Liberty Leg

Liberty Leg Live at the Hall Mall

Liberty Leg has been around since 1999, first in Iowa City, and then New Orleans and now Iowa City again. It's a 2 piece plus vocals band, like White Stripes, but White Stripes sounds like complete wimps by comparison.

This recording is kind of distorted for reasons i don't entirely understand but I think I need to adjust the gain & limiter on the H4 when I record loud music this close. I still think the set sounds great, though. It was absolutely blistering being there. Ethan (the lead singer) has a distinctive voice and by the end of the set he looked liked he needed oxygen -- he gives everything he's got for every song.
