Rival Schools - Live at Lowlands 2002

Label: Bootleg
Year: 2002

"Can you give me clearance, Clarence?". Airplane references are further proof that Rival Schools rule, as if you needed to hear more Walter Schriefels championing from me.
Apologies that this particular show recording is all one big lump of a song, but as a technically challenged half-a-retard, I do not know how, nor have any inclination to learn how to break this into separate tracks. It's not the end of the world to have one big mono-brow of a 50 minute song is it?
Musically, the sound quality is fantastic, but the song selection stays on the poppier side of their catalog which may or may not offend your sensibilities. I don't want to speculate on what pushes your individual buttons, so I will simply state that the songs presented in this concert are "tame" by comparison to the other live show we posted, or even the album versions of the same songs in some cases. Still enjoyable mind you, just "tame".
Also there are requests from the stage for the audience to "jump". I can only hope Walter was on the drugs and not in his right mind at said time of requests.
