Don Caballero release live album via Joyful Noise! (Pitchfork premiers first single)
The legendary Don Caballero
have announced the release of their first ever live album via Joyful Noise! Gang Banged With A Headache, And Live
is a recently-unsurfaced "authorized bootleg" from the math rock pioneers. Recorded in 2003 at a single show in Chicago, "Gang Banged" captures Don Cab's unrivaled musicianship in gritty, brash fashion.
Featuring the lineup of Gene Doyle, Jeff Ellsworth, Jason Jouver, and (of course) Damon Che, the band performs material spanning from 1993's "For Respect" (Touch & Go) to songs that would end up on 2006's "World Class Listening Problem" (Relapse Records). "Gang Banged" includes a decade's worth of quintessential Don Cab material, rendered one fateful night in Chicago. But let's be clear: this is not a premeditated live recording nor a "best of" album. This is a found document which affirms our humble opinion that Don Caballero is simply one of the best bands that has ever existed.
