11 Hovercraft (With Eddie Veddar) #
# opening set from Eddie Veddar's wife's band
The year was 1995. Kurt Cobain was dead and Pearl Jam mania was in full swing. I was a fan of both of those bands and I believe that I had already heard some Foo Fighters music on one of Pearl Jam's Self Pollution radio broadcasts. So when I heard they were coming to town I definitely wanted to go.
I didn't pick up a ticket though. They were opening up for Mike Watt and were kind of under the radar. The show was also the day I was getting back from talking my daughter to Disney Land out in California. I was gonna play it by ear and see how I felt after driving all day. I didn't think it would sell out.
Then while we were in California I saw on MTV news that word was out Eddie Veddar was playing in Watts band and his wife's band Hovercraft was opening up. It sold out immediately after that.
I didn't even bother to try and go. I of course heard glowing breathless reviews of how great it was. So years latter I was super glad to get a copy of this recording. I'm not sure who the taper was and I have no idea what gear was used. It's also not the best recording ever. A solid B+ though and totally listenable.
Thanks to Dan Utter for the mastering tweeks. Enjoy
