RKL live cassette tape (1987 the Farm)
In the 80's I was going to some shows with a small hand held recorder. I think some of the shows I recall taping were Absolution, and Swiz in Albany ny on a trip home to visit, then there was DRI & Discharge @ the farm when Discharge got booed off the stage and drI threw a garbage can at them. Another would be this RKL set from the farm. The band was introducing some new songs for their new LP "rock n roll nightmare", but played the 7", the keep laughing LP, and more.
Its just so hard to explain to people how amazing a live band the Rich Kids On LSD were in the 1980's. I miss every thing about these fuck ups...They could get as wasted as possible and still play flawlessly.
I was at my moms last weekend and found a bunch of my old tapes, this one was in it. so stoked...I'm still trying to uncover the drI Discharge tape... my buddy Mike J who also does a blog has a copy, I know that. I gave it to him in around 1990.
