AIDS Wolf have a massive tribute to the transition of their band from a four piece to a trio, with a title that goes on for a while: An Insane and Abstract Hell: Dedicated To Two Dudes From Rusted Shut.
Story: One time I was driving Fiasco on tour. Because they couldn't drive yet. They opened for AIDS Wolf at their Houston show, where also in attendance was Domokos Benczedi, Rusted Shut's drummer and also the dude behind Future Blondes. He'd plopped a Rusted Shut LP in my hand before he left, which gave AIDS Wolf member Yannick Desranleau a minor conniption when he saw me holding it later, out in the parking lot: “Someone from Rusted Shut was here?”
Liner note from Yannick:
TAPE I is a selection of improvs from the 'Badass Tour' in the Spring of 2009, AIDS Wolf's last tour as a four-piece. During this period, the band's performance included an obligatory improvisation half-way through the setlist. This 'break' in the set was mostly coordinated while Alex was changing to a guitar with a different tuning. This provoked about fortysome instant compositions that we tried to document as much as possible…unless we forgot to press 'REC' on the tape machine, which happened quite often.
There are only 100 of these suckers! Here they all are.
