  1. Any idea what recording gear you were using at this time? I like to keep a note for my own records, if you can remember.

    If you have time, might be an idea to add a post to the blog, similar to your Reqsts and Dead Links, with info on your recording set-up?

  2. Sony DAT & Sony Mic, i had a few different dats & mics, all sony at this time

    I'll keep digging and see if I can work out the other two tracks.

  4. Track 10 is an instrumental called, delightfully, A Cunt's Trick.

    Nice recording, by the way. There aren't many circulating recordings of Arab Strap's sets on that tour, and this may well be the best I've heard.

    Certainly a more coherent show than many of the dates on that Mogwai + Arab Strap tour, which by all accounts was a drunken/drug-fuelled riot. I saw a couple of these dates, they were sloppy but very enjoyable.
