Buttless Chaps Experiments

If you've ever witnessed Vancouver's Buttless Chaps live, you'll know that they have a fearless love of the absurd, which makes its way into plenty of material that doesn't make it onto their somewhat normal albums. All of that can be found on this compilation of live tracks and odds and ends, which includes some of their most ridiculous moments - the techno send-up "Rave," the sci-fi "Trek Wars" and the inevitable non-ironic new wave hit "Fresh Horses." It's not all fun and games though, with "Urban Fear" and "Desert Song" standing out among new live cuts. Definitely for fans only, but further proof that the Buttless Chaps are one of the most unpredictable bands working in Canada. (Independent)
