Book of Kills
Jim Shelley


This version of Book Of Kills (Bill Bird - bass/vocals; Randy Simpson - guitar/vocals; Jane Firkin (guitar/vocals); Casey Firkin - drums/vocals; Jim Shelley - guitar/vocals) played "Stanley The Steamer" in a much more improvisational manner than the later incarnations of BOK. As I note before starting the song, we never really knew where exactly it was going to go and sometimes we went so far out that we almost couldn't find our way back. This is from a February 1, 2003, live performance at the now-defunct Alston's in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
