4 stars Two years after the were released debut album, Led Bib recorded and released 4- compositions short live album. Three songs came from debut album (one of them is is heavily reworked David Byrne's composition), and - " Stinging Nettle " will open band's second studio album ,released same year).

Comparing with same compositions on their debut album, the difference is really big. If their debut was in general avant-jazz band's album with elements of post-punk and some rock flavour, same material there sounds as explosive and noisy avant-rock mix on this live release. And it's really for good - musicians energy add to quite complex material drive it needed to be better accepted. Saxes sounds more aggressive, almost hysterical in moments, Rhodes passages return you back to the time of great progressive rock concerts. Quite clever and well invented music got there its blood and flesh.

Good if not too short release for fans of heavy avant-jazz based sax/Rhodes attacks filled modern avant prog. There band shows its real face and the sound will be exploited for some years to come.

My rating is 3,5, rounded to 4.
