The Chills - Green Eyed Owl (Live)
I had written previously of my experience of being blown away by The Chills live, and feeling like their albums never quite lived up to my memory of that experience. This live track, which was originally the b-side of a 1987 single, gives a fair representation of their live capabilities. This is close to the sound I remember from the band that performed live at CBGBs in 1988, although for all I know the line-up had turned over twice in the year between the release of this single and the show I saw. It would be a shame for something so beautiful to simply be forgotten.
