New York 2014 [no label, 2CD]
More Fun In The New World - complete album

Live at the City Winery NYC, New York, NY; August 24, 2014. Very good audience recording.

All X original members: Exene Cervenka, John Doe, Billy Zoom & DJ Bonebrake will be performing!
4 albums. 4 nights.

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? X will be performing a couple new tricks this year. With our 4 album plays in LA, NYC, Chicago and Cleveland the band will be performing their first four records in their entirety with guest musicians helping the band to recreate live the recorded versions of their songs. Some of the songs have never been performed live by the original lineup. - xtheband.com

Still whole, still strong, X are playing, deep in their fourth decade, like a band in renewal - and poised, if they choose to write again at this level, for renaissance.
– David Fricke, Rolling Stone 7/15/14

Three decades after the inception of X, one thing is clear: X was not only one of the most influential bands to crash out of the punk movement of the late ‘70s, but the band’s music continues to be sonically groundbreaking today. Songs written during the group’s inception are as relevant and inventive today as they were in 1977.

The fact is, no one sounds like X and no one ever will.

Thanks to larryrulz for recording and sharing the show at Dime.

larryrulz noted: “One of my favorite albums of all time from start to finish… amazing! This is a very intimate venue with good acoustics. The band was loud as hell but there was minimal distortion. The vocals were often too low in the mix. There is a single live level adjustment at the beginning of track 01. Overall, this is an excellent recording.”

  2. What a fine gift to give to their fans, and a wonderful way of introduction to others. And BigO extends their gift. I’m not saying that it’s not been done before, but what a nice gesture all around.
