During the first lockdown of 2020, Radiohead went back into their extensive archive and began sharing pro-shot, full length gigs to entertain their rabid fan base. Some great films emerged from that time, but few seem as adventurous as this set from a South American gig.
In the summer of 1994, Sausage released their one and only album, ‘Riddles Are Abound Tonight’. A genuine treat for Primus fans, this was far more than a side project for Les Claypool – it was effectively a reunion of the first Primus line up featuring guitarist Todd Huth and drummer Jay Lane.
During the first UK pandemic lockdown of 2020, much to the delight of fans, Radiohead explored their archives and uploaded various professionally shot live shows to YouTube for free. It was an interesting document of shows we may not have been given access to in a “normal world”.
If Woodstock ’94 is remembered for anything, it’s the mud. Well circulated footage of Green Day and Primus being pelted by massive lumps of grass and dirt has become synonymous with the nineties festival. Scene’s of crowds participating in mudslides and photographs of “mudmen” have almost become more legendary than performances by Bob Dylan, Traffic and The Allman Brothers Band.
The Tedeschi Trucks Band are known for their great live performances. Epic sets where – in the time honoured Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers traditions – anything can happen. Many of their previous live shows have been shared by fans, but few match the grandness of their set a couple of nights ago at the LOCKN’ Festival.
