AllMusic Review by

After the murder of singer Mia Zapata in 1993, the remaining Gits decided to make a change and formed Evil Stig ("Gits Live" backward) with Joan Jett to record an album and perform a benefit concert in 1995 to the memory of Zapata. Seafish Louisville acts as a fine example of another sort of memorial for Zapata, as it highlights her rousing, powerful voice. The album is primarily a collection of live recordings of this Seattle band, with outtakes and such sprinkled in. The music is pulsing, driving, and at times will take on a grungy, metallic taste. The final track is an instrumental, almost as if the band demonstrates the massive loss they feel personally, as well as how central Zapata was to the sound of the Gits.
