Live at the Big Horse Lounge

Artist/Band: Mental Insect

This CD-EP from the year 2000 is the first "live" Mental Insect release. In 1997 Frank Zirbel, bassist/vocalist (former member of Chicago's seminal new wave band of the early 1980s, bohemia) decided to change Mental Insect into a live act, no longer just working in the studio. Teaming up with guitarist, Jim Glass, Zirbel and Glass auditioned endless drummers, finally finding a great one: Nate Wiencken. A rock trio was born.
To sharpen the band's skills, Mental Insect started playing in Chicago's rawest bucktown club and taco bar, The Big Horse Lounge. These recordings are from some of those gigs.

Described by one reviewer as the "true sound of the apocalypse," these songs/performances rock.
