Custard Flux: Live in Chicago

Psychedelic rock band Custard Flux played a half hour set at the Montrose Saloon in Chicago on April 21, the opening night of the International Pop Overthrow Festival. The tracks were recorded on a Tascam DR-07mkII, making it warts-and-all document of a band performing in a small room and having a ball..

Taking into account that this was drummer's Nick Pruett first live outing and Brian Arvo stepping in as a last minute replacement for Timothy Prettyman, Live In Chicago is suprisingly tight, with band leader Gregory Curvey and Vito Greco locking into a groove with their guitars.

They played a few songs from the latest studio album Phosphorus, but also threw in an on-point renditions of the 2018 single The Hit Parade and signed off with a rollicking take on Supernatural.
