CAMPER VAN BEETHOVEN
Spokane 2020 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Lucky You Lounge, Spokane, WA; January 5, 2020. Very good soundboard.

thestateroompresents.com:

Camper Van Beethoven’s first three albums - Telephone Free Landslide Victory (1985), II & III (1986) and Camper Van Beethoven (1986) - won widespread critical acclaim and took the emerging college-radio underground by storm, helping the band to build a large and loyal fan base. Camper further expanded its audience - and its artistic reach - after signing with Virgin Records and releasing 1988’s Our Beloved Revolutionary Sweetheart and 1989’s Key Lime Pie.

“In a way, each record we’ve made has been kind of a high concept,” guitarist and vocalist David Lowery observes. [Lowery also formed Cracker.] “The first one was playing with all these things like ska and norteno, which were the roots of the punk rock and new wave explosion that we knew. On the second record, we were playing with ’60s West Coast garage sensibilities. Then by the time we did the third album, we sort of had a sound, so we started playing with our own sound. And New Roman Times is our prog-rock concept album.”

Camper Van Beethoven have always been rule-breaking outsiders, even by indie-underground standards. “The reason Camper originally came to exist,” Lowery asserts, “was because we were rebelling against the dogma of punk rock and post-punk-rock. To us, rock had started out as a very eclectic musical form that incorporated all different kinds of things. But by 1982, punk rock had adopted all these strict rules, which rubbed us the wrong way. So we always saw ourselves as being in a tradition of classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin, Little Feat, The Kinks and The Beatles, who were comfortable trying different kinds of things. We came right at the end of the first generation of the hardcore/punk-rock thing, and our earliest supporters were people who liked the Dead Kennedys. And then we came into what became indie rock, where we were basically running around throwing little musical molotov cocktails.”

  2. I’m a skinhead and I like bowling. And roller derby!

    By Derrick on Sep 28, 2020

  3. I believe this is the first time for CVB on the BigO. They are a guilty pleasure of mine. Mostly because I forget I have them filed away. Thanks for this I’m listening now.

    By sking on Sep 28, 2020

  4. Started listening to them in 86′ Has it really been that long? Always enjoyed them. Nice to see “One of these days” on here. Glad to see they are still performing.

    By Tom on Sep 28, 2020

  11. Twernt me above. More fakes

    By U L E on Sep 28, 2020

  12. Indubitably , the middle school morons will attempt to ply their wares here , but to no avail . Derrick and I are far too savvy for the intellectually bankrupt buffoons who pollute our website .

    By HHH on Sep 28, 2020

  13. Listen to me pontificating on and on..
    Oh, and the name stealers are irrepressible. I never realized that so many retarded pre teens were out there with computer access .Where are the parents ? No wonder this world is so screwed up .

    By HHH on Sep 29, 2020

  14. I have no idea who this band is, but I bet my bottom dollar they have genitals and that’s good enough for me.

  16. Don’t forget, we hate women too.

    By HHH on Sep 29, 2020

  17. Suck on this Harmon

    By U L E on Sep 29, 2020

  18. Dont forget we take pride and joy in other peoples misery. Im so happy Trump paid only 750 and I paid 5,000

    By U L E on Sep 29, 2020

  19. You might be right, Harmon, but it’s possible Derrick HHH and the others are all some teen boy getting off on using racial slurs. Some kids are like that-so desperate for attention that even negative attention satisfies them.

    By Mark on Sep 29, 2020

  20. Shut up Mark . You actually have good music takes occasionally. It’s when you go off on your self righteous , holier than thou rants that you are insufferable. Harmon is just a troll .

    By T J on Sep 29, 2020

  21. I’m surprised that Mark hasn’t gotten on the penis train here . That’s discussed more than all the racial bullshit .

    By T J on Sep 29, 2020

  22. According to reports. Jeffery Epstein had an egg shaped Coc . Thin at the head , but then got fatter and fatter as it went back to his balls . Anal must have been painful until they got used to it . Think it was around 12 inches

    By C Tony on Sep 29, 2020

  23. 12 inches long and about 9 inches wide at its thickest point . I don’t know how and asshole could survive that . Imagine it felt great in the pussey though . Getting head must have been a challenge for all those teen girls . Also for him . How could they keep their teeth from scraping the shit out of it . Maybe they just licked it .

