"What? Another "Live" EP?
Yes, a live, four-song EP. This EP bridges the gap between ...When the End Suddenly Appears and our new studio album, due out in mid-2014.
Don't worry about the recording process -- it was pretty standard and there was very little mastering done to the original tracks. Amps were Marshall JCM-900s, JCM-900 SLXs, a couple of old JMP Plexis, and an Ampex SVT. Drums were an old set of Ludwig Vistalites -- play 'em like Bonham -- and the guitars were AttackBucker and 1984-equipped.
There are four songs on the EP, and they are four of our favorite KGS standards. In order, they are --
1. One More Mile. This was from a demo from the late 90s and it showed up on the Give War a Chance (GWAC) album from 2007. We like to open with this one because it rocks and it has a breakdown section in the middle if we want to stretch it out.
2. Last Days. Also from GWAC, this is a great riff and this has a long section at the end that is perfect for some 70s-style guitar soloing.
3. Sands of Time. While this was on GWAC, it was originally on the first Kandahar Guitar Society album from 2005. This is John's favorite KGS song and is played at every KGS show.
4. Wave Your Flag. From the Notes album, this is a very popular song both onlne and live. This song gets more streams than any other KGS song, so we have to play it live! It is also really fun to play and stretch out at the end.
