As is an honored tradition, Roadburn Records will release 2 records especially for the festival itself. First up is Fu Manchu's blistering set from Roadburn 2003. Warmed up by the likes of Dutch psychonauts 35007 and Astrosoniq and Bill Steer's blues rock power trio Firebird, Fu Manchu cruised through classics like Hell On Wheels, Boogie Van and King Of The Road.
Scott Hill from Fu Manchu comments:
"Playing Roadburn back in 2003 was a blast! It was a year before we put out our "Start The Machine” release and we played a couple of songs from it live for the first time on that tour. One of the songs that’s on this live record, “I Wanna Be,” is a different arrangement than what ended up on the final studio release. We're stoked that the show was recorded and that people will get to hear it. Always a good time playing at Roadburn!"
The album will be a one time pressing of 500 on blue vinyl on Roadburn Records. Later this year, the band will release the set worldwide on their own At The Dojo label.
