Unfortunately no official CU live album has been released. But...
Our next one will probably be a double live album. Shit, we might as well do one! I'm sure it will be piledrivin'!!!
Well, it's just that we're a lot more radical live than on record, man. 'Cause like Jerry goes totally wild! He goes nuts live. He plays shit like where my jaw drops on the floor!
-Tim Baker, Suck City interview 1986/7
In the future, we may have a custom cover done by Michael Whelan for a "live" album like Dragonslayer.

Stories from their liveshows
GREG: Aside from Tim rising up out of a coffin at the beginning of the show and battling a giant spider during “Shelob’s Lair”, it was pretty straightforward: Tim shrieking like a banshee, Jerry pulling incredible solos out of his flying V, Rob trying to reduce his drum kit to rubble, and Flint holding the chaos at bay with a wall of thunder.
ROB: Well we also used to do a song at the end of our set where everyone had a chance to do their big solos. In one part Greg would do the most unbelievable guitar solo, then Jerry would follow with an even more spectacular one, then they would appear together a play a double lead solo that would have literally raised the dead! Usually I would play along with the bass solo then I would play until my hands would bleed sometimes spraying the crowd with my precious bodily fluids, then we would end with this pounding ending that built up into a crescendo snapping at the end like a crack of a whip! Boy, I loved that part!!!!
