"My favorite of the line-ups under this name, the sextet Eugene Van Beethoven did a three week non-stop series of dates in Europe during the Gulf War. The Hamburg Markethalle show was early in the series so in the intial round of tinkering with live tapes I didn't pay that much attention it. The soundboard recording surfaced eventually and shows that soundman Eppo Kroll had a good feel with this large room and its possibilities for big thick sound. The program mixes originals, cover versions, has a strong anti war focus as well as jazz covers-Ask me Now by Thelonious Monk, a Pharoah Sanders medley-and also includes two sections of the Post Day of the Dead suite."
