In 2006, Canadian southern-shock rockers White Cowbell Oklahoma headlined the opening night of the esteemed Burg Herzberg Festival. Concert-goers were wowed by the nine-piece guitar armada, which had previously only been heard about on German shores via import record shops and other underground circles. Luckily, the entire set - featuring extended, one-of-a-kind versions of tracks from Cencerro Blanco and Casa Diablo - was masterfully captured in all its bombastic, guitar lick-laden, keyboard-melting entirety, and is finally being released. Also performed were rare and unique interpretations of Frank Zappa's "Magic Fingers" and Muddy Water's "I Just Want to Make Love to You." Viva Live Locos: Alive at the Burg Herzberg Festival is indeed a chainsaw-revving masterpiece of the neo-southern rock genre.
