I posted a flac version here earlier yet the admins correctly moved it to the lossless forum. My apologies for causing extra work (was trying to get these shows to a wider group of collectors.)

-- I have found many great shows here and have given back to this forum when I can.

Here's hoping some fans enjoy this collection of MP3 'orphaned tracks' -- to borrowed rocdoc's phrase.

Long before the White Stripes appeared with a minimalist duo sound, Bryan Harvey (guitars, vocals) and Johnny Hott (percussion) recorded several very good ‘indie’ albums (Monkey On A Chain Gang, Tantilla, Cakewalk -- on Rhino and other record companies.) From 88-94, they were critics’ darlings as they mined a rich vein of southern influences, appropriate for artists who had come of age in Richmond VA.

And they were awesome live! As a duo or the four piece tour band (w Steve McCarthy of The Long Riders and Bob Rupe of The Silos

These live songs were discovered on archive,org in the Steve Wynn section as Bryan and Johnny were part of the ‘alternative supergroup’ Gutterball. During Gutterball tours in 1993 and 94, Bryan, Johnny and friends) would play a mini-set of House of Freak songs. I grabbed many of the songs and then made a composite mix of some of the best of them; I wish there were even more varied tracks to pick from.

We remember you well Bryan, RIP.

glad you found this RD, hope you enjoy the live music -- their first two recorded albums are especially strong and were reissued by Rhino with extra tracks -- I highlight recommend Tantilla, the second album--

-- and yes they caught the two killers -- that horrific crime was the inspiration for the recent Drive By Trucker's song "Two Daughters and A Beautiful Wife."
