Prissteens - Live in NYC 1998

The Prissteens were from New York City and existed from 1995 to 1999. Their drummer was Joe Vincent who was previously a member of the Devil Dogs. They released one album and two singles before splitting up. Both these recordings are audience recordings and the sound is good. The CIH show has many new songs that never got released.

  1. Thank You!!! I loved The Pristeens but never came across any bootlegs until now!

  2. Phil in NJ, I'm glad someone out there knows and loves the Prissteens besides me. They seem to be forgotten these days.

  3. Thank you so much for this the Coney Island High show has a song i've been trying to track down for ages.... really appreciate this made my night.

  4. Which song is nit that you have been looking for?

  5. Hi i think its the fourth song mid tempo song Lori told me it was called "stormy weather" at the time... i told her part of it reminded me of a beatles song or something and she told me she thought it sounded like Abba. also "how does it feel"... just the whole set i love, i was seeing them a lot at that time and none of those songs got a proper release.
