OFF! - Live - 924 Gilman Street, Berkeley, CA - 04-22-11

Label: Bootleg
Year: 2011

This post is in the wake of Ron "Chavo Pederast" Reyes being unceremoniously sacked from the current incarnation of Black Flag for multiple reasons including "being a fan of OFF!". The paranoia of Greg Ginn knows no bounds, I love it!
So, as a fellow fan of OFF! we offer up this scorching live show from their appearance at Gilman Street  in 2011, chock full of Keith Morris musings, and Demitri Coats' Black Flaggy short sharp blasts of revamped first wave hardcore. It's hard to resist, so don't.
The photo above is used without permission from Peter Angelo Saporito, which we hope is ok. We saw it, we liked it, so we used it. You can see his website here.
For a bootleg of a hardcore band playing a DIY venue, the sound quality is pretty choice. Surprisingly good actually.

Keep yr head up Chavo.

Black Flag's What The... album sounds too much like Rage Against The Machine. I really like the Flag reincarnation. Keith Morris and Dez were and still are the best singers. Anyway, Dec 14 was the 20th anniversary of Nirvana Unplugged show on MTV...
