Pugwash - Live 2012 (Dublin + London)

Dublin, Ireland
June 22, 2012

audience recording (sound quality VG+; Whelan’s is a classic Irish pub and a great place to see a show; the atmospherics of this recording reflect these qualities)

BIG-TIME THANKS to kagee1, who did the usual excellent job of taping, transferring and sharing (thanks also to Philippe for sharing the set from London, Nov. 2012)
Pugwash: pooling their resources, somewhere in California...

ROB SEZ: I caught Pugwash live on the current tour and can say confidently that if you go, you will experience a very enjoyable show: sharp music and hilarious, Monty Python-esque banter with the band & audience. For my taste, the new album might be a bit over-baked in places, but still boasts a handful of soon-to-be classic tunes.
