MERCENARY SKANK - Live @ The Marquee 19/1/85


Several treasured slightly blurred and hazy memories of these guys from 25 years ago, Fuck that’s a quarter of a century, where does time go? Blasting the past into the present Here’s Mercenary Skank, old faves of mine on this blog with a live set from The Marquee Club in London. Aaah! I can smell the beer and feel my feet sticking to the rubber floor awash with spilt pints and sweat as I type this. Great venue. Back to the music. This recording captures the rough and ready raw soul of a band out there on their own. Warts’n’all Rock’n’Roll; perfect with it’s imperfections. Passion aint a fashion!

Fantastic to hear these guys again - only ever had the two 12" releases and a few dodgy tapes from Portobello Rd. Just went to check out the myspace page and the DL files are no longer there - if you have 'em can you post here? Thanks!
