(HED)P.E. - February 24, 1998

February 24, 1998
N. Kansas City, MO, Roadhouse Ruby’s North

Huntington Beach rapcore band (hed)p.e. has always been a curious lot with their albums spanning a pretty unique space into the rap-rock world. Somehow these guys have managed to survive the great purging of rap-metal bands about 10–12 years ago, and they’re coming back to town for a headlining show this Sunday.

Here’s a show from one of the band’s first tours to promote their debut self-titled album. This particular jaunt had them opening for Stuck Mojo with Skinlab. Awareness of (hed)p.e. wasn’t high at this point of their career so they did their best to convert a crowd only there for Stuck Mojo. The audio here was taken from the digital transfer of the original VHS-C video recording. I had the videos post on YouTube at one time, but for this release I’ve remastered the audio to minimize tape hiss and get a much improved sound. I imagine that most of these songs aren’t played anymore so enjoy this show from when (hed)p.e. was at an early stage of their career.

The download link is here. As always, please share, but share the link to this post rather than the direct Mediafire link. Enjoy!
