Recorded at a party in a Detroit storefront in 1988, this live recording of the Gories captures the band at their apex. The dual-guitar attack of Dan Kroha's smooth Fender Jaguar and Mick Collins screechy Kent Videocaster, coupled with the snare-less, cymbal-less, bass drum-less primitive drumming of Peggy O'Neill forms a perfect meld of 40's blues, 50's R&B, 60's garage and 70's punk. Dare we say it, but in terms of influence and reach, the Gories were the Velvet Underground of their day.
