BURNING AIRLINES – Live 7″
January 19, 2010
This 7″ was a live soundboard recording from a gig in Manheim, Germany on December 8th 1998 part of the band’s first Euro tour with Braid. All I know was this 2 track 7″ was released on a German label (Passing Complexion records) and I probably bought it from Land of Treason distro (this info only relevant to UK people). It’s been easy to forget actually how good this band were, the playing could not be any better. As a three piece there is no room for error and I think this makes for some of J. Robbins’ finest and most interesting guitar work. DL:
I was fortunate to see the band in both Bradford (see photo) and Manchester during this first Euro tour in late 1998, both times were outstanding performances. Peter Moffett is criminally underrated as a drummer, the guy was the nearest thing I’ve seen to a human metronome. His tight, powerful & precise style is the crucial backbone to Burning Airlines. To get an idea of how well this band were firing see the Youtube footage.