    By C Tony on Sep 29, 2020

  24. Ask Mark, he sounds like he has first hand experience

    By U L E on Sep 29, 2020

  25. swappers, i gots a major chubby for you boy!

    By U L E on Sep 29, 2020

  26. Hey DD , know you is a Zeppelin fan . Just listened to the 2014 remastered Led Zep 4 . It sounds fuckin great . Jimmy Page did a fuckin great job in the studio. An improvement on the original. Jimmy knows his shit in the studio . Still wish he had released how they west was won warts and all though , wit out all them edits and overdubs

    By Derrick on Sep 29, 2020

  27. Some shit that works wit studio albums don’t work the same wit live shit . Just release live shit as is like it happened. Don’t like live stuff that sounds to slick

    By Derrick on Sep 29, 2020

  28. Zep 4 is probably the best fuckin album of all time

    By Derrick on Sep 29, 2020

  29. Also liked the first 3 Sabbath albums a lot , paranoid and master of reality bein the best

    By Derrick on Sep 29, 2020

  30. Fuck DD 71 72 was so fuckin great for music . Them Zep and Sabbath albums , plus The Who , who’s next , Stones , Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street , Rod Stewart , Every picture tells a story , Jethro Tull Aqulung , The first Cactus Album , Grand Funk e plurbus funk , Ten years after , space in time , fuck man I could go on and on . It’ll never be like that again

    By Derrick on Sep 29, 2020

  31. Coons hadn’t completely taken over sports yet and acted wit respect. No mixed marriages and hi yeller kids , no rap shit , tattoos and dreadlocks

    By Derrick on Sep 29, 2020

  32. The coons on the radio back then was Diana Ross , Roberta Flack , Stevie Wonder , Marvin Gaye , Gladys Knight and the pips , Curtis Mayfield . I liked all that shit . No fuckin rap shit back then . Also Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5

    By Derrick on Sep 29, 2020

  33. I miss those days too Derrick . Back when the white man was king , and niggers still bowed to whitey . Your KKK was still around too. It’s terrible today .

    By Nelson on Sep 29, 2020

  34. I feel like I’m in a foreign country every time I go shopping. Niggers , gooks and Mexicans everywhere. They call them minorities, but it seems like white people are the minority now . Unless most whites don’t shop in stores .

    By Nelson on Sep 29, 2020

  35. Indians own all the motels and convenience stores . The white man is screwed . These niggers and foreigners are taking over the country and the world , also polluting our bloodlines with all this race mixing . That’s mainly a nigger man white woman thing though .

    By Nelson on Sep 29, 2020

  36. Everything you say Derrick is spot on. Did you know that Jimmy played sessions with Shirley Bassey-Goldfinger, Tom Jones-Its not unusual. The Kinks-You Really Got Me- The Who- Cant Explain. He’s a god. He also played on the Who’s Bald Headed Woman. Page can be heard doing a fair share of work using his new fuzz pedal. On top of the distorted intro, you hear Page’s licks toward the end of the track as well. he owned the only fuzz box in the country at that time.”

    By David Duke on Sep 29, 2020

  37. Personally, I’ve alwayd loved their first album the best recorded in only 30 hours. Then IV,II and III. After IV, they went downhill, Roberts son Karac died, Jimmy was dealing with H and Bonzo was drinking himself to death. JPJ was the only one who stayed straight during their last years. He was responsible for In Thru the Out door. Only song Page did was In the evening. By that time Plant and Jones wrote all the other songs

    By David Duke on Sep 29, 2020

  38. Listen to some of his you tube interviews. he’s very soft spoken but a perfectionist. I didnt know Townsend and Page disliked each other. Townsend feels Zep is all noise. Some great bootlegs out there sound like soundboards. I rate Pagey one then Hendrix.Watching him bow the guitar and do the theremin freakout in whole lotta love was great. They always performed alone because everybody knew they couldnt touch them. Never will be another zeppelin

    By David Duke on Sep 29, 2020

  39. The summer of 70-73 were great years for music and sports. The Stones were great Let It Bleed, Sticcky Fingers, Exile, Beggars Banquet. Jethro Tull-Benefit. The Who Live at Leeds-Ten Years After - Cricklewood Green Cactus Grand Funk-Im Your Captain, Humble Pie, Sabbath- first album was their best imo, then paranoid then master of reality

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  40. last nites game was a joke. mahommes blew away lamar. cant wait to see the yankees get beat up by the Indians. Bieber vs Cole.

