As mentioned earlier I recently came across some minidiscs with a few shows from the Napalm Death tour in 2000. Today I borrowed a MD player from a friend and had a quick listen to the discs. Most of them sounded like shit, but I think I can do something with a few, so I will at least transfer them to my computer and see what happens when I start to turn the knobs slightly.
Among the discs was a show taped in Belgium December 10th 2000 and if you really know your Nasum history you might remember that Jesper had to leave the tour with three shows left due to some important exam he had to take. Those three last shows included somw very rare Nasum shows with a line up consisting of Mieszko and I, Shane Embury, Jesse Pintado and Mitch Dickinson (of Hersey and Unseen Terror fame, then working with odds and ends on the tour) in a few different formations.
This is really rare shit and it was quite fun listening to the show and remembering that we never rehearsed properly with Shane and Mitch (who shared bass duties), just going through the songs "unplugged" in dressing rooms and on the bus. Quite amazing that we managed to compile a short but sweet setlist during those conditions.
Anyway, allthough the sound is far from good on this recording I will do my best to share it with you all in a few weeks or so.
There might be more rare stuff coming along, like a few exclusive rehearsal tracks and so forth, something that might be considered as companion material to "Grind Finale".
