To celebrate/commiserate a remarkable 20 years performing together, in September 2013 Belshazzar’s Feast recorded their first live album, finally capturing in a recording what sell-out audiences have been enjoying for two decades.
The album was recorded by engineer and co-producer, Andy Bell over two consecutive evenings at The Pound in Corsham, Wiltshire. This intimate venue brought its own atmosphere to the shows which involved huge dollops of audience participation, a key element of the Belshazzar’s Feast live experience.
The album features original artwork by famous English humourist and artist Simon Drew, referencing the Biblical source of the band’s name.
