The recording of the second night at the Guilty, Tokyo adds another 17 live tracks to the repertoire. Again, the Red Medicine album is on heavy rotation, providing 7 songs, followed by Repeater (4), End Hits (3), the self-titled or 7 Songs debut EP (2) and In On The Kill Taker (1).

The audio quality of the recording is essentially very good, although segments of the first couple of songs (Merchandise, Turnover, Repeater) are unfortunately marred by sonic discrepancies.

In between chatter is virtually non-existent, yet Guy does praise Yoyogi park as per usual, as “the coolest park in the world”, urging Tokyo police to “open that street back up ‘cause that was the coolest thing I have ever seen, when all the bands used to play up and down the street”, further noting “it’s still cool that the Rockabilly guys are showing up, and it’s cool that a few bands play but there’s nothing like seeing sixty bands playing simultaneously to blow your fucking mind.”

On a personal level, I find it a bit difficult to get into the flow of the set list, although the recording includes outstanding renderings of Shut the Door, Give Me The Cure, (a slow-paced, ambient) Version and Do You Like Me (with a drawn-out build-up).

Noteworthy as well, is the appearance of Repeater early on the set, as well as Waiting Room (with a deliciously grinding guitar) to close out the gig.
