3 stars Released as a musical testament, this recording dates from April 20th, 96 (the Cactusclub in Bruges) and is an incredible witness of the live power of the group. This was recorded for a live Radio Een Programme Cucamonga broadcast, which explains the excellent sound quality and the seriously faded out public applauses.

Still with an absurd humour (look at the sleeve upside down, it makes much more sense), the group goes through their whole career with an amazing five tracks from their debut album (if you count the Charo Calvo collab) and even have time for a fitting Zappa tribute with the superb City Of Tiny Lites sung out by Mondelaers (his voice although not that memorable is sometimes all too rare). The other highlight being the Nullo problemo, a slow blues-up improv with an infectious groove. However the original eponymous track XLS I feel was much more interesting in its studio version, even if completely different on this record.

A fitting farewell from one of the craziest band around, even if the tracks selection is a bit odd, IMHO.
