Review by Mellotron Storm
4 stars Up to and including 2019 this band had released 15 studio albums but no live records. In 2020 they released eight live albums including the one I'm reviewing, then six more in 2021 and two so far in 2022. So some homework is required before buying their live stuff as these guys cross so many styles of music. I'm sure there's a live one that best suits you. "Live In San Francisco '16" is without question a record full of tracks I really like and the other one I want to track down is "Live In Adalaide '19" with those "Flying Microtonal Banana" tracks and the "Polygondwanaland" tunes. This one though was recorded live at The Independent" on May 25th to an approving crowd.

We get thirteen songs, five tracks from "I'm In Your Mind Fuzz" and five tracks from "Nonagon Infinity" both top five albums from this band for me and a big reason why I love this double disc recording. The other three tracks on here include "Trapdoor" from "Paper Mache Dream Balloon" which fits that energetic style. On disc two we get two old favourites in "The River" from "Quarters!" and "Head On/ Pill" from "Float Along-Fill Your Lungs". I like that in between those two tracks they placed "Evil Death Roll" which connects the two discs as we only get those three songs on disc two while we have ten "on fire" tracks on disc one. The band must have been tired after this one.

Disc one ends with four straight "I'm In Your Mind Fuzz" tracks all blending into one another. The other track from that record is between the opener "Robot Stop" and "Big Fig Wasp". After "People-Vultures" Stu says in a droll "What's goin' on?". "The River" to start disc two is a fan favourite, a jazzy affair but the biggest cheer is for the closer "Head On/Pill" when those opening guitar sounds fill the air. A 22 1/2 minute trip. Somehow "Cellophane" ends up in there. There's a couple of places where we get a lot of energy from the band like at 6 1/2 minutes then later at around 19 minutes.

This is a must for fans of "I'm In Your Mind Fuzz" and Nonagon Infinity" and I like that this is from the one concert as we get that same vibe throughout.
