I could never find any of the 'Spiders albums way back when, in those pre-digi-Dark Ages of yore. But I did have a cassette copy of The Cave Comes Alive with that wretched Charles Manson album dubbed on the flipside. My buddy Chet gave it to me. Chet was a great drummer and we both lost appreciable amounts of our hearing in his buddy Randy's (aka Red) soundproofed basement jam room. Or at least we thought it was soundproofed. The neighbors begged to differ, I understand.

Anyway, the 'Spiders were always more legendary thus in my mind since being so rare. Nowadays, thanks to the Intertubes, we can find their music with ease. Right? Not so right. But check out their website anyway, because - It's THE RETURN OF THE LIME SPIDERS! (That's reason enough for two shows, right?)

Many thanks to Andrew who provided the setlists for these two shows. The kindness of strangers is wonderful! (Andrew is open for trades, so check out his site!)

And buy shit!

The Slave Girl single is still one of my favorite singles of all time, what a ripper. Thanks for sharing these shows
