Read Only Memory

Another 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.
