The Jam-Live

This was recorded in San Francisco in 1980 at The Warfield Theater. I saw The Jam two years later on their Trans Global Unity Tour at the same venue. I remember cutting school with two of my classmates and we spent the day poking around San Francisco having fun. The Jam were amazing that night for sure. You see, I love The Clash, but The Jam are my all time favorite band. Never really dug The Style Council much, and to be honest not much of Weller's solo output has done anything for me. I do admit though, that my wife and I saw Weller at The Warfield a few years ago supporting the surprisingly good As Is Now. We walked out half way through his set...boring. Anyways this is a radio broadcast and the sound is great. I have to admit, I really wish I was at this show as the performance is one of the better Jam sets I have ever heard.

Eye Protection

The one and only single by San Francisco's Eye Protection. I really don't know a whole lot about them but that they were kinda a new wavish/punk band. Andy Prieboy was one of the faces of the Mab scene during the heyday. Cool band name for sure

DOA- We Come In Peace

A new DOA album. I have been a massive fan of theirs since the early 80's. I always thought they were at their best with Randy Rampage and Dave Gregg. This album has some spunky rockers on here and a splattering of punk/reggae stuff played surprisingly well. They do Toxic Reasons War Hero in a punk/reggae style and it works quite well. Jello Biafra guests on We Occupy and that comes out quite nice as well. General Strike makes an appearance once again, but this time done in an acoustic style. Well worth your effort to seek out. Stand out track for me is Lost Souls...moody and cool as heck!

Here is another gem for you. This was recorded at the infamous Max's Kansas City in 1979. Yes their already is one live album from 1979 there but this was intended for release too. This is a great sounding boot. There is also a couple of unreleased songs on this. Enjoy!
