Flesh Wounds: September 12, 2015 Orange County Social Club Day Show (Raleigh, NC) – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

September 30, 2015

Flesh Wounds

For the second year running, one of my favorite Hopscotch shows has been the Orange County Social Club day show at Kings. And just like last year’s lineup, local Carrboro punk band Flesh Wounds is one of the show’s main draws. With one self-titled LP, a couple tapes, and a 7″ out on Merge, the band is one of North Carolina’s best kept secrets. But Flesh Wounds’ cover has surely been blown, as they toured both as opening act and backing band on Mac McCaughan’s recent solo tour (which we caught back in May at Baby’s All Right). Any proof you need that this band’s vitality extends beyond their home state is right here on this recording. In a breathless twenty minutes in which they barely pause between songs, the band plays from the recent In the Mouth EP on Snot Releases, “Kennel Cough” from their Merge single, and a few new ones. This is one of the bands that will keep me coming back to North Carolina, but I’m hoping I don’t have to wait an entire year to see them again at Hopscotch.

I recorded this set with the mics clamped to a ledge behind the soundboard, combined with a feed from Kings FOH Justin. The results are outstanding. Enjoy!
