"Perched in the belfry of The Chapel we caught thee mighty Oh Sees, alive and in their natural element, with our shutters aflutter and our tapes on a roll. After a short incubation period, the beast has reached full maturity and it is hideous. Over three nights they pummeled, and we've culled some great photographs, a wicked recording, and even a little live video action.
"Castle Face is happy to announce the first double LP in the Live in San Francisco series, presented on two discs, in a handsome double gatefold jacket, with live video shot by Brian Lee Hughes and his crew of merry gentlemen on an included DVD. Finally you depraved Oh Sees freaks have something to take home with you when you lose your shoes and your girlfriend at the show.
"Put it on at home and pretend to wait in line for the bathroom and it's like you're really there. The thrash, the throb, the mob is all present and pushed to the front. Dual drummers synced in each ear, Tim Hellman rounding out the bottom and Castle Face's own John Dwyer up front on guitar, lasering young brains off and fomenting the crowd to a froth – it's a great band, in a great room, with a great crowd and it's cooked to perfection... Take a little bit of it with you this time." - Castle Face
