‘What Day Is It Tonight?’ accomplishes pretty much everything a live document should...

Gonzo Krautrock math-disco veterans Trans Am’s shows have regularly exceeded their discography for pure spasmoid rock party thrills, not least when regularly setting cymbals ablaze, making a live album a fairly sage step for the US threesome. That the record spans their 15-year lifespan puts the kybosh on continuity a touch; see announcing your last song in the middle of an album. However, that’s generally overridden by sheer dumb fun within cuts like synth-drenched supermarket ode ‘Tesco V Sainsbury’s’. Throw in an accompanying DVD adding visual stimulus and ‘What Day Is It Tonight?’ accomplishes pretty much everything a live document should.
