Superchunk return to their long-running live album series with Clambakes Vol. 7: Shut the F*ck Up!…No, We Love You – Live at the Corner Hotel 1996, which is by far to be the longest title in the whole lot (head to the Merge Records site to catch up). The show specifics: Melbourne, Australia, November 23, 1996. That’d be the year landing between the release of Here’s Where the Strings Come In and Indoor Living. And the reason for the season:

“To celebrate our return to Australia,” leader Mac McCaughan writes beneath the SoundCloud share, “we take you back to the last show of our last visit and a Clambake recorded live at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne in November 1996. It sounds like this was a fun night and I’m sure it was—Smudge and The 3Ds were on the bill—so please excuse a few glitches in the recording and enjoy the energy circa ’96. Looking forward to seeing you again shortly.”

Shortly indeed. The men and woman behind the entire Merge Records mini-empire will play back-to-back nights in Brisbane beginning Monday, November 11, and will do the same in Melbourne starting Friday, November 15. More info and further dates below the player.
