20 years? Is that even possible? I mean, name something you've been doing, voluntarily, for 20 years. Can you even do that? It really doesn't feel like it's been even five years of doing this, much less twenty. Well, like it or not, it has been 20 full years of hanging out with pretty much the same bunch of guys, doing roughly the same thing, every day, every night and there's no end in sight. The night that these songs were recorded was pretty much like any other night in our lives.
Except it wasn't.
We were there to celebrate our existence. To go chronologically through our repertoire and bring it to a sold out house at the fabulous Showbox in downtown Seattle, where we cut our teeth for the last 20 years. I mean, how long could it take to run through our history (or at least touch on most of the highlights)? Well, it turns out it took us about two and a half hours. That's right, there is about two and a half hours of glorious Supersuckers mayhem right here. Warts and all. And I'd be lying if I said there weren't any warts here to be heard, because you don't get through two and a half hours on stage without hitting a few clams along the way. But that's all part of the fun. It's the Supersuckers after all, not the Seattle Philharmonic, so what do you expect? Perfection? Well, in it's own way that's what's represented here in this recording - that perfectly imperfect moment, where everything is wrong and it feels so right. Where anything that can go wrong, does and yet it still works.
Somehow, someway, after twenty years we still got it...
So here's to the next twenty!
That what I'm talking about...
