BLACK OIL INCINERATOR – Live at Dusk
This does not sound like a live album. Black Oil Incinerator are perfect with every note, every change, every lyric. I don’t think there are overdubs like stadium rock bands did on “live” albums back in the day. I suspect that these guys just practice a lot. Some of the songs are kind of shoegazy, with some catchy hooks. Other songs are more psychedelic in nature, but with a kind of Lou Reed lead guitar style. I’ve actually seen these guys perform at Dusk in Providence, but have no idea if this is the show I saw. I’m glad this night was captured on tape, or on the computer, or in a bear trap, or however this alleged “technology” the kids are talking about works now. Imagine what damage these guys can do in a regular studio with some time to spare. Like they chant on wrestling: this is awesome!
