In the summer of 2015, we got a call from Daniel Gunderson asking if it would be possible to get "Ookla Classic" together as the Music Guests of Honor at Windycon 43 in November of 2016. Since 1999, the band has been split across two coasts, so we jumped at the chance to play together again. With an alarming lack of rehearsal, we performed unique sets on Friday and Saturday, and now bravely offer you highlights from both shows.
True Story: Luis' last con show with Ookla before moving to the West Coast was at Windycon 25 in 1998, a concert that was released as the live album "Sucking Out Loud."
Special thanks to Gundo and the concom at Windycon for making this happen.
Tom Garcia: Electric Guitar (Disc 2: 5-9), Crap Rap (5)
Brian Platter: Electric Guitar (Disc 1: 9 / Disc 2: 15)
Art Baltazar: Breath (Disc 1: 11)
