Gary Lucas, guitar virtuoso extraordinaire, is perhaps best known from his grammy-nominated collaborations with the late Jeff Buckley, or as the lead guitarist for Captain Beefheart’s early-80’s albums. For the last decade or so, Gary has been involved with Gods and Monsters, a veritable who’s-who of punk legends, including Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads and Modern Lovers), Ernie Brooks (Modern Lovers), and Billy Ficca (Television). Last night’s performance at the intimate Bowery Poetry Club was a nice mix of Gods & Monsters material, some interesting covers, and a few inspired improvisations.

Gary Lucas permits audience fan recordings, and as a result I was able to use my Neumann rig and set up at an advantageous spot. Unfortunately, after I was completely set up, I noticed a draft of air from an air conditioning duct that was blowing directly onto the microphones. There is a wooshing noise from the duct that is audible during quiet moments, but can not be heard when the band plays. While the music plays, this is an outstanding recording! Enjoy.
