Josef K – The Sound Of Josef K: Live At Valentino’s

More no-fi than lo-fi, this rough, bootleg-quality document released on singer Paul Haig's own label acts as a companion to 2000's excellent Crazy To Exist (Live). You need to be a fan to sift through the murk in search of what made the band—who barely managed to release an album during their mayfly career—special, but once your ears adjust to the gloom, the caustic glory of Haig and Malcolm Ross' twin guitar rattle is well worth the effort. Magical, if muddy.
