Has anyone noticed that all the original songs from the EP have been completely neglected in live performances, possibly since 1992. Sure, My Generation gets performed live sometimes, but that's a cover they'd probably do live if it was on the EP or not.
To my knowledge, Sweet Children hasn't been performed live since 1989, at least that's when the most recent recorded performance I can find of it is from and there is no recorded live version of Strangeland that I can find, which leads me to believe it's either never been performed live or it's been played live so few times that there's been no chance for an audience recording.
As for Best Thing In Town, I've found a live version apparently from 1992, which if true, would possibly be the most recent live performance of any song off this EP. It could be a fake recording though, just a sped up studio version.
Anyway, it's crazy just how few times these songs have been performed live. Even songs from 1000 Hours and Slappy get occasionally performed, but none of the originals from Sweet Children.
This leads me to believe they were last performed in 1990 and originally had no intention of being studio recorded, but was thrown together quickly. The fact it was originally released as a one off for record label Skene! makes me think this was done for the sake of it:
"The EP is a collection of some of the band's earliest songs that they were still playing live at the time. It was recorded in 2 hours on July 5, 1990 at 6ft Under in Minneapolis, Minnesota while the band were on a brief break from their summer tour"
Anyway, thoughts on this? Has the band ever commented on this EP?
