Re: Live Albums

Aw shucks, I thought that was the same lineup. Still a memorable live album from back in the day, though Black Flag did several live albums.

I probably need to hear this one then?

I do think Kira's bass was distinctive and important -- she had the patience to hold things down in a trancelike manner while Ginn did his spazzy stuff. She plays on all of their "jammier" albums starting with "Slip It In" through their final studio album (Ginn played the bass himself on "My War.") Though after she quit (carpal tunnel had something to do with it and also college), they did play some more gigs before throwing in the towel less than a year later.

And Stevenson is a terrific drummer, one of the best of the punk era -- he left Black Flag for The Descendents and All (that's the band called "ALL" I mean.)
