The Gun Club - Danse Kalinda Boom (Live in Pandora's Box)
In the mid '90s when I moved South, many of my records were sold and this was one of those that went, but its also long been one of the records that I regretted selling so I was very pleased to find it again recently, and you'll be pleased too as I'm now able to share it here.
The Gun Club were a seminal '80s blues-punk band who, despite a number of line-up changes, managed to channel the spirits of all the dead outlaw rock 'n' rollers through their primal rockabilly howl. This is a stunning live recording of a band at the height of their powers. This line-up sees The Cramps' Kid Congo Powers taking most of the lead guitar and Patricia Morrison (later of the Sisters of Mercy) on bass duty. The performances are electric from start to finish.
Here's some live footage from 1984:
