This is the second Weddings Parties Anything bootleg posted here. Another show from their early years was posted HERE.
This Recording of Independent Origin is authorized by Mick Thomas, WPA front man and songwriter.
"On July 16th 2012, Mick Thomas granted permission to host Weddings Parties Anything recordings on the Live Music Archive:"
"This sounds more than fine to me. I am aware that people swap this stuff although I have to admit I'd never heard of this particular archive. But I reckon the majority of people that buy this stuff tend to buy everything I release anyway and the live stuff that I put out is generally a little cleaned up so the archive is catering to those who have developed a taste for the raw sound that some people still struggle with. So, go for it I reckon. If you wanted to keep me informed about stuff going up there then even better.
It's said to be the last WPA gig.