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  41. Personally, I blow donkeys.

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  42. David, it looks like the name highjackers got you again. It’s obvious those aren’t you. When will these retards realize that they aren’t fooling anyone?

    By HHH on Sep 30, 2020

  43. Eating ass was GREAT in the summer of 70-73!

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  44. Jerking off to gay porn was second best!

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  45. STFU HHH you fucking fairy!

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  46. HHH don’t you have pants to shit in???

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  47. Black Dog was played to death on FM in late 71 early 72 . Then Stairway. Guess that’s what drew me to em in the first place and why I’m partial to 4 . After that I got into their catalog and Zep 1 is number 2 for me

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  48. Jack my dik high, fuckface.

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  49. Oooo bitch fight I LOVE it!!

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  50. …sob… sob… sob… poop…

    By HHH on Sep 30, 2020

  51. I agree Zep 1 is more raw and unadulterated . Like live in the studio . That’s a good thing . These days you wonder who’s doin what . The musician or some computer

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  52. I got s 4 inch woody now!!

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  53. Gonna rape me a chicken!!

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  54. Back then you usually had everybody in the studio at the same time .not these fuckin days though

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  55. Don’t get why Townshend and Page hate each other so much . I know that Daltry and Plant was friends , also Bonzo and Moon was buds

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  56. I have some really rare outtakes of zep when they first started rehearsing. Wish I could send. Too many infantile jackoffs out there. Fuck em all Derrick and HHH.

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  57. Derrick, the story is that Jimmy was blowing Pete before a show and Pete ejaculated into Jimmy’s mouth, after promising not to. This greatly angered Page, who preceded to take a shit into one of Townshend’s empty guitar cases and then wipe his ass with one of Pete’s white blouses.
    Their friendship never recovered from this.

    By HHH on Sep 30, 2020

  58. Pete Townshend Hates Led Zeppelin…Jealousy or Joking???
    by Raul on August 19, 2013 in Led Zeppelin, The Who

    Pete Townshend vs. Led Zeppelin – Both bands had the best drummers in the world (Keith Moon & John Bonham), both bands had arguably the best lead guitarist of the time and both Pete and Jimmy Page played a double neck Gibson SG.

    Jimmy Page Pete Townshend The Who Led Zeppelin Rivalry

    So why does Pete Townshend have so much animosity for Led Zeppelin??? Here are some quotes by Townshend about Led Zeppelin…

    Pete Townshend at inaugural John Peel lecture –

    ”Did he [Peel] really give Led Zeppelin their big break? I can’t see it myself. I don’t give a shit about making money. I think rock music is junk. I am a genius! The Who were OK but without me they would have all ended up working in the flower market, or worse – in Led Zeppelin.”

    In a 1995 interview, Townshend talks about Led Zeppelin,
    “I don’t like a single thing that they have done, I hate the fact that I’m ever even slightly compared to them. I just never ever liked them. It’s a real problem to me cause as people I think they are really really great guys. Just never liked the band. And I don’t know if I have a problem, block too, because they, well that became so much bigger than The Who in so many ways, in their chosen field, I’ve never liked them.”

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  59. The Who and Led Zeppelin only shared the same bill one time on May 25, 1969 at the Merriweather Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland. At the end of The Who’s set, Pete sarcastically said to the crowd,

    “We’d like to thank Led Zeppelin….for what they did to you earlier this evening.”

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  60. Twernt me. I prefer Big Uns.

