Received an 8.0 rating from Pitchfork. Back in 1983, Athens, GA legends PYLON had just released Chomp, their second album and toured the country extensively, and played several opening slots for then up-and-comers, U2. Without a hint of explanation, they suddenly quit. This is their final show at the Mad Hatter in Athens, full of a frenzy of minimal disco thud, post-punk guitar scree and deliriously inspired howl. There’s little arguing that the Athens powerhouse trifecta of R.E.M., the B-52’s, and Pylon is peerless. While all three bands have achieved great critical acclaim, only the first two had the commercial acclaim they deserved. Pylon Live intends to correct that. “RANDY BEWLEY & MICHAEL LACHOWKI's simple lines display untoward rhythm & melody, respectively. CURTIS CROWE bangs away so obdurately it’s hard to understand why he didn’t become rich. VANESSA BRISCOE HAY barks & brays whatever incantatory phrases seem called for. Timeless. Cool.”—Robert Christgau
