quote: Any stories from the show itself? I was too young to attend but remember seeing the show covered on local TV news (that's how big a deal it was). I've never forgotten a station (WAFB?) interviewing some shitkicker with a cowboy hat and mustache, asking him why he was at a punk rock concert. "Cuz they rock" he replied, "They ROCK LAHK HAIL".
I was there before the doors opened. I was hanging out in the line next to two NYC punks who were absolutely pissed they had to fly all the way to BR to catch the show. I found it humerous that "punks" could afford to fly anywhere. The made sure to let me know how shitty BR was.
The band hit the stage and it was louder n shite. Sid had "Gimme a fix" scrawled across his chest in marks-a-lot. He was a real shitty player. Steve Jones absolutely carried the band. We spat at Johnny Rotten a lot. He was kind enough to spit back and denegrate us as much as possible.
I need to listen back to the show to see if it reconnects some of my synapses from that night. I was so happy to see it resurface on YT awhile back, but I just never think about downloading it. All-in-all, everyone had a great time!
