A Live History of Gluttony & Lust is the acclaimed "live" version of the classic Houdini record. Never a band to court convention of any kind, LHG&L is not "live" in the traditional sense, but in the purest. There is no crowd noise, because there is no crowd. There is no between-song banter, because there's no audience with whom to engage said banter. No, friends, this is not a concert recording, but rather a live recording of King Buzzo, Dale Crover, and Trevor Dunn playing Houdini in an abandoned warehouse. The sound is immaculate (as one generally expects from a MELVINS recording) and the performance, in my opinion, outshines the 1993 studio recordings. Over the years, Buzz and Dale have proven time and time again that they're comfortable pushing the creative envelope as far as they see fit. It keeps the band inconsistent and unpredictable, which makes them interesting. Despite all their token ribs and pranks, LHG&L proves that, to paraphrase an ALABAMA THUNDERPUSSY song, rockin' is indeed their business.

Great sounding performance. Houdini is probably my favorite Melvins. Thanks
