Apparently the batch of Let's Active
demos I posted on Christmas Eve was a big hit with a lot of people, so I thought I'd share this live curio from Halloween 2008, where an intimate outdoor gathering featured Mitch Easter and friends performing a set of LA songs, billed under the moniker of Gravel Truck
. Two thirds of the original LA trio, Faye Hunter
and Sara Romweber
are absent, as are just about all the players for the band's final two albums, Big Plans for Everybody
and Every Dog Has It's Day
. So who exactly is
present and accounted for in this lineup? Tim Lee
renown among others, as well as Easter's wife and longtime musical coconspirator Shalini Chatterjee
. Charlotte local yocal Chris Garges
mans the drumkit, and Tim Lee's wife Susan Bauer Lee
contributes vocals as well.
As for the performance itself, is the 'magic' still intact? There's only one way to find out, and by now, you know what ya'll need to do on your end. BTW, the notes in the folder are not mine, rather I'm assuming the taper.
