Arktik Power - Live Sat Feb 24 1990 (1990)

Arktic Power - 1991 (?)

Okay, we have another Arktik Power live show for you, this one from early 1990. And we know what you're thinking - "oh, great, are we going to have to sit through another 45 minutes of Kamil's shenanigans? Or is he going to do us a favour and pull the plug halfway through the first song?" Our answer is: neither!

We thought this tape was mislabelled at first, but Ev confirms the date is correct and that Bill E. Stew made a triumphant (if somewhat dazed) return as Arktik Power's frontman. We're not sure why - all we know is he did, and then shortly thereafter the Arktik Power split (perhaps after receiving a cease and desist letter from the detergent company? (Hey, speaking of cease and desists, we've got something in the queue that's gonna get us shut down! All we have to say is, d'ya like twins???)). And after that, Ev, Coop and Richie formed the three Huevos that we all love so well (which has nothing to do with twins, we swear - honest, Officer!).

Anways, this was supposed to be about Arktik Power. So grab this third live show, and if you can't get enough, grab two of their practices (or "rehearsals" for those who think they're hot shit) here.
