I had a request for some live Psi Com material recently, and this is one of two shows by the pre-Janes Addiction Perry Farrell lead group that I have to offer. This particular concert (which you can read more about here) took place at a venue situated in the Mojave Desert, which also featured Redd Kross and Sonic Youth among others. That huge, expanse of virtually barren terrain is a fitting setting for Psi-Com's penchant for billowy, atmospheric post-punk, sonically limitless in scope it would seem. Perry's warble/yodel stylings are a bit heavy-handed at times, but he at least got it out of his system before Jane's. Psi Com got tagged as "goth" at the time, and you might understand why after you treat your ears to these seven long-winded cuts.
