Description

It was the most fuzz. And Roadburn wasn't exactly light in that regard circa 2011. The renowned Dutch festival that year featured the likes of Zoroaster, Quest for Fire, Naam, Acid King and The Atomic Bitchwax ... on the first day. L.A. by way of D.C. three-piece Dead Meadow played the last day, what was then called the Afterburner, and their slot could not have been more appropriate.

Sandwiched between Coffins and evening headliners Black Mountain on the Main Stage, they offered a mellow-heavy hour that was utterly consuming. People in the back sat down. Not out of fatigue, though it has been a long weekend by then, but just to let the warmth of Jason Simon's buzzing guitar wash over them.

Joined by Steve Kille on bass and Mark Laughlin on drums, Simon's urfuzz and unfailingly drifting vocals filled that space with a laid back vibe and groove that that Burning World Records' Live at Roadburn 2011 presents in all its Sasquatch-inclusive righteousness.

"Maybe it's 2020's effect of making one extra nostalgic for live music, the festival spirit, but the intervening nine years have done nothing to dull the luster that Dead Meadow show on 'Live At Roadburn 2011'. I can only speak as someone who was fortunate enough to be there to see it, but that set was something special, and not just because of the 'squatch. Dead Meadow sounded glad to be there, like they were rising to the occasion, like they realized it was more than just another gig, and 'Live At Roadburn 2011' resonates all the more for documenting that so well." - JJ Koczan, The Obelisk.
