Castration Squad - San Francisco 12-80

This band were from Los angeles and featured members who been involved in the Los angeles scene since the beginning. The line up is: Shannon Wilhelm - vocals, Mary Bat-Thing - vocals (pre-45 Grave), Tiffany Kennedy - keyboard , Tracy Lea - guitar (pre-Red Cross), Alice Armendariz - bass (ex-Bags), Elissa Bello - drums (ex-Go Go's). They never released any records and weren't around for very long. But this live show and a couple videos exist to prove the band once existed. This is a soundboard recording and the sound quality is very good.

  1. It's actually a radio recording because I have a copy of the exact same show with the same quality except high-pitched by a semitone, but the label says it was broadcasted on the KPFK radio show.

  2. Can someone reupload this or any other Castration Squad show please ? I've found three different shows over the Internet but all the links are down. I'm really eager to listen them.

  3. The show can now be found here :
