Public Image LTD - Tower Theater, Philadelphia 4-26-80

This post is a special one for me because this was the first Punk show I ever went to. PIL are not necessarily a Punk band but Johnny Rotten as the singer, and with a former member of the Clash. That was good enough for me. At that time my favorite band was the Sex Pistols but I knew I would never get to see them so this was close enough. Plus, I loved the first two PIL albums. This venue was packed with rowdy Punk rockers and it being my first Punk show was very exciting. At the time I was age 15 and had been listening to and buying Punk records for two years but never had the chance to go to see any bands even though I knew there were many great shows happening. Philadelphia's The Reds were the opening band. I took photos but my PIL photos didn't turn out. This is an audience recording and the sound quality is rough. I'll also post here my saved ticket stub and an article from my hometown newspaper about the concert.

Apostles - Punk Obituary + Extras (1985)

The Apostles were my favorite of the Anarchy Punk bands. This tape contains all the tracks from their Punk Obituary LP plus three songs from their split ep with Anathema and other tracks that only were released on this cassette. The sound quality is very good.
