Belvedere - Because No One Stopped Us (1998)

Okay, this CD we do have the original version of. Which is weird, because Gene hadn't actually seen the frantic punk attack of a Belvedere show until just last month, when he took in their concert at Dickens. Gene tells us that he probably should have spent a few weeks training for the show, working his way up to music that's as fast as these guys; going from Red Autumn Fall to Belvedere is a sure-fire recipe for whiplash.

We suggested to Gene that he should have watched videos of the band playing to packed houses in Japan, South America and Spain to get a sense as to what he was in for. He's watching this one at 0.75x right now, and he says he thinks it's easier to handle:

Thankfully, the CCPS CD player works at full speed.
