Day Before The Sky Fell In CD
47 minute performance recorded at Reckless Records in Chicago on September 10, 2001. Features the 'classic' lineup of Cotton Casino (synth), Tsuyama Atsushi (bass, voice, acoustic guitar), Hiroshi Higashi (synth, electric guitar), Ichiraku Yoshimitsu (drums), and Kawabata Makoto (electric guitar) playing 2 long tracks: Space Age Ballad / La Novia (including In E) and La Novia - Speed Guru. Excellent performance / recording - limited edition of 1000 copies. Also features the artwork of Plastic Crimewave. "The sold out LP "The Day Before the Sky Fell in" released a few years back by GZDisk/Eclipse is at last on CD! Recorded the day before the cataclysm at a Reckless records in-store in Chicago, this finds another side of the Mothers, as they lay down a spacious acoustic bed before taking off into the stratosphere, with Tsuyama blissfully strumming a Martin for perhaps the most cosmic and dynamic version of "La Novia" ever. Even Makoto was caught off guard by the uniqueness of this performance, and believe you me, the walls shook and records tumbled down before the show was done. Cleaned up from the original master by Makoto, this also features all new kraut-indebted artwork by Plastic Crimewave, and the actual credits not allowed on the original bootleg-type release.............."
