Hot on the heels of a groovy and unglued no-wave full-length on well-lauded Mexican Summer, Pill rolled into the illustrious Blue Room in Nashville, TN to play a show and use a couple recorded tracks for a live 7″. In fact, sax player Ben Jaffe was celebrating his birthday that night, and, fueled by Third Man hospitality and tequila, he played some of the most out there horn the band had seen in their time together. These recordings fully capture that energy.

The A-side “Afraid of the Mirror” you’ve gotta hear to believe. While the eponymous mantra drills into your head, the equally churning upfront bass line is sewn into an expert-level percussive fracas. Not for beginners. “T.V. Wedding” is an downhill, apocalyptic kraut jam driven forward by pulsating saxophone improvisation taking lead all over the track.
