Sham 69 - Live shows 1979 + 1980

In 1979, after much visa problems, Sham 69 finally played two shows in the USA, one in New York and the other in Los Angeles.  Here is the New York show as recorded from the audience by the legendary Donnie The Punk. It's rough on quality and the right channel drops out half way through but it sounds like it was a great gig and well anticipated. The Stockholm show is from a Swedish Radio broadcast that was recorded not too long before the split up and is great quality.
