Recorded at a party in a Detroit storefront in 1988, this live recording of the Gories captures the band at their apex. The ferocity, intensity and grit that come through this record is a testament to why the Gories oeuvre has been heavily mined for the past two decades by hundreds of poseurs, pretenders and johnnycome-latelys. The dual-guitar attack of Dan Kroha's smooth Fender Jaguar and Mick Collins screechy Kent Videocaster, coupled with the snare-less, cymbal-less, bass drum-less primitive drumming of Peggy O'Neill forms a perfect meld of 40's blues, 50's R&B, 60's garage and 70's punk. Dare we say it, but in terms of influence and reach, the Gories were the Velvet Underground of their day.

* fourth full-length album from the Gories and fi rst since 1993
* first-ever live album
* features covers of songs by the Stooges (''Real Cool Time''), Willie Dixon (''I Just Wanna Make Love to You''), John Lee Hooker (''Boogie Chillen'') and more
* key markets: Detroit, Memphis, New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, Seattle
* booked by Dave Kaplan at the Agency Group
* recommended if you like: the White Stripes, Flat Duo Jets, the Cramps, Black Lips
* Mick Collins would later front the Dirtbombs while Dan Kroha fronted the Demolition Doll Rods
* radio promotion by Terrorbird

''The best garage band in America since the '60s. Very primitive... they made people with Les Pauls and Marshall amps look like idiots.''
 - Jack White
