Orange Juice - Glasgow College of Technology, Scotland, April 17, 1980
Another good one from the I Love Total Destruction blog! Live tapes of the original Orange Juice are pretty scarce as far as I know. This one won’t win any awards for fidelity, but it’s plenty listenable, capturing a wonderfully ramshackle OJ in their hometown. Go ahead and take the pleasure with the pain!
