The Presidents Of The United States Of America | March 29, 1996 | Studion, Stockholm, Sweden (Radio Broadcast) – 25th Anniversary Update – 2021-03-29
I have to be honest. I was envious for the Swedes for a long time. Sweden always gets to see all the major bands before Finland. With the Presidents of the USA we are still waiting for the gig in Finland to happen. Strange fact is that the Presidents have played every surrounding country: Sweden, Norway and Russia. Of course they have also played in pretty much all the countries nearby.
This concert has been one of my favorites. It starts with really a passionate two cover combo. TV Eye (The Stooges) that they weren’t meant to play (killer guitar tone by Dave Dederer…damn!), and the really hard rocking Kick Out the Jams (MC5). Also has maybe the best version of Boll Weevil…Sound quality is also top notch (Radio source)
The Presidents seems to have a time of their life, and according to Dave it was the their best show:
without hyperbole, i believe this is the best show we ever played…it was cold as hell in stockholm at the end of a long winter and most of the people in the venue (including us) had most of their clothes off by the end of the set…news flash: swedes can drink – Dave Dederer, Facebook 2018
You can also tell that Dave had few drinks prior the show (and maybe during), that’s not a sober man talking at 4:48. ;)
I miss the Presidents.
