    Yes, disgusting, stupid and ridiculous. And for whatever reason, bigozine won’t do anything to rid us of it. I think it’s been about 2 years since pervos & trolls dominate the comment column. I don’t understand why they just don’t give a damn about it.

    By Theo on Apr 29, 2022

  11. But I am the won hung low.

  13. Theo sounds like he has a little un.

    By T J on Apr 30, 2022

  14. Amazing! Thank you so much BigO! I had this show recorded on my tape recorder. I watched this concert from Rockpalast from the broadcast of West German television (then, during the communist era in Czechoslovakia, illegally) on television, but the signal reception was not very good and so the recording was not very good. Nevertheless, I still like this amazing show The Kinks and I love it. Now, after 40 years, I finally have a quality record, thanks a lot again!

    By Josef (Czech republic) on Apr 30, 2022

  15. Thanks Josef!

  16. As soon as Theo has had his rectum expanded by the BigO crew he will stop moaning and tell us about his Un. It may well be tiny but hey, meat is meat.

  24. BigOzine doesn’t seem to care, but i think I should try to figure out a way to deal decisively with the pervo-trolls. I will do some search..

    By Theo on May 2, 2022

  25. Twernt me on any of the above . No more sucking penises for me

    By U L E on May 2, 2022

  26. Thanks, BigO: this is a great show, and an excellent recording! You’ll have to excuse the gobblers who post on your site; they do not realize that h-e-l-l is for eternity; what pains await them in the next life! Whew… If they could only see the wretched demons that have their claws so horribly deep into them. If you don’t believe me, just try to reform your lives; see what kind of demonic temptations you experience. Thanks again, BigO. This show is a treasure.
