DMZ: Live at the Rat: CD

This is one o’ those bands that I’ve heard bits and pieces of over the years, liked, but nothing ever got picked up. That’s my loss in the end, ‘cause this was one damn fine band. Consisting of two live shows recorded at the Rat in Boston nearly seventeen years apart, the whole thing is blessed both with some pretty inspired playing and good recording quality. Also included are some pretty funny liner notes by Monoman and, count ‘em, three different versions of “Boy from Nowhere,” which makes this worth the green alone.
