Here's an audience recording from one of the Drones 1982 reunion shows.Three songs from this gig were released on their Expectations - Tapes From The Attic 75-82 CD in 1997. Sound quality is good.

Damned - Royal College of Art, London 10-19-78

They played this show as The Doomed. Teenage Dream and Second Time Around are introduced as White Cats songs and Anti-pope is introduced as another King song. Apparently Mick Rossi from Slaughter & The Dogs made a guest appearance but that performance doesn't seem to be on this tape. This show sounds like it is a soundboard recording. I stripped away a lot of tape hiss but some still remains. It's a good listen.

01. Teenage Dream
02. Second Time Around
03. Problem Child
04. Burglar
05. Ballroom Blitz [Sweet]
