Savage Republic - Live 1983 + 1985

Three audience recordings. At the Mojave Exodus show the band played with the Minutemen and at the end of their set do a long jam with them. The Wedding Reception show is an audience recording that is missing the last 10 minutes. Sound quality is good on all. Can anyone fill in the unknown song titles?

  1. yessssssss, looking forward to these, eternal thanks in advance!

  2. Defo looking forward to hearing these... :)

  3. On the Mojave Exodus recordings, track 4 is "Procession," track 7 is "Snakedance," track 9 is an early version of "So It Is Written," and track 15 isn't really anything, just a bit of an improvisation. On the Danceteria tape, track 1 is "Mobilization," track 7 is "O Andonis," track 11 is "Siege," track 12 is "Mediterranea," and track 12 is "Procession."

    1. Great! Thanks for identifying all those song.

  4. those keyboards were kind of a mistake.

  5. Was lucky enough to go to the Mojave Exodus. When our bus broke down on the way back, was one of the four, who had driven up from San Diego, who got to get on one of the other buses while everyone else got to wait for repair or new bus to be sent. Good times. Great music... so many wonderful memories. I'm gonna be 60 next month and still love this.
