JOHNNY THUNDERS - Live @ Pustervik, Goteborg, Sweden 11/12/85


Another day, another memory….Nikki Sudden, Joey Ramone, and now…. Johnny Thunders, who passed away in a New Orleans hotel room 20 years ago today. My personal supply of Thunders stuff has run out. I have a vast stash of other Thunders gear, but the majority has come from torrent sites, with specific instructions from the uploaders not to convert to MP3. So I’ll respect their requests, unlike those Bastard Bootleggers trading illegitimately and making cash from Johnny’s name by using the torrent files as masters for their illicit trade. If yer thinking of buying any of these from Ebay, don’t! Search the web and torrent sites, because the stuffs out there and you aint gonna be lining any ones pocket. Alternatively purchase Jungle Records officially released Bootlegging The Bootleggers, a great CD of Johnny’s work recorded between 1985-1989, and compiled by the man himself from the various bootlegs of his he’d come across, the spoken word intros from Johnny to the songs are classic. Anyway, enough….Time to put yer ears around a memory, with this here recording, I cant remember where I got it from, but it wasn’t a torrent. Dunno if it’s a copy of one of those bootlegs though, whatever, it’s a great listen. I don’t much care for the title it’s been given though, yeah I’m guilty of using drug related puns in my posts, Johnny was a drug user, but he was not a zero!

Great set list located in the comments section. I'm unable to download it due to the corporate f*cks I get my internet service through ! Land of the Free my Ass!
Any ways just thought if any one of the bloggers I fallow you'd be most interested. Keep up the fight and "Yo! give me some reverb in my monitors"
