Teardrop Explodes - Left Bank, Mt Vernon NY 3-07-81

Teardrop Explodes were from Liverpool England and began life in 1979 and are the band that delivered Julian Cope to the world. Between 1979 and 1983 they released 2 albums and 11 singles. This show captures them live before the second album and features Troy Tate on guitar who had previously been in the Punk bands Index (released one single in 1979) and Shake (with 3 former members of The Rezillos). This is a radio broadcast and is very good quality. From cassette tape.
