TLASILA Flood: Rehearsal (25 Aug 94) + Performance (27 Aug 94)


Rat Bastard installed the sound system at Churchill's, and by default ran its board most evenings. This gave TLASILA cover to conduct late night tests of new material on a large stage, through a very powerful (though occasionally grumpy) PA, before audiences of destitute Little Haiti residents and passed-out rugby fanatics...
