Jonathan Fire*Eater – The Cakewalk of Crime
I’ve said this before, but one of the best things about having this site is the people who e-mail me with stuff I didn’t even know existed. This has to be one of the best things I’ve gotten sent to me. I’ve been looking for any kind of live Jonathan Fire*Eater for years, but in the past few months I’ve gotten two different clips. The one I posted a couple of months ago, and now this one. I’m just guessing on the South Carolina location, but I’ll try and track down the exact info and post it sometime soon. But for now, enjoy a short clip of one of the best live shows out there.

Outstanding – thank you.
They played our house with Slant 6 in Atlanta right around that time (I remember they were wearing the same clothes). Stuart was super nice and in a basement setting, the band just leveled the place. I thought the name was weird at first, but once I saw them, I did not underestimate them again. That night, most of the band slept in the backyard in their suits, just on the grass. More likely passed out.
