Time for some Post Punk from Rich's collection.

Rich attended this gig on 7/20/82 and his friend recorded it. This was an unannounced show.

There does seem to be a recording in limited circulation with a date of 7/19/82, with the exact same set list.

Gang of Four most definitely did NOT play on 7/19.  Copies that made it into cd trades, were just mis-dated.

There was a tape flip during the middle of track 12, otherwise complete.

I've included photos of the j-card and cassette.
