Fully 3% of each of those tweets was "1994" -- if a conspiracy, not a
very watertight one! A friend asked if I had 'em, and I dug them out of
the archives of this very mailing list. Ha!
Mergefest was July 1994. Lambchop's first Merge single, "Nine/Moody
Fucker" was February 1994. Their second, "Soaky in the Pooper," was July
1994. The first album (the one Grealey references) was September 1994.
I don't have the classic Tim Ross/Cy Rawls 100% show recall, but I doubt
they played the Cradle before Mergefest, given the logistics of hauling
14+ people from Nashville & the paucity of releases before then.
The Lambchop Total Soul Experience didn't really fully manifest itself
until the Thriller era, circa 1996, and then evolved over the next
couple of albums (What Another Man Spills & Nixon). The show I remember
most clearly & with fondest memories is actually the M10K show in Summer
'99. Of course, I also have it on video, so I suppose that helps with
the recall. But it featured the huge lineup (the band plus local
ringers) and the Mayfield & Al Green covers, etc.
