Mentors - Live In Seattle 12.28.84

Imagine, if you will, you're in your late teens or perhaps your early twenties. You just celebrated Christmas. Maybe you got a couple cool records. Or maybe even a leather jacket. You're looking forward to New Year's Eve and the big party you're going to. And then... then... the Mentors come to town. Well, that's what happened to the fine folks in Seattle some 33 years ago. A short set full of wonderfully crass between song banter. It's a wonder any of us made it this far.

Scream - Live @ Wilson Center, Washington D.C. 06.25.82

Yes, the sound quality is pretty bad on a lot of these recordings this month. But, I don't know, something about them just really takes me back. Damn it was fun back in those days! And I think you can hear it in these live shows. I know, I'm being weird. Shut up, Doc! Anyway, here's a short opening set from what had to have been an amazing night of harDCore.

V/A - Live @ Longshoremen's Memorial Hall, Wilmington, CA 06.24.83

Another jam packed show today, from 1983. We got Sin 34, D.O.A. and the Dead Kennedys. Sound's a bit muddy on Sin 34 and D.O.A., and downright BAD on DK's, but damn it sounded like a good time! Right down to the 'after show riot'.

Everybody, Get The Fuck Off The Stage!

Legal Weapon - Live @ Cathay De Grande 11.29.80

Here's a really early live set from the great Legal Weapon. They tended to pick up a little speed as their years went on. Although a bit slow it's still an entertaining set.
