I dunno how I forgot about this one, especially as I’ve posted the Roxy side of this old Camden Market bootleg tape ages ago. So here yer go, this one’s from May 1st 1982 at The Rock Garden in London .
Johnny s on stage crowd baiting banter is some of the finest chatter off his box I’ve heard from him. He’s not in a good mood, he wants a joint, gets angry with a member of the crowd; some times obnoxious and offensive, but never dull. The playing is loose and shambolic at times not a car crash of a performance, but there are a few near misses. Anyway you know what to do if you want a blast of Thunders ….HIT IT!
"Easy Action are rapidly bringing their first Johnny Thunders project to fruition. Hurt Me, Johnny's 1984 "rebirth" LP, will be remastered and re-issued as part of a 2-disc set. The second disc will be Johnny's 6 December 1983 acoustic performance at Dingwalls in London. The Dingwalls show was essentially the London launch party for the LP, and JT played a long set full of classics and new stuff. Just him and a guitar.
The liner notes have been composed by the inimitable British journalist Kris Needs,
Easy Action is working with the members of the Chatterbox forum to bring you long-out-of-print and never-heard JT material. This is not a bootleg enterprise; JT's estate is fully involved."
