Reverb

And it doesn't matter even if they did. The crowd at the Churchill's show was going completely bonkers throughout the entire set, fueled on alcohol, adrenaline, and who knows what else, slamming into each other in one of the sloppiest, drunkest mosh pits I've ever had the pleasure of avoiding. Kids who weren't even born when "Communist Radio" was released, old-timers who bought the record when it was new, all of them screaming the words to every song back at the band with such fervor and manic glee that Eddie O'Brien -- hell, the whole band -- couldn't help but survey the enthusiastic fools in front of them with smiling disbelief.

"The songs still work," said one of the old-timers, eyeballing the chaos from the outer rim of the sweaty pit, just before the last song skronked to a halt.

She was right.

-- By John Floyd
