—Realeyes - Live At The CBGB's, 1992
Babes In Toyland performing “Realeyes” live at the 1992 CBGB’s in New York. From the 34-minute sixth track, “Fontanellette” of BIT’s 1993 EP, Painkillers.
This has to be one of my favorite versions of “Realeyes”, and Kat’s screaming is perfect here! Not to mention the perfection of the distortion. She sounds so restricted and stressed out in the best way possible - and to me, it goes with the mood of the song and it’s lyrics. That last belt gave me goosebumps, I swear. I love her yells and screeches. Anyway, love ya, Kat! I hope they perform this when they get “reunionize” (in Kat’s words).
By the way, I went through hell and back to upload this to Tumblr. It’s personally from my physical copy of my Painkillers CD (I don’t do that digital shit), and it is hell to upload songs from your music library. I’ve been trying to do this for months. So, enjoy! ♡
