibly tight that day. Definitely a top show for that tour...

They played Oslo 2014 on the Sirius channel this morning, I enjoyed it.
