Notes: Although the taper used a cassette recorder, was a distance away from the stack & had some loud people by him, the recording turned out rather nice, all things considered. There are no brick-walls & the only -minor- complaint is that the high end seems to have just a slight amount of distortion if you listen for it. Really, for using what he did, this is a recording he should be proud of. One of North America's last cassette tapers = Tyler. Nice job. Now, this is the same taper as 08.26.02 so if you've heard that then you have an idea what this recording sounds like only this is a bit cleaner. The issue is, he traded out the Detroit to a few people who he assumed would not change nor alter the disc lengths, rip to MP3 or SHN or indiscriminately trade out. As a result, his recording ended up everywhere - MP3, SHN & the discs were shortened up to 2 instead of 3, as he had intended (they reflect cassette tape change). As an end result, that is the explanation why this is not for trade. Besides, the overwhelming majority of collectors would listen to other sources before this one...

Maynardism: "Thank you Meshuggah. Clive & Gustav for joining us on drums. Thank you very much for sharing this moment with us tonight. we realize that some of this information can be kind of overwhelming and we would like you to take care on your driving home & you don't masturbate yourself into oblivion, past out dead in your car. That would be a bad thing. We're hoping that you discovered something about yourself tonight. We're hoping that one some level you are inspired and/or healed - or just plain horny. We suggest you go home, curl up in front of a fire place, put on a copy of Caligula and have sex. Bring someone if you really want to make it interesting. Thank you for coming, thank you for having arrived. We'll see you on the other side."
