Distro Item / husband&wife "Live At The Bishop, April 20, 2013" 2xLP + Concert Film + MP3

from Flannelgraph Records

XRA Records' final release

"April 20, 2013 was the very last time that husband&wife ever played a live show, or ever did anything at all. And like every XRAfest or XRA album release show before it, in that moment, it felt like it really, truly mattered. The show was a massive, emotional, celebration of a band that had made it work well for more than a decade. At least seven official members, innumerable contributors, four full-length albums, two 7″ singles, scattered EPs and collections of demos and live material, tour dates, my god, so many tour dates…all of that building excitement, hopeful experimentation, and rallying support came crashing together into one final singularity on that night at The Bishop.

Now, as a tribute to the band that created and sustained XRA Records for it’s entire life cycle, and as a final nail in the coffin of this collapsing, wheezing, enterprise, we’re offering the official document of that magical night on 2 LPs, mp3s, and a concert film!

With a track list that spans from husband&wife’s very fist demo release to it’s final 7″ single and everything in between, this warts-and-all live recording and concert film captures the DIY, never-say-die, quitters-never-win spirit that fueled everything the band did all the way up until they quit, and the band died. Applause, cat-calls, guest musicians, surprising musical twists and turns, tears, and cheers pepper this collection with true, palpable excitement and bittersweet remembrances of the anecdotally nicknamed, “World’s Nicest Band”. Were you there? Will you return to the well with us one last time?"
