Crunch Productions show with the Dead Kennedys from Rutgers Camden on April 20, 1985. Another show from within a year of my moving to Philly but at least I got to see them later at Blue Horizon. What a great lineup this show had – opening for the Dk’s was Articles of Faith, COC, Decontrol & FOD. At the time the largest independent punk show in the area Rutgers put the total attendance at 3,100.
Really Huge THANKS to Lenny Crunch for letting me transfer this video and put it up.
Articles of Faith Live video from the Elk’s Lodge in Atlantic City on July 26, 1985. They headlined the show with Die Kreuzen and Electric Love Muffin opening. Wide range of songs from Up Against the Wall from the Peace Comp through Give Thanks and In This Life. I would guess this is probably there last tour since they broke up in 85. Articles of Faith are one of my favorite Chicago bands. Musically they had a unique sound and the lyrics were always great both the political stuff and they more personal In This Life lyrics. Hard to say because In This Life didn’t actually get released until 86 (two years after it was recorded) but I bet that album was a big influence on DC Revolution Summer bands like Rites Of Spring & Grey Matter. They recently got back together for a show at the Riot festival in Chicago. There is some video of the reunion on Youtube or on the I have A Brain in My Ass Blog. They also released a 7″ of new songs called New Normal Catastrophe which you can get here Plus Alternative Tentacles put out 2 collection cd’s which pretty much includes everything they recorded. There page on the Alternative Tentacles site is here (then select AOF from the dropdown) Below the videos are audio files taken from the video.
Thanks again to Pete at Sounds of Tomorrow for the beta tapes and Crunch Productions for the amazing shows.
