Read Only Memory
experimental show with Helios playing over Chrome's "Read Only Memory"
record from 1979. Helios seems totally into the show. Experimenting in
the true spirit of Chrome. He seems much more vocal in this one than in
the "Read Only Memory" show that he played a couple of months ago in
Hollywood. Hey, maybe it was being in San Francisco, the birth place of
Chrome that brought even more out of Helios! This looks like a really
fun show, I would have loved to have attended it. Unfortunately, Helios
just mentioned that this will be the last of his experimental shows and
that now they will consist of the full band. This is by no means a bad
thing at all, I'm just saying that I would have liked to have attended
one of these special sort of shows. For lover's of Chrome's insanely
experimental acid-psych classic "Read Only Memory," this show must have
been a trip, with Helios just having fun with effects, guitar and
vocals over-top of the original Chrome album! Check out the footage of the show below thanks to Kevin Hobbs.
