A rare glimpse at early This Heat captured in the raw acoustics of the Collegiate Theatre, supporting The Pop Group I gather.
Sounds like a very sparse audience hiding amongst the tape hiss, but you get a glimpse of the more experimental side of early This Heat, before the more song based material crept in. A very early flowering of the progressive side of the Post-Punk era.
While the record shop racks were full of lp's by The Vibrators, The Drones, and other similar second wave new wave punkers. The real new wave were surfacing in places like this; and they weren't playing Rock music either.
