"This is the earliest known recording of John Peel's all-time favorite band. Hidden at the back of Mark E. Smith's bedroom cupboard for the last twenty odd years, this was never a high-fidelity recording, even after the tape has been cleaned up it still sounds like a bootleg made on a first generation cassette recorder. Having said that, it's priceless, awe inspiring, raw, grinding punk-rock stuff, full of bile and humor in roughly equal amounts. This is vintage Mancunian crap- rapping, live and dangerous. Nothing from this early gig has ever been released elsewhere: 'Dresden Dolls', 'Hey Fascist', 'Cop It', and the Fall's masterful take on 'Louie Louie' have never been available anywhere until now."
