Gems From the Past: Vol. 2- Winslow: Live at Obsessions
We dug deep into the vault for our next gem: another from Winslow…This time it’s a live album from the infamous Obsessions circa 2001 (I think). Those of you who have played in bands in the late 90’s/early 2000’s are no stranger to Obsessions and that prick who ran the joint, Bill. Through the years, I’ve heard many stories involving him being…well…a prick….from him stealing kid’s amps, to him taking band members into a cobwebbed room to discuss money and ticket sales, to blatant rip-offs of young bands, but we won’t get into all that. This is about us, not him and besides, it was a place to play!
This live capture features two covers (Oasis’s Wonder Wall and Bon Jovi’s You Give Love a Bad Name) that were staples to the Winslow set throughout our “career.” The never-been-officially-recorded cut entitled, “The Other Day,” with lyrics by Steve Barna also found its way onto this gem. To top it off, Louie Duva steps up to the mic for guest vocals on most of the songs and you can hear Kevin Carafa bantering in the audience. Needless to say, it’s a must listen. We even delve into part of a Folly song towards the end of the set…not without playing Slayer though!
Featuring Current Members of: Lurch, Control, Young American Artists, Killed by the Bull, Dead Teenager’s Brains, The Generator and Melissa and Paul.

-If I am not mistaken, Jamie Frost (bass) is now happily married with two beautiful children and currently resides in Cedar City, Utah.
-Yelling “BAH,” and “YOUT” was popular during the time of this recording and it can be clearly heard on these trax.
-Many of these songs are early versions of Fake Your Death songs.
–Dan Herdman is still playing music, but I am not sure of the names of his current project(s), hopefully he will see this and fill me in. He also played a vintage Gibson SG with a Bigsby bridge through a Fender twin, for this show. Sorry if I am wrong on that…it’s been almost ten years, but who’s counting?
-We had to sell tickets for this show and Steve’s brother wore a shirt that read, “MY DICK SMELLS LIKE CHAPSTICK.”
