Rezillos - Liquid Rooms, Edinburgh 12-23-11 + BBC interview 6-16-12

Here's a very recent live recording of the Rezillos that shows they still got it. They basically play a standard Rezillos set with two newer songs and one brand new one titled You're So Deep. I found this one on Guitars101 so if you want the original post go here:
I did a slight bit of editing to this version. I've also included a recent interview Faye and Eugene did with Liz Hershaw.

Judy Nylon/Idols - Max's, NYC 5-03-78

Judy Nylon was part of a band called Snatch in London with Patti Palladin. In 1977 they released their first single on the Lightning record label. In 1978 they released their second single also on Lightning. A third single appeared in 1980 and finally in 1983 an LP of single tracks and demos was released. On this show Jerry Nolan from NewYork Dolls and Idols plays drums and Steve Dior from Idols plays bass. This might be the only show where you will hear an ex NY Doll playing drums on Buzzcocks and Sex Pistols songs. Both songs from the second snatch single are played here and all the original songs would eventually be released on that 1983 album. This is an audience recording with good sound.

The Gas - Almost Complete Collection 1979-1982

In 1979 two members of The Gas were in a Pub Rock/New Wave band named Sneaky Feelings after an Elvis Costello song. That band released one single. When the sneaky Feelings split Donnie Burke (lead vocals, guitar) and Dell Vickers (bass) recruited Leslie Sampson (drums) to form The Gas. The Gas released five singles and two LPs between 1980 and 1982 on the Polydor label. Sadly, none of these releases have ever been re-released on CD or vinyl. More recently Donnie Burke has been playing in an Americana Country Blues band named Roadhouse Dogs.

Corpse Grinders - CBGB, NYC 1978

Corpse Grinders are a famous New York City band that featured Rick Rivits who was a member of the New York Dolls before they were called the New York Dolls and Arthur Kane who was a member of the New York Dolls and played on their two classic albums. The Corpse Grinders were only around for little more than a year and released one classic single. In the early 1980s they reformed and recorded two weak albums before disappearing and in 2001 an LP of demos and live tracks was also released. These two live recordings from 1978 will give you an idea of what a Corpse Grinders album would have sounded like in 1978 had they released one. Arthur Kane plays bass only on the first show. They are both audience recordings and the sound quality is good.

Rock Scene Magazine online

An old friend sent me this link to a blog that has all issues of Rock Scene magazine online for viewing. Rock Scene magazine was from New York City from 1973 to 1982The magazine was mainly a photo magazine that primarily covered the New York scene and New York bands but also stretched around the world, as well. I discovered this magazine in 1977 and thought it was the best one out bthere because it had lots of photos and little text. I think the photos told the story best. There is lots of Punk Rock in these issues, even more than what's listed on the covers, and when I have a chance I'll put together a list of all the bands and what issues they are in.

Syphilitics - You Got Nothing 1996-1998

Let's step into the 1990s this time with The Syphilitics. They were from Cincinnati Ohio and existed from 1995 to 1998. In that time they recorded three demos and only two of their songs ever got officially released, both on compilation 7" eps. The first comp. was titled Blasts From The Pasts vol. 1 (info here: and had a song from their second demo on it. The other was titled Contents Under Pressure and had a song from their last demo on it. They rarely ever played outside the Cincinnati area. In 1998 the rhythm section left and they changed their name to Black Trans Am and their sound to a more Turbonegro influence sound. Syphilitics were my favorite Punk band in the 1990s. Plenty of snot and attitude for your listening pleasure. From cassette tape.

track list:
01. Hippy Generation
02. I Don't Feel Sorry For You
03. Beautiful

Special Archives for Pat Duncan's show on WFMU

Here is another online archive for listening to live shows. This archive covers the broadcasts of this radio show from the year 2000 to 2009. There are some 1970s Punk bands (reunion shows, of course) and some 1980s hardcore - U.S. and European, plus lots of newer bands as well. Look and listen. RealAudio required, though.

Rezillos - Radio Interview + comp tracks 1977/1978

Here is a very interesting radio interview with Jo Callis and Faye Fife from BBC Radio in 1978 talking about their new album. Sound quality is very good. Also, I've included here the three Rezillos songs that appear on the rare Scottish Kultchur compilation LP that was released in 1979. These songs were recorded in 1977 and are either unreleased demo tracks or outtakes from one of their singles recording sessions. The complete LP is available here:

Revillos - Live 1981 + Session 1996

I have avoided putting these shows on the blog because I believe they are easily found in blogland but since I haven't got much new stuff to post at the moment I'll add them for those who still might not have them. The Colchester show is an audience recording that is off a vinyl bootleg album. The sound quality is good. The Colwyn Bay show is a soundboard recording and has a couple songs that didn't get released in the day. The sound quality is very good. The Mark Radcliffe session is from their reunion period and is off a radio broadcast. The four songs they play have been officially released in 1999 on the Wireless Recordings CD. This recording includes the interview with the band and the deejays in-between song announcements. Sound quality is very good.
