I was listening to “Ex-Spectator” and started thinking that without vocals, it would be great post-rock, the way it builds up to that crash I’m used to hearing in Explosions In The Sky tracks. So I looked to see if there were any instrumental versions of it, and to my surprise, found 3 shows that mentioned instrumental “Ex-Spectator” for download on Dischord.
7 mins and $5 later, I had downloaded the Hamburg ‘99 show. Like in some beautiful digital music fairy tale, I only had to wish for this track to exist, and the mp3 was already on my desktop. It was wonderful.
Oh, and EITS opened for Fugazi once.
