Ok so this is a reissue of one of my favorite semi-recent releases.
This excellent cassette reissue of LIMBS BIN's "Bliss Tech" flexi 7
inch, Entitled "Bliss Tech Plus" offers us all of the contents of the
original record on the A side. I reviewed the O.G. version and that 
can be analysed after clicking on the following link with that little
device of yours: --->

SIDE B.) LIVE IN LARAMIE (FOR DENVER):
(Recorded At Baby Hospice In Laramie, WY, On 1.25.17)

On the cassette version there is more!!! The good person(s) 
over at Aggressive Rhythm Records have blessed us with further
explorations of sonic bliss and technologically based soundscapes.
This time presented as a documentation of a live version of the
album. This is a rare treat for those of us (Like Myself) who 
live in shithole towns with no noise scene. (E.G. Here people 
listen to Pop/Rock hits, Shitty modern breakdown bands that claim 
to play HxC, Modern Country hits, Christian Alternative hits, 
Modern Radio Hip-Hop, And a slew of other God-Awful "art-forms.")
So yeah, For those of us who rarely have an opportunity to catch
a Noise artist live, Releases like this are a much appreciated
chance to at the very least have some resemblance of experiencing
a live performance from a band/project we enjoy. And let me tell
you, This is quite an enjoyable listen. Here we get a full live
set that is just as blistering and grueling as the original release.
One major difference being that on the live recording, Josh Landes
(Ya know, The dude that does Limbs Bin) adds a brief introduction/
commentary at the start of each track. Humor and the feeling of
being entertained by a true performer are present. I recently saw
Alice Cooper live. He is renowned for being a master entertainer 
in a live setting, And while it was mighty entertaining...One 
thing I noticed was that Mr. Cooper engaged in virtually no
interaction with the crowd. No words in-between songs. No "How
are you doing tonight!!!," No nothing. LIMBS BIN did not make 
that mistake. He seems very aware that it is his job as a live
performer to entertain within his mediums. Josh Landes nails it.
Strong content from a strong contender. 

AWESOME REISSUE. NOT ONE I EXPECTED TO SEE, BUT I'M VERY GLAD
IT EXISTS:

10/10
