Blistering live recordings from the post-punk provocateurs’ incendiary performances of late 1979 & 1980 – the compilation also includes a bonus DVD of film footage shot by Don Letts.

The bulk of the salvaged live recordings comprise brawling versions of songs taken from the band’s recently reissued second studio album 'For How Much Longer Do We Tolerate Mass Murder?' The collection also features the previously unreleased '73 Shadow Street', & a surprise mutation of the Glaxo Babies’ 'Shake The Foundation'. The accompanying rare footage was filmed by Letts at Alexandra Palace on June 15th 1980 & encapsulates the band’s molotov cocktail of punk, funk, free jazz & radical politics at its most artistically concussive.
