AllMusic Review by

On this 33-minute live set, Pills give some of their tracks a rigorous reworking, particularly the supercharged "Noise C'mon," (from Foundation) recalibrated at nearly 150 beats per minute. Recorded in 1993, this performance embodies the energy and excitement of the unspoiled rave scene that was flourishing at the time, before the "next big thing" hype of electronica took hold a few years later. Unfortunately, all five songs are formatted as one long track on the CD, which makes for difficult cueing. This disc was released as part of a four-CD box set in 1998.
