i was also thinking whether it might be some sort of a battery box/mics compatibility issue.
like already said, there's not "too much bass" on your recording (besides that would never be a problem - whereas too little bass always would be a problem). the bass is distorted (and without levels having been too high) which is a different thing altogether. 

would be best to find out what battery boxes are recommended with giant squid mics.

I think I just had to follow the manual and test my mics before in another concert. I don't know when I can get to see the Cranes again :cry:

Anyway, I will tape some random band and will be back with the results.

I've taped Mogwai in Paris yesterday (mics connected directly to the iRiver, no battery box used), here's attached the result.

I think is OK. Almost all the recording sounds good, just in a couple of songs (the loudest ones) the audio is a bit distorted but I think is because I was (again) close to the right speaker on the stage. So guys, never be close to the stage if you want a perfect recording :P
