Castration Squad - KPFK, Los Angeles 12-80

This band featured some members who had been involved in the Los Angeles Punk scene since the beginning. The line up is: Shannon Wilhelm - vocals, Mary Bat-Thing - vocals (pre-45 Grave), Tiffany Kennedy - keyboard , Tracy Lea - guitar (pre-Red Cross), Alice Armendariz - bass (ex-Bags), Elissa Bello - drums (ex-Go Go's). They never released any records and weren't around for very long. But this live show and a couple videos exist to prove the band once existed. This is from a radio broadcast and the sound quality is excellent.
