Sham 69/Crabs/Jerks/Mirrors - Vortex, London 1-03-78

*Links Coming Soon*
Here are the complete recordings of the bands that played a gig at the Vortex Club in London on January 3, 1978. Much thanks to the person who recorded and preserved this night in history. For those of us who were not lucky enough to have been able to be there at least we can live it and re-live it aurally. All four sets are audience records and the sound quality is generally very good. I'd say the rare gem here is the Mirrors set. While I had the three sets from the other bands for many years, until this year I didn't know the Mirrors set was even recorded. Thanks to Red Rossi in Italy for providing it. They play both songs from their first single and the rest remain unreleased. There are several other gems in their set. Nine of the twelve songs in the Jerks set were officially released on their We Hate You CD put out in 2001 by Overground Records. Tracks 1,3 and 4 are the ones left off. Everyone should know the Crabs recording by now. I've posted it on this blog a few years ago but now it can be heard in the context of the gig at which it was recorded. And the Sham set is a nice early recording of the band.
