THE LURKERS - Live @ The 100 Club, London 1982
Whenever Punk Rocks history is revisited and re-written. The Lurkers are one of the most criminally ignored and overlooked bands from the class of 1977, why???? I ain’t got a clue. Possibly something to do with their “lack of fashion” which in my book makes them more Punk Rock than those who shopped at Sex, Boy and Acme Attractions. The Lurkers were outsiders in a scene for outsiders they were always in the shadow of bands like The Clash, The Pistols and The Damned. There was no pretence or pretensions, no grand political statements, just some good old honest Rock'n'Roll. After some classic singles and a couple of great albums the band split in 1980, but came back from the dark in 1982 with a different vocalist and a batch of killer new songs like; Frankenstein Again, This Dirty Town, Heroin (It's All Over) all of which are on this live recording from The 100 Club in 1982, along with some of the old classics; I'm On Heat, Shadow and Ain’t Got a Clue. Enjoy!
Respect to bat29 @ Noise AddictionII Blogspot for the original recording.
