Venom-Live at City Gardens 7"

Yes, yes, Venom rule. But this isn't their typical sound. Instead, this is a live recording of Cronos's lovely stage banter with all the songs removed. As you can see on the flyer above, Venom toured with Black Flag, whose roadie, Joe Cole, recorded these hilarious stage antics. Thurston Moore later put this out on his label, and I think the Beastie Boys might have even sampled it. And note that evil ticket price.



  1. Wasn't sure if anyone would dig this.

  2. Brilliant, sonic youth, venom, beasties and black flag in the same, sort of, room. Shame this sort of thing never happens in Blighty

  3. It is a sort of rosetta stone of the 80s music scene I suppose.
