Vintage Uncle Tupelo: Critical Mass Live 1988 Pt. One

I love this clip! This was recorded in December 1988 in the bands practice space/ apartment in their hometown of Belleville, IL for the local public access show "Critical Mass". Jay, Jeff & Mike are all so young and eager at this point. You can see thier discomfort in the interview section, but once they start jamming their skill and confidence really shine through. I find it fascinating that even then- they had just put out two self- produced demos and were completing their third and final one (Not Forever, Just For Now) and were about to start making their debut album "No Depression" the following year- Jay's voice remains unchanged from today. Enjoy!
