The Kossabone Red - Live at WREK March 25, 1997

Here is the download: The Kossabone Red - Live at WREK - March 25, 1997

I have posted a good bit of the studio output of KR in the post here, but as the WREK Underground Recordings has been broadcasting these snapshots of our Atlanta music history, I thought it would be a good idea to archive a few of them here for others to enjoy at their leisure.

So we have the classic combination of Jesse Smith, Justin Snyder and Chris McNeal in its semi-original form, starting as Ripchord and then moving on to later permutations as Some Soviet Station and Paper Lions, each time changing drummers but keeping the two guitar/bass unit intact. Of course Jesse continued on in Carbonas, Gentleman Jesse and His Men, C.O.P.S., Gaye Blades, etc. and Justin/Chris teamed up with Josh Lott in Teenage Meth Lab, and now Chris plays in Vincas as well as some guest appearances in Maserati. All of these guys have over 15 years in this "business", so as much as they probably want to move forward and not remember what they were doing in their teenage years, it deserves admiration, and made them the musicians they are today.
