Anyone got a Normal, IL boot from either of these years. from an interview with Arthur Barrow (paraphrased, can't find it, would love to though):

Interviewer: Here's an Andy that goes into this weird latin section.

Arthur: No we always played Andy straight.

Interviewer plays Arthur the tape

Arthur: Well what do you know...

So clearly. A) this exists. B) i need to hear it.

Can't find this show on zappateers though... someone help a '79 tour fanatic out...

11/21/80 is the date of the show. The tape doesn't circulate. I believe the tape is lost (there may be a discussion about it somewhere in the Zappateers archive).

I was at that show, backstage in fact. But I was too ripped to remember anything. :)

I played bass that night. Of course Arthur doesn't remember, he was stuck in Acapulco, where all his friends go. I filled in and was ripped on acid, went in with that latin sound in me head... and lucky for meself, FZ & the band went along too...I think. They didn't ask me back...but I've said all this before on the Zappateers site. I saw dog that night and haven't played a lick since, the dream is over now go home. I also can't get that concert outta me head! The Torture Never Stops. Thanks Frank!
