Diodes - Horseshoe Tavern, Toronto Canada 6-80

Canada had some great Punk bands back in the day and The Diodes were one of them. They were one of the first Punk bands in Toronto and helped get that scene going by opening the Crash 'n' Burn club. Between 1977 and 1982 they released 4 albums. Here's a nice radio broadcast from the summer of 1980 that has great sound quality and all the songs you'd want to hear in a Diodes live set. Can anyone put a title track 7? From cassette tape.
