This was an amazing short set of hard rock/punk,
tailored towards the garage-rock crowd at Sleaze Fest. One vivid
memory of this show is how quiet the rowdy crowd suddenly became when
Ryan and Caitlin started "Lo-Fi Tennessee Mountain Angel."
The long, feedback ending of that song was incendiary, and segued
directly into "I Wanna Be Your Dog," which broke down after
one verse and chorus (Ryan made up new lyrics to the verse). The whole
festival was filmed with 3 or 4 cameras, and I was operating one of
the two cameras by the stage. I remember crawling on stage and
getting close-ups of Ryan at the end of "I Wanna Be Your
Dog" as he writhed around on his back with his eyes closed.
I never did see the video, and I think the guy who had it lost
everything in a burglary, so it is probably gone forever. First
show I saw without Steve Grothman, I didn't recognize the person
playing bass at this show. -- Michael Pemberton.
