Hutton's Great Heat Engine Demo. Rejection Spoken Softly Demo. John Woo Demo. We Are The Romans The guitar is hard to follow with the mass amount of feedback that screeches every time he stops playing, think The Chariot's Everything is Alive Dave Verellen's dedication of "C. Thomas Howell as the Soul Man" to straight-edge bands marks the beginning of one of my personal favorite Botch songs.
The intro punches you in the face and does let up for awhile. The song then enters Dave Knudson's guitar experimentation with a guitar line played on the highest string with loads of delay. This quickly morphs into a simple chord progression played on bass with a sheer amount of fuzz distortion to accent the progression.
A horrendous scream from an audience member signals the rest of the band to join in to finish the song. If your parents were listening, this is the point where they would open up the DVD tray and snap in half.
I guess it shows his large range of influences. After asking the crowd for more "quality heckling" and Verellen asks the crowd to comment on his weight proclaiming, "I'm chubby, I know it, tell me about it," the band pounds through "Japam", "Oma", which apparently means "grandmother" in German, and "Frequency Ass Bandit".
All of these songs deliver the signature Botch sound, with the added aggression of Verellen screaming like a madman over the top it. Track eight introduces my favorite song off of Botch's last e. An Anthology of Dead Ends, entitled "Framce". The song starts off with the guitar's squealing feedback and explodes into the guitar riff laden with some sort of electronic sounding effect.
It sounds very close to a pitch bender that would be on a keyboard. The songs goes on to a riff that contains more of The Chariot style feedback well, I should call it Botch style feedback because The Chariot would exist if it wasn't for this band. After "Third Part in Tragedy", a song from what I presume is off of an early 7" or something of the sort, and the odd cover of the B's "Rock Lobster", complete with screaming an all, starts the main course of this DVD.
My all time favorite Botch song "Transitions from Persona to Object" begins with the odd, yet simple guitar riff with a rather low amount of distortion, one of the rare moments of the concert where you eardrums aren't being pummeled with a wall of sound. This riff is played for a while with the rest of the band joining in occasionally. The most active instrument is the drums. Latona plays with the crazy time signatures provided by the guitars, which is why I consider him an amazing drummer.
His playing in "Transitions The song repeats itself entirely again and then Knudson starts putting his Kaoss pad to good use. A Kaoss pad is a piece of equipment that is able to record short guitar clips and then it plays it over and over again, non-stop. The guitarist loops the guitar riff that starts the song and then he starts to record the same riff chromatically until it becomes a complete mess.
