PaniCast 53 Lost Summer - REDUX


WHEW! That took some time...
I hope you are all still waiting patiently - I promise the next few weeks will be worth the wait!

I turn around and May has turned to September. What happened to our summer?

As an ode to our lost summer I put together some selections from August in Panic History for your enjoyment. I literally went through the archives and pulled an August performance from each of the years we had on the hard drives through 1999. We are missing some critical August performances from 87, 88 and 91 but the examples we have here are good ones.

Bird Song features Kelly Jo Davis on vocals. Normally I am not a big fan of Bird Song as performed by Widespread, but this version shines - JB's vocal play with Kelly Jo is subtle and Houser's playing is unhinged.

The 1989 selection from the Wetlands is pure five piece Panic - And I've always had a soft spot in my heart for it. It happens to be the very first live performance by the band I ever heard on tape or otherwise.

What can you say about a 1990 Holden Oversoul other than tempo, tempo, tempo! Some serious funky Panic happening mid-way through this one.

Sunny is feeling it after It Ain't No Use and JB is feeling it during Last Straw... Todd is firing on all cylinders, Dave and Houser intertwine nicely and JoJo finds some interesting fills during this awesome matrix recording of a HORDE performance from 1992.

Flat Foot Flewzy from a Oak Mountain HORDE date in 1993 featuring John Popper on harmonica may be the highlight of this broadcast... Really sick - partly because Popper refused to give up the lead and Dave's vocal antics. "Holy shit" is right.

Pilgrims is from the encore of a show in Lubbock. JB says something way in the background (before Dave yells, "Lubbock") that I can't make out. Something about tractors... if anyone can make out what he is saying, please share. Plus listen to what Garrie is talking about at the end there.... you could take your ticket across the street to a bar and drink all night for free?! I'd be willing to bet that bar lost money that night!

Can't Find My Way Home was the encore of the second night of a two show run at the Vic in Chicago. "Thank you, good night!"

"I'm gonna cut myself and forget about her!"
Although the Last Dance from Germany has a missed cue part way through it is well played - plus hearing Dave count to four in German is worth including it, don't you think?
"Eins, zwei, drei, vier!"

I hope you enjoyed this week's cast - TELL YOUR FRIENDS WE'RE BACK!
Thanks.

Seems this one is too long to burn to CD, what is the workaround?

Ted said...

I am not sure if there is a workaround - didn't really compile the cast for burning to CD - sorry!

Ted,

Great to see your back, I hope the move was smooth for your family!

Love this August "snapshot"....

What's your thoughts on the summer 99 run w/ the D.B.B? I just remember some sick music being played, really intense and spacey 2nd sets (Indianapolis & Cleveland).

Hi Ted. Welcome back. What a great podcast to come back with. Thanks for including a track from Seattle. We here in Seattle are eagerly waiting for the two shows in Oct. It was 16 years ago today I saw my first show. Wondered if you might have any songs from 09/04/91. Thanks for some more great tunes. Peace, Glenn

Ted said...

As far as I can tell I do not have anything from 9/4/91 - sorry - i will look when my Analogs come out of storage though - that may take a few more months!

Hey Ted, thanks for the wonderful podcast. You made up for the summer of absence with some great selections. Flat Foot Flewzy blew my mind. Looking forward to the fall tour and more of your podcasts.

Great to see the Panicasts are back! Can't wait to see the boys for 3 nights in Oakland. BTW, Lubbock County and the city of Lubbock are both legally dry, so maybe Garrie is joking?

I might be late to the party...but damn was that a party!

Listened to half this morning getting ready for work and just finished the back end when I got home. I love trying to figure out what show(s) these are from before checking the blog and I got the Wetlands right...wore that tape out for years! The Oak Mtn. is good but, by far, the best part about this cast is 8/8/92..I hadn't heard that since the show and it was the perfect way to start my morning...I was standing by the stereo this morning not wanting to leave, waiting for the last notes of Worry to come...and not wanting them to so I could logically push going into work back...and, that is logic for you...'cuse me for being tardy, but I was listening to my EC podcast and couldn't get out of the house until a good stopping point...decided to save the FFF for after work and it was the perfect pump-me-up after a crazy day of budgetary woes in the state of NC...Ted, thanks again for all you do!
