In related news, the reunited San Francisco Bay Area thrashers VIO-LENCE are tentatively planning to issue a live CD and DVD recorded at the group's December 14th show at Slim's in San Francisco through an as-yet-undetermined label later in the year. As-yet-unmixed/unedited, the audio/video recordings include an appearance by original axeman Troy Fua (who performed on the band's early demo recordings) and former F BOMB/current LAVABONE six-stringer Steve Schmidt alongside longtime guitarist Phil Demmel—a last-minute arrangement that came about as a result of guitarist Ray Vegas' decision to pull out of the gig a couple of weeks prior to the concert.
