Notes: Live at the Paradise in Boston, Massachusetts while opening for Wire in 1988. Note the Hiwatt head instead of the Park head that would later become a permament fixture of the volcanic BOS sound.

live at the Ritz in NYC, circa 1989

Left to right: Robert Poss, Karen Haglof

Notes: Live at The Ritz (the old one) in New York City, around 1989. Note the shutter motion; listening to Band of Susans at high volumes (especially "Tilt") will make you see like this involuntarily.... The two pictures below of Robert Poss and Susan Stenger are from the same show, and were taken by Peter Kaufman.
