THE GERMS, live at San Francisco’s Mabuhay Gardens in 1978 doing “No God”.

The new Punk 45 Los Angeles comp has an interview with Chris Desjardins (Flesh Eaters, Upsetter Records, Slash magazine) in which he lists his favorite bands of the era. He lists The Germs “on record”, and makes a very clear distinction “…as opposed to their live show, which was hard to follow because Darby was always too drunk” (or something along those lines; don’t have the exact quote in front of me).

Pretty much why every Germs live record or tape I’ve had gets listened to once and then forgotten.
