    I tried finding some discussion/breakdown of some of the NYHC pillars that you can see in the crowd. Other than members of Warzone I couldn't find specifics. But there's alot of people at this show that were involved in stuff already at this time, or went on to big things later. Some good reviews from AllMusic and ::shudder:: Pitchfork...

    It's common knowledge among punk and hardcore fans that the mighty Bad Brains were one of the greatest live acts of all time. But unless you were lucky enough to have witnessed the original lineup during the '80s, you were in danger of having missed the legend. Bad Brains performances after the late '80s were hit-or-miss affairs (due in large part to their unpredictable singer, H.R.). Now, there is finally proof that backs up the aforementioned claim -- the fantastic 2006 DVD Live: CBGB 1982. During the holiday season of 1982, the Bad Brains performed a trio of shows (supported by the likes of Minor Threat and the pre-Beastie Boys band the Young and the Useless) at their home away from home, CBGB's. The shows were wild and widely praised as among the finest the group ever did. Compiling standout performances from the three shows, Live: CBGB 1982 presents a faithful snapshot of the pandemonium of a hardcore punk show from around this time -- slam dancers often storm the stage and scream lyrics into the mike. The band is at the top of its game (especially H.R.), with explosively high-energy readings of the punk classics "Big Take Over," "Right Brigade," "Banned in D.C.," and "Pay to Cum," as well as such reggae detours as "King of Glory," "The Meek," and "Rally Round Jah Throne." The camera work may be a bit jumpy -- it appears to be mostly a two-camera shoot (a stationary camera from behind the audience and a hand-held camera on-stage) -- and the cameramen hardly ever shoots bassist Darryl Jenifer at all. Regardless, Live: CBGB 1982 makes it all the more baffling why the Bad Brains are one of rock's all-time most underrated live acts -- there's simply no comparison between the quartet's performance here and the majority of performances by other rock bands from this era.
    Bad Brains' Live at CBGB 1982 is the audio counterpart to the recently released DVD of the same name, a sight to behold: The Bad Brains at the height of their power, HR shaking hands in the crowd, dancing like a madman, seething and stalking the stage. In the crowd are black folks and white; women and men; old and young; Rasta and otherwise. Vintage CBGB, vintage Bad Brains.The audience for this kind of creaking document is clear: Those who wish they'd been there, those who were and want to look back, and those who just really, really love the Bad Brains. There are those of us who always wanted to believe there was something different about this band, that every show they played was like an army marching to war; that they really did play that fast; that there was so little quit in their sound you could believe the four of them were invincible. And the recording bares witness in spite of (or because of) a soundboard that is, as befits a raging punk rock show, barely functional. Drums are no better than banging on a desk; the bass sounds like the lower half is missing; vocals are barely pronounced, let alone pronounced into a microphone.
    Some contest that Bad Brains were a hardcore band first and a second-rate reggae outfit second; with this release, those people may be in for a surprise. By 1982 the band had already become a full-fledged split personality, equal parts dub-reggae and searing punk rock, and the two sit aside one another with neither explanation nor any real effort to mitigate the shock of the switch. On the DVD, you see the crowd take the band's two heads in stride, but it's jarring. Robert Christgau wrote in the Village Voice in 1986, that, "As a reggae band, they were a hardcore band with a change-up," but that's understating it: Maybe a hardcore band with an eephus pitch?

    Check out this site's own archives and you'll find this gem, which says it well: "By the time they released their artistic milestone, I Against I, and reggae influences had spread deeper and deeper into their sound, the Bad Brains had already forgotten more about hardcore than most of their successors would ever learn." Live At CBGB 1982 comes at the dead center turning of the tide, nearly equidistant between the masterpiece hardcore of their debut tape and the nearly full-on reggae of their most accomplished effort in that genre, 1986's I Against I.
    The criminally under-compiled "Supertouch" appears here, three years after being left off their most recent best of; there's no "Pay to Cum", but "Banned in DC" and "Big Takeover" fill that gap. "I And I Survive", "Jah the Conqueror", and "Joshua's Song" step in as Bad Brains dub-reggae at its most evocative. In 1982, HR, their mercurial lyricist, was still looked upon as a prophet and near god, and his proclamations of "Real unity-not just talk about unity" get at the reason why.
    Of course, those lines are also colored by the band's now known future, in which misogyny and alleged-homophobia, demons that dogged HR through clashes with gay hardcore bands, prison officials, and even the Beastie Boys, loom large. Soon "real unity" would be replaced by more esoteric loyalties; peeks at the past are complicated this way. These are not particularly intelligible versions of these songs, nor are they very well recorded. So what we're left with is the raw, screaming moment. And that, for all its discomfort, is best left for the many who would, when transported back in time, be happy to be there.

