Quicksand - Live 1995
Can anyone help identify where this recording comes from? I'm not even sure where I got it from, or how long I've had it, but there it was, and here it is.
In 1995 Quicksand released their second lp "Manic Compression", and played the inaugural Warped Tour (which was a strange amalgamation of the Revelation Records showcase vs. the nascent Orange County bro-punk jock rock contingent), so maybe this set was from a Warped Tour date? I saw them on that first Warped Tour (have I told this story before?), managing to scam about 15 free tickets from the college radio station I worked for saying I would give them away as prizes (to my friends). So me, and 14 friends took in the spectacle of Sublime fans being musically mocked by Sick Of It All, Into Another, Civ, Orange 9mm, Seaweed, Rancid (before they slipped to the dark side), and Quicksand. Weird scene indeed. At one point while administering some of my patented anti-moshing justice I got blindsided by a pro-mosher who then knelt over me in preparation to administer his own patented anti-anti-moshing justice when my knight in shining (neck) armor Jeff-J-Jawk came swooping in and tackled the broseph off of my chest, to the beat mind you, saving me from certain ass kicking. Like I said weird scene, I mean, why would anybody want to fight me, I'm super cool.
