Stand By Your Van
The latest in what promises to be a long line of posthumous Sublime albums features concert tracks, mostly from 1994. Don?t expect to hear later material like ?What I Got,? but do expect to be impressed with the way these well-recorded, beer-saturated club cuts capture the late Brad Nowell?s endearing-jerk charm and the band?s stage power (especially on ?S.T.P.? and ?Badfish?). Too bad Nowell?s references to substance excess dampen some of the spirit.