    By U L E on Sep 30, 2020

  61. Derrick, the story is that Jimmy was blowing Pete before a show and Pete ejaculated into Jimmy’s mouth, after promising not to. This greatly angered Page, who preceded to take a shit into one of Townshend’s empty guitar cases and then wipe his ass with one of Pete’s white blouses.
    Their friendship never recovered from this. True story.

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  62. Derrick/HHH, cant believe the fucking debates are on tonite. hope they show rerun. wanna watch the indians scalp the yankees

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  64. Keep stealing our names and get reported, assholes!!!

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  65. The asshole pretending to be me look a few comments above and you typed the same thing. fuckin moron. tell my mother to keep trying to shove horse penis into her toothless mouth and cavernous vagina, that smells worse than HHH’s shit covered ass.

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  66. i’m sick of this. you assholes are getting reported!

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  67. I rather rank on swappers that gibbering monkeyass. Whenever he retorts, they make no sense. dumb as oup. poor boy missed his med. so infantile swappo. hit me with some hard shit like yur wife gives head on carnaby street

    By U L E on Sep 30, 2020

  68. im into sucking off goats and mixing it into my goats head soup. heres a tablespoon for u swapporino

    By U L E on Sep 30, 2020

  69. My wife loves to go dogging into the woods and give strangers blowjobs while I watch. Im such a cuckhold and she knows it. She knows I cant stand up to her. She tells me to shit. I ask what color. Thats how whipped I am. Pretty pathetic

    By U L E on Sep 30, 2020

  70. Twernt me above. I’m not married

    By U L E on Sep 30, 2020

  71. Nope. Never said that

    By U L E on Sep 30, 2020

  72. Assholes are good to eat out mmmmm

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  73. Lickin sphincters is phun!

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  74. Dookie you fucking degenerate FUCK YOU!!

    By HHH on Sep 30, 2020

  75. Ignore the Dic suckin name hijackers DD , I can tell who’s really who

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  76. I sucked a hairy dik for lunch.

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  77. It sounds like the only dude wit a issue in both groups was Pete for some reason. Too bad cause I loved both bands

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  78. I don’t know shit about nuthin

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  79. Maybe Pete was jealous of Jimmy . Pete was great on stage and a great showman , but Jimmy knew more licks and was more versatile. Who’s next and Led Zep 4 came out three months apart in 71

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  80. DD , what did ya think bout houses of the holy ? The album wit the naked kids on the cover . Aldo Physical Grafitti ?

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  81. Derrick, you’d be best advised to NOT discuss, “naked kids”.

    By U L E on Sep 30, 2020

  82. FRom Houses of the Holy to In through the Out Door, I didnt enjoy them as much as I did in the early years. H of the Holy to me was when they started to decline. BBC sessions and Coda are very good imo. Too bad we cant have normal conversations anymore with the assholes runnin wild in here

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  83. This has to stop. The fakes using our names have to be stopped. I’m not kidding, these assholes are getting turned in

    By David Duke on Sep 30, 2020

  84. I would love to mouthfuck Mark

    By U L E on Sep 30, 2020

  85. https://www.thumbzilla.com/tags/futanaria

    my fave website. enjoy guys

    By U L E on Sep 30, 2020

  86. Yeah DD , Zep 4 was their last super great album . I did like the first 2 songs on HOTH . Song remains the same and the rain song , maybe also over the hills and far away . The rest was average. The only song I liked on Physical Graffiti was Kashmir , a great song

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  87. Presence and In through the out door were not very good at all . Didn’t care for none of the songs . Think they was all gettin tired of each other by that point

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  88. Never really cared for The Who after Moon died either. Kenny Jones just didn’t do it for me . Keith Moon joined Zep on stage in 77 at the la forum to do the encore . They is a bootleg of the show called for badge holders only

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  89. Keith died less than a year later in 78 . They should have quit after that . At least Zep had the good sense to break up when Bonzo died

    By Derrick on Sep 30, 2020

  90. Thanks for the mentions guys ( I say guys!?) but the post is not me and as for the references to me well guess I’m just living in your poor little heads for free huh?
    I’m outta here and only pop by for the music and defend any slurs

    P.S. when you quote me it helps if you can spell “Dumb as SOUP”!

    Have fun y’all circle jerkers ;)
