Super Limited, Numbered 2002 Original. This Is 189 Of 300. "Two Sidelong Instrumental Jams Make Up This Limited Edition (300) Recording Of A Rare Live Salamander Performance From May 20 Of This Year. The First, "A Thirsty End," Begins Like A Grateful Dead Tuning Session—The Band Doesn't Seem Quite Sure What Song To Play, But Soon Dave Onnen's Throbbing Bass Picks Out A Groove And The Twin Drumming Of Bryce Kastning And Matt Zaun Fill In The Gaps, Allowing Guitarists Sean Connaughty And (Moonlighting From Skye Klad) Erik Wivinus (Doesn't He Ever Sleep?) To Weave Their Magic With A Vibe That Is Closer To The Heavy Grooves On Their Camera Obscura "Red" Albums ("Mantra" And "Ampersand") Than The More Recent 2xlp Birds Of Appetite. The Tension Eases Somewhat Towards The End When This Listener Had The Sense That The Weight Of The World Had Been Lifted Off His Shoulders. The 15-Minute "Trench Of Fire" On The Flip Finds Us In A Wind Tunnel With Erik's Vibrating Baritone Guitar Bouncing Notes Off The Wall With The Resulting Distorted Feedback Crescendoing Like Tentacles Of Flame Reaching Out Of The Titular Pit. Then It's Sean's Turn To Run Swirling Loop-De-Loops Up And Down The Guitar Neck And All Around The Resulting Maelstrom. About Halfway Through, Over A Throbbing Sabbath-On Quaaludes Stomp, Wivinus And Connaughty's Guitars Become Flamethrowers Spewing Sparks At Each Other, Into The Audience, Through Your Speakers, And Into Your Face. I'm Sure There Are Easier Ways To Get A Tan, But They Ain't Half As Fun. If Long, Psychedelic, Improvisational Guitar Duels Are Your Thing, Live At Soo Gallery Should Be Also.” - Jeff Penczak, Fake Jazz
