Suicide Commandos - CBGBs, NYC 3-03-78

The Suicide Commandos were from Minneapolis Minnesota were one of the earliest Punk bands in the USA releasing their first record in August 1976. Over their two year existence they release two single and one album plus has three final songs on a compilation before having a live album of their final show released. From Feb 18 to Apr 1 1978 they were the opening band on the Coed Jail Tour with Pere Ubu. One show at CBGBs from that tour was recorded by some very nice person. They played two sets that night but I do not have the complete second set. This first set includes songs from their records, a few new songs and a cover of a song by the band Love. It's an audience recording but is good quality.
