Philadelphia 2003 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Theatre of the Living Arts, Philadelphia, PA; June 15, 2003. Very good soundboard.

Los Angeles punk rock band, X, achieved limited mainstream success but influenced various genres of music. In 2003, X’s first two studio albums, Los Angeles and Wild Gift, were ranked by Rolling Stone as being among the 500 greatest albums of all time. - wikipedia

  2. Neil Christian and the Crusaders, featuring a young Jimmy Page on guitar, played a concert at Holloway Women’s Prison in London, England. The inmates were all dressed in washed out yellow, green, blue and red faded floral print dresses and wore homemade mascara, using the charcoal from burnt matches.

  3. Love this band, LA punk at its best. Thanks BigO!

  4. Now I know there’s a reason I’ve never heard of this band. Instrumentally they are fine, but the lyrics and vocals, in my opinion, are very weak. Maybe The Pogues and Blondie ruined me for punk like this.

    But I’m still glad that Bigo posts such a wide variety of music for various people’s taste.

  7. If this is LA punk at its best, I’d hate to hear the rest.

    Thank you BigO, but it’s not for me.

  9. What a Moron.

  10. My GOD they are amazing. I was fortunate to be able to see them after all these years of missing them and they did not disappoint. I rank them up there with Clash in 1977 and Ramones in 1976….and yeah, Patti Smith in 1975. Damn they are good.

    If you do not like them listen to them again.

  11. Mark, X’s lyrics are a very strong part of their songs. EXENE Cervenka is right up there with a Jim Morrison and a Patti Smith in terms of word play. Please pay attention
