Young Fresh Fellows- El Sol, Madrid, Spain 2009



Here is the final live recording from the trio of shows (that I'm posting) from the Young Fresh Fellows during their tour of Spain in the fall of 2009. Much like the past two posts, this show cooks and sizzles with tasty rock 'n' roll Fellows-style. The live audio recording is crystal clear and thanks to Matthijs for recording and posting this amazing soundboard quality show. Sometimes it's hard to hear the excitement and energy of a live concert through just the sound recording, so I posting the complete video from the show (I found on YouTube) to witness a Young Fresh Fellows concert from a view on the side of the stage (here's another video from the same show, different camera angle for one song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NljGPiclmCU). The video isn't perfect, it's a little shaky and blurry at times, but it's upfront and the sound is decent. I suggest you try to sync the audio live recording with the video, dim the lights, get some friends to stand around you to yell and scream, open a cold beer and crank up the volume! Just like being there, right?...not quite...man, I really need to see the Young Fresh Fellows live again!

As a added bonus, the taper included in the download file the opening set from the Hall Monitors from Washington, DC. They have this great 60's garage rock sound that is high energy and fun that is a perfect compliment to the Fellows pop-rock-garage sound. This is well worth the listen and at this point of their career (2009) they were unsigned. They have since released a very fine record, Up To No Good in 2017 that includes some songs from the set at El Sol in 2009. Good stuff!
Enjoy!!

As the cameraman on the video I can confirm that wobbliness is down to amount of beer I had consumed in Madrid before the gig. I'd met a Madrid based friend (who had my ticket for the el sol show) at midday on the day of the show and had somehow ended up on a tour of the local bars up until not long before the Fellows hit the stage at midnight!

That I was still able to stand let alone point my cameras(I had two of differing picture quality) vaguely in the direction of the Fellows was a minor miracle!

The video sound is a mix of the audio from the original video and the soundboard recording so that you get the bass from the soundboard that was missing on the original video and Tad's cymbals along with the atmosphere of an excited Madrid crowd that didn't get picked up by the soundboard.

If you turn up the sound on the video sufficiently and open a couple of cans of Mahou trust me when I say that it'll almost feel like you were there and you can even can try shushing the crowd when there's too much chatter during Back Room of The Bar and My Friend Ringo!