    Calling out all stoner/desert/space-rock fans. Good friends of mine released their debut record two weeks ago. As I had the chance to closely follow their way leading up to this I hold it dear and think fans of the genre might like it just as much:

    Riz MC or Riz Ahmed just put out a pretty great new album. Listening to this older track and figured y'all here on ETS would dig the vibe.

    I've been revisiting a lot of Tom Waits lately.
    Rain Dogs, Mule Variations, Real Gone, & Bad As Me are all bangers, but I particularly love the laid back raw sound of Blue Valentine!

    Murder Most Foul
    Bob Dylan

    Twas a dark day in Dallas, November '63
    A day that will live on in infamy
    President Kennedy was a-ridin’ high
    Good day to be livin' and a good day to die
    Being led to the slaughter like a sacrificial lamb
    He said, "Wait a minute, boys, you know who I am "
    "Of course we do. We know who you are."
    Then they blew off his head while he was still in the car
    Shot down like a dog in broad daylight
    Was a matter of timing and the timing was right
    You got unpaid debts; we've come to collect
    We're gonna kill you with hatred; without any respect
    We'll mock you and shock you and we'll put it in your face
    We've already got someone here to take your place

    The day they blew out the brains of the king
    Thousands were watching; no one saw a thing
    It happened so quickly, so quick, by surprise
    Right there in front of everyone's eyes
    Greatest magic trick ever under the sun
    Perfectly executed, skillfully done
    Wolfman, oh wolfman, oh wolfman howl
    Rub-a-dub-dub, it's a murder most foul

    Hush, little children. You'll understand
    The Beatles are comin'; they're gonna hold your hand
    Slide down the banister, go get your coat
    Ferry 'cross the Mersey and go for the throat
    There's three bums comin' all dressed in rags
    Pick up the pieces and lower the flags
    I'm going to Woodstock; it's the Aquarian Age
    Then I'll go to Altamont and sit near the stage
    Put your head out the window; let the good times roll
    There's a party going on behind the Grassy Knoll

    Stack up the bricks, pour the cement
    Don't say Dallas don't love you, Mr. President
    Put your foot in the tank and step on the gas
    Try to make it to the triple underpass
    Blackface singer, whiteface clown
    Better not show your faces after the sun goes down
    Up in the red light district, they've got cop on the beat
    Living in a nightmare on Elm Street

    When you're down in Deep Ellum, put your money in your shoe
    Don't ask what your country can do for you
    Cash on the ballot, money to burn
    Dealey Plaza, make left-hand turn
    I'm going down to the crossroads; gonna flag a ride
    The place where faith, hope, and charity died
    Shoot him while he runs, boy. Shoot him while you can
    See if you can shoot the invisible man
    Goodbye, Charlie. Goodbye, Uncle Sam
    Frankly, Miss Scarlett, I don't give a damn

    What is the truth, and where did it go
    Ask Oswald and Ruby; they oughta know
    "Shut your mouth," said the wise old owl
    Business is business, and it's a murder most foul

    Tommy, can you hear me I'm the Acid Queen
    I'm riding in a long, black limousine
    Riding in the backseat next to my wife
    Heading straight on in to the afterlife
    I'm leaning to the left; got my head in her lap
    Hold on, I've been led into some kind of a trap
    Where we ask no quarter, and no quarter do we give
    We're right down the street from the street where you live
    They mutilated his body, and they took out his brain
    What more could they do? They piled on the pain
    But his soul's not there where it was supposed to be at
    For the last fifty years they've been searchin' for that

    Freedom, oh freedom. Freedom cover me
    I hate to tell you, mister, but only dead men are free
    Send me some lovin'; tell me no lies
    Throw the gun in the gutter and walk on by
    Wake up, little Susie; let's go for a drive
    Cross the Trinity River; let's keep hope alive
    Turn the radio on; don't touch the dials
    Parkland hospital, only six more miles

    You got me dizzy, Miss Lizzy. You filled me with lead
    That magic bullet of yours has gone to my head
    I'm just a patsy like Patsy Cline
    Never shot anyone from in front or behind
    I've blood in my eye, got blood in my ear
    I'm never gonna make it to the new frontier
    Zapruder's film I seen night before
    Seen it 33 times, maybe more
    It's vile and deceitful. It's cruel and it's mean
    Ugliest thing that you ever have seen
    They killed him once and they killed him twice
    Killed him like a human sacrifice

    The day that they killed him, someone said to me, "Son
    The age of the Antichrist has only begun."
    Air Force One coming in through the gate
    Johnson sworn in at 2:38
    Let me know when you decide to thrown in the towel
    It is what it is, and it's murder most foul

    What's new, pussycat? What'd I say?
    I said the soul of a nation been torn away
    And it's beginning to go into a slow decay
    And that it's 36 hours past Judgment Day
