5.0 out of 5 stars Lunachicks Never Played My High School!!! June 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Oh by the way, ohh yeah! We're recording this show for a live album you guys! Is the tape changed yet?"
Those are Theo's words halfway through the album as she absentmindedly remembers that this will become the band's only live cd. This album was recorded during the Pretty Ugly tour, and 10 of the 19 songs are from that cd. ("Spork" is actually track 7, and the following songs are bumped one number up respectively). Also included is a live cover version of Iggy Pop's "Passenger," which can also be found on the Iggy tribute "We Will Fall."
I really like this album a lot, mostly because a lot of the songs are off of Jerk Of All Trades, which happens to be my favorite cd by them. The recording was done extremely well for being in a high school, and only once did I think the sound was kind of "far away." Lunachicks played most songs faster than the original versions, but I've noticed that a lot of bands do that when they play live. This doesn't take away from the album at all however, if anything it adds new dimensions to songs that are familiar to die hard fans like myself. All in all I highly recommend this album to any Lunachicks fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars A rich person should read this Sept. 30 2013

It has always bothered me that the Lunachicks were never recorded properly live, since they were such a great live band. How is it possible that a band who performs and looks great on stage were never filmed properly? Lack of funds I'm sure. This album was recorded in one night. A typical stellar performance by the Lunachicks with a solid set of material. The Lunachicks can do no wrong in my eyes - I love them - but I have to admit that this album does not go in my CD player as much as their other albums because of the sound quality. Some rich person should realize that the Lunachicks should be filmed and recorded properly live, give them a bunch of money, pay for them to make a new studio album, finance a world tour and put out a live album and DVD with superior sound quality and a ten camera video shoot with backstage footage. Then make a documentary about their extraordinary career. Why hasn't anyone thought of this before? I miss the Lunachicks and want them to come back.
3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT PERFORMANCE, HORRIFIC MIX !!! July 22 2008
By JUAN MARTIN GABASTOU - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Energetic live perfomance presenting their " Pretty Ugly " record -expect 8 songs out of the 19-track setlist to be from that album- which is a great thing since it's one of their best. Tracks 1-12 are great but the overall sound and mix are somewhat flawed; there's little treble and-heresy !- the only guitar left after their second axe quit the band is appalingly low in the mix . The drums sound ok, lotsa kickdrum little snares but the takes on the bass are incredible. This band's bassist can really play so they always mix her high in the mix on their studio records too ( I got most of them).

Versions of the songs on this cd are a fresh departure from the studio one, less polished, more chaotic but still manage to retain a high level of tightness; these chicks are a steamroller on acid ! On tracks 13-19 (there's one bonus track) the sound is totally f...d up . I'd recommend this live cd to die-hard fans of the band ONLY since it's very unsatisfactory from a sonic standpoint .
