rondelrio22 TbTST August 7, 1981 The Tubes Mann Music Center Philadelphia PA
Going through my ticket stubs I came to the realization that I have seen The Tubes more times than I remembered (15?) and pretty much at every venue in the Philadelphia area.
Always entertaining, controversial, funny and outrageous but mostly an extremely talented and tight group of musicians.
I have never, ever been disappointed at a Tubes show (even the "Love Bomb" tour though it had a few cringe worthy moments) and they always left everything on that stage regardless if they were the headliner or the support... Not to mention the fact that the appearance of "Quay Lewd" never got old. "Talk To You Later" from "The Completion Backwards Principle" released 1981 on Capitol Records.

hsanxela Artist: The Tubes
Album: The Completion Backward Principle
Year: 1981
Label: Capitol
3 favorite tracks: Talk To Ya Later, Sushi Girl, Amnesia

#nowspinning is yet another Tubes concept album, "The Completion Backward Principle." This album arguably marked their transition to a more commercial pop-rock sound. I like earlier Tubes, but this album and the next release by the group, "Outside Inside" are definitely my two favorites. The album is supposedly presented as a "motivational business platform," although I do not really get where this comes from apart from the band's photos and the writing on the back cover of the album. Seeing the band clean-cut and in suits is a big contrast from their more wild image in the 70s. I really like the band's writing on this album. My three favorite tracks are the first three on the album, in part because they make such a great trilogy of songs to start an album. Roger Steen and Bill Spooner provide some wonderful guitar work and Fee Waybill's distinctive vocals fit the songs perfectly. There's a certain sound to the album that I can't quite describe; it has almost an open, spacious feel throughout it. I started listening to this album a lot more a few months ago, and it has remained one of my go-to's since
