Early Times of his Life
This was one of the most memorable show that will stain my brain forever. I regret not recording them but it was the 1st time that I was exposed to El Ten Eleven. I had no idea who they were but this was like one of their first of several shows that they've ever played. If I recall correctly, Allen Epley had mentioned that they were the most memorable opener of that tour. Unfortunately my recording of this on minidisc did not behave for 2 songs of this set that were *cut*, it was just the medium itself that didn't fare to well. Minidiscs weren't 100% reliable even back then, which sucked. Shit happens!
What I remember about this set was hanging out with John Meredith who played bass on The Flat End of the Earth at the time. I think that's how I was introduced to Someday I, his other band from Boulder, CO. Mike Meyers played phenomenally that night. I miss these tunes... but since it's a different incarnation of his band, Allen continues to write epic music and moves on from this early
era of TLAT. Enjoy...
Greg from a band called Overtone and fellow ThirdGearScratcher had TLAT play his youth center in 2006 in which they headlined. This was a cool set, altho I admit I remember Muscle Cars had a loop that Allen recorded on the DL4 looping pedal for his voice. Pretty cool. Well, it's late again as usual. Enjoy this set!
