Waco Brothers - Waco Express: Live and Kickin' At Schubas Tavern, Chicago IL

WACO BROTHERS Waco Express: Live and Kicking at Schubas Tavern CD

Waco Brothers are possibly the current greatest live band in the world and that's the problem, because once the night of drunken debauchery has subsided, your soundtrack to the fantastic evening quickly fades. While a Waco Brothers performance is amazing, the studio releases aren't quite as memorable, failing to capture the raw energy and character of the live set. Bloodshot has come up with a remedy that attempts to address the problem with the studio releases by putting out a live CD that sets out to catch the spark of experiencing the Waco Brothers in the flesh. While the idea is great on paper it just doesn't completely work. There's no substitute for actually being there when it comes to a Waco Brothers show. As close as Live and Kicking at Shubas comes to the real thing it's sex vs. masturbation and I'd rather have the latter any day. [Bloodshot]
