  3. btb Says:

    Had another Gose Gone Wild last night. That is probably the best beer to make it to OH this year. Really a fun beer to drink. Sour as f*ck.

  4. bob dylan Says:

    Mr C, I still got access denied, but with those address locations you can easily open the downloads area on your browser and paste away.

  5. dorn76 Says:

    This stuff looks tasty.


  6. btb Says:

    As far as MPP2, I’m not sure I grasped it well without being there or seeing the webcast. Have to respin or watch it at home.

    goofing on JDances was fantastic though. A+

  7. Cheard Says:

    Westbrook Gose from Mt. Pleasant SC is pleasant

  8. bob dylan Says:

    C, you linked a beyond description bonus disc. I thought it was some show from 75 but the dates dont match. You said it was a remastered something or other. If you got a couple mins, can you let me know what I’m downloading?

  9. vapebraham Says:

    char fuego — $$$. confident composed section, confident, jazzy, fight bell inducing improv ->twist. buttery

  10. Cheard Says:

    great placement on that fuego too

  11. phishm Says:

    Way back on page 85, but have a comment.
    They have been giving the middle finger to the crowd for years. It’s just to a certain element in the crowd. If you think it’s directed at you then you are doing it wrong. You know this and just can’t help being the type of person that the bands gives the middle finger to. They will not stop doing this. Get it? Too funny.

  12. MrCompletely Says:

    @btb webcast set 2 in my orange for your comprehending pleasure

  13. MrCompletely Says:

    @bob so it didn’t work, but then did work?

    The Beyond Description bonus disk has 6 tracks from 1974 through 80. The flacs are correctly tagged so all the info should come through.

    It is a confusing bonus disk. The first track sounds awful. The second is a jaw dropping masterpiece. The third is basically a joke. The fourth is very good but somewhat random in context. The fifth is Far From Me, WTF. And the last is just again kind of random.

    Basically you want the ’75 jam and the Shakedown and maybe listen to the rest once

  14. btb Says:

    The Brown Note from ATG is a $15-17 5% English Brown ale….outrageously priced and average at best. Terrible price point.

  15. vapebraham Says:

    Twist->Circus comes also $$$.

  16. btb Says:

    C – excellent. tx!

  17. dorn76 Says:

    I am not a fan of new snobby bombers proved at $15-$20.

    The turd on the label not pushing me to pull out my cash either.

  18. dorn76 Says:


  19. RicksFork Says:

    Agreed Dorn. I am not paying $15 dollars for a bomber of 5% Brown Ale with a skid marked pair of shorts on it. I’m not likely to pay $15 for a bomber of anything for that matter.

  20. sumodie Says:

    ‘Gimmick’ as defined by Merriam Webster:

    “a method or trick that is used to get people’s attention or to sell something”

    Whatever one thought of last night’s show, it is incorrect to label it as gimmicky. Try a different word…

  21. tela's_muff Says:

    I’ve def thrown down on $15+ bombers, but not IPA’s. more in the Belgian/farmhouse/sour market. and soem of those can be bigger than the standard bomber, or, smaller. mmmmm.. sours.

  22. sumodie Says:

    DF, this site has lots of new music to dl, including Seun Kuti:


  23. bob dylan Says:

    I was under the impression the link to the bonus disc was some show from 75 that you and lilum were all talking about. recorded poorly or something. must have confused the links. also have a legion of mary link open so maybe thats what you guys are talking about.

  24. RoosterPizza Says:

    2,005 miles later…I’m home.

    Some shit I like:
    my car
    marco and fam
    first set YEM
    my papppy’s place
    leo’s wings
    first set YEM

    Some shit I don’t like:
    tractor trailers
    honor roll students working at MPP

  25. Stoney Case Says:

    last nights DWD = masterful playing. realizing many of you don’t pay much homage to the first 5 or so minutes of Disease. In this case, I recommend you do. That section is an absolute precursor and summation of how the band is playing on a given night. Then the jam just reeks of a band in control
