SHRAPNEL made a few appearances in these pages years ago, but this 1984 live tape is a recent acquisition. Total screamer of a set, with almost comically "aw, shucks" between song banter. Board recording, and the guitar come up in the mix until around the 60-second mark....but when it does? The quintessential primitive punk buzzsaw sound is fukkn perfect. Eleven tracks spanning a touch over one half hour, and if you can't sing along to the chorus of "Let There Be Anarchy," then I don't really know if there's any hope for you.
