First out of two recorded gigs at the 1000 cap Roxy in the city of Prague, Czech Republic (the other time being in 1995).

It played out on the eve of the dissolution of Czechoslovakia into the Czech Republic and Slovakia on 1 January 1993. Hoping for a peaceful transition, Ian hints at these events going into KYEO, “this next song goes out to Czechoslovakia where obviously there is some very complicated politics and an imminent separation, I hope that the troops do not come out (…), they seem to make it a habit in other countries” (note that a series of ethnic conflicts, wars of independence and insurgencies were being fought throughout the Western Balkans - or the former Yugoslavia - at the time).

The recording documents a very enjoyable, high-energy gig and top shelve performance, and it is delivered in really good audio quality. The instruments as well as the vocals come out quite well and sufficiently balanced.

The introduction to the show and a bit of Brendan #1 are missing, plunging the listener smack dab in the middle of things, and another incinerating Glueman apotheosis is cut short as well which is very unfortunate.

There are 22 songs total, with plenty of bangers off their early work. Most of it is taken off of Repeater (8 tracks), followed by Steady Diet of Nothing (7), the 7 Songs debut EP (4) and 1 song off of the Margin Walker EP. The band performed two songs off In on the Kill Taker as well, even though this album would not see its studio release until one year later.

Note that Turnover is mysteriously dubbed “Dusty” for the occasion.
