Reviews & Opinions

PUNKY GIBBON: The Germs in all of their unadulterated incompetent misery. So inept that everybody seems to be playing different songs simultaneously, and all playing their parts badly. They tune up forever between songs but it makes no difference. It ends in general chaos as glasses smash audibly and insults are traded. It sounds like fun, and it is for about five minutes, but the chronic crappiness of the musicianship begins to make every track a sludgy slog, and Darby Crash doesn't help by forgetting to use his microphone and merely yelping and gnashing his teeth when he does. A piece of history for sure - this is their first ever show - but you wouldn't listen to it twice.
