The freeform music community often traffics in gratuitous completism in the form of extremely limited run self-made CD-Rs and cassettes. And truth be told, there’s plenty to be learned from a live take of a performance that studio details can’t teach. Take “Pull My Daisy” (named after an Beat-era exquisite corpse poem/film) off of Jackie O Motherfucker’s all-improv, all-live Freedomland.

Dusted Magazine
Their review was only somewhat favourable

Freedomland documents a series of live performances by the summer 2006 incarnation of Jackie O Motherfucker, an outfit centered around guitarist and turntablist Tom Greenwood, but with a rotating cast of supporting members. This version of JOMF is a particularly incendiary one, jettisoning the gentler folkier experiments of the Theo Angell/Samara Lubielski years, and focusing instead on a noisy, freely improvised clatter and storm. The impetus for the shift is likely Inca Ore’s Eve Salens, who also sang with JOMF on 2006’s Valley of Fire.
