"Lay Down Thy Raincoat and Groove"
18th July 1983
Artwork: not included
Notes: the video quality is only ggod, seems VHS tape is not first generation or time damaged it, but also there was some compression, quite strange, cause the gig is less than an hour.
The sound quality is excellent.
Info: on Crocodiles there are a snippet of Light My Fire, on Do It Clean one of All You Need is Love and of some other songs I didn't recognize.
Beezer from ZOMB, "Do It Clean and Never Stop were broadcast by the BBC on The Old Grey Whistle Test, but (as far as I know) the whole show was never broadcast.It's one of (if not THE) best performances that I've ever seen, and I saw them a lot between 81-85"...lucky guy..."The version of Do It Clean that is on here is the one that was released on the B Side of The Killing Moon 12" Single".
