High octane pub rock n roll...
This August 2005 recording from London's Astoria was a 30th Anniversary concert and well attended too. Rock'n'roll that mixes high octane pub rock, punk and, as their superb version of 'The Kids Are Alright' shows, there's other influences too.
Mixing new tracks from the then current album Better Late Than Never with older and perhaps better known numbers (the crowd cheers let you know which they are), it's a good set, the twin guitar working well and bass is heavy too.
Singer Barry Masters (they never had a singer called Eddie, he was a doll who was recycled some years ago) handles the job well.
The performance and set list make this as good an introduction as you'll find, and it'll please fans too.
Sadly the package is very light on any extras, but the music will please anyway.
