Mike Watt shared his views on this gig:


let me tell everyone here my thoughts on this show:

it was very frustrating for me cuz my bass amp overheated early and lost all punch and definition. I couldn't hear much of anything I was playing after a couple of tunes and it was very hard to get into. perk and nels said the same after the gig though they played great. norton painted like a champ. willie was blowin'. for me, I know there's been much better banyan shows so please don't think this is a typical banyan show here. kind of embarrassing for me people might think this is the best representation of banyan live. it's a crippled show cuz of crippled equipment. I have since added fans to my amp and haven't had this problem.
