Some new BOC "That Was Me"

Recommended Posts

My first concert was BOC on the Fire Of Unknown Origin tour. Good to see they are still going with a few original members.  This song is actually good IMO. There's even a cowbell reference in the video.

I love them! However, this isn't the kind of song I expected from them. It's too heavy and lacks those fine nuances that makes them recognizable. I am looking forward what else the new album got to offer.

Bence.

I saw them a few years back in Washington State at a casino with Foghat. BOC was so good we left early. The guy who played guitar for Foghat was killer. BOC actually made and announcement in between songs and said  "We are going to take a second and tune our guitars so they sound good". It didn't help.

I saw them back in the day (early 1980s) numerous times under their alter-billing  "Soft White Underbelly" in super small venues .  Back then, they were ferociously good  live with so many great songs.  They are still one of my favorite bands.  The new stuff is okay, but I honestly wish it was a little better.  The Who's most recent album was surprisingly good (once you remove a couple of filler tracks); I am hoping that BOC hits that same upper tier.

I also saw them on the Club Ninja Tour. Ronnie Montrose was in the bill. Poor BOC.  You can't hold a candle to Ronnie. It was at the Santa Cruz Civic Aud.

I'll bet they were great back then.  

I saw them live from Secret Treaties right to a year or three after Godzilla came out.  I hate to say it but they had really gone downhill by the last show.

The last Who album was better than I expected it to be.  It had its moments but not the same when half of the band isn't around any more.

After Quad they don't impress me much. Numbers had a good song or two and Who Are You the same, then Face Dances and It's Hard. What trash. Saw the original Farewell Tour, of many they did. They were okay. Loud.
