p_zetner What an awesome live band they were (are….saw them in 2016)! The two drummer lineup really punches things up a few notches, especially on a terrific Rhythm King. Spectacular, ecstatic rendition of Final Solution....my favourite recorded version.

DNPTG23 I booked this show, and I’ve never been happier to find a bootleg. The Mean Fiddler was the greatest live music venue London ever had. 600 cap that seriously punched above its weight. Happy crazy times. Favorite track: Breath.

about

Recorded March 16 1989 at The Mean Fiddler, London.
A different recording was released previously on Hearpen as a download and on a limited edition vinyl 'London Texas.' This recording is from a 'found' cassette from Mr Thomas' own private collection and the audio is superior to that previously released.

This inaugural version of Cloudland was the first show with Eric Drew Feldman and the last show with the Cutler/Krauss two drum set up.
