What was more impressive, though, was how well-incorporated their flashy playing was into tight-knit rockers like "Call the Doctor." Flo and McCaughey would regularly meet up mid-stage, facing one another as their hair flew out in every direction as Dion anchored the proceedings (she didn't even miss a beat when her bass drum pedal broke mid-song).
Though there are some obvious punk influences here, their sound finds a happy midpoint between Thin Lizzy melodicism and Motörhead's aggression. Unfortunately, the vocals were buried in the mix for much of the performance, obscuring Flo and McCaughey's tuneful singing. Nevertheless, their propulsive fury proved more than capable of making up for the technical flaws.
