• Died Pretty Live cvrDied Pretty Live – Died Pretty (Citadel)

    Live albums were things a band pulled out of its collective arse when members were short on ideas and had “contractual obligations” to a label. These days, they’re a  quaint anachronism in a market that treats digital singles as a currency.

    The only contractual obligation Died Pretty has these days is keeping their record label boss and manager, John Needham,in the lifestyle to which he is accustomed (that's a joke, John), so a live recording of a February 2008 performance of the cross-over album “Doughboy Hollow” at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre is probably of interest only to diehard fans.

    Guilty as charged but thousands of others will take the same plea.
