After temporarily breaking up in late ’81, Minor Threat reformed in April of ’82 and began writing what would eventually become the all-time classic “Out Of Step” 12”. Wanting to test out this new material, they traveled north to perform at Irving Plaza in New York on May 15th. This 15-track album captures this incendiary performance that serves as a debut for the new songs. It’s obvious that the band has been rehearsing relentlessly because their set is tighter and more focused than before.
The stage is crowded with rowdy New York punks from the second the music begins resulting in total chaos. Harley Flannagan of the Cro Mags and Springa from SSD are amongst many that are singing along. Ian MacKaye delivers pure comedic gold between songs as he mercilessly berates the wild audience with a unique sense of humor.
This features incredible sound quality as this album was sourced from a first-generation soundboard cassette and was carefully mastered via Direct Metal Mastering. Comes in a color UV-gloss laminated jacket that features superb artwork and custom labels. UK IMPORT.
