The Psychic Paramount - Live 2002: The Franco-Italian Tour
One of the largest and most obvious perks of volunteering at your local radio station is being able to rip the shit out of as many CDs as humanly possible while you're there. This one was released back in 2006, but I never got a chance to listen to it until I saw a light shining upon it while sitting among the WRIR collection. If you've listened to our two previous posts from this trio, it's likely that you have already clicked the download link below, but if you've been living under a rock of silence and psych-less despair, it's time to break free and have your mind simultaneously blown and melted, or as it's more commonly known as, "blelted". Recorded directly to cassette with only one mic, this is an incredibly loud moment in music, and it's shocking to hear the relatively leisurely claps and cheers from the 20 people in the crowd. My moist manties would have hit the stage within 2 seconds of their first sonic explosion. This is some shit to get excited about, and I can't wait for their upcoming album this Spring. Apparently, they began this tour less than one week after their conception. Pretty unbelievable.
