Classic Rock ‘n’ Roll Hilarity: Venom frontman Cronos

Venom frontman Cronos banters with crowd at City Gardens in New Jersey. Freakin hilarious! BTW this recording circulated for years around NYC and is referenced in a Beastie Boys song ‘Deadication”. It’s also featured on the BBs “Mark on the Bus”.

I think the songs are actually edited out of the recording. You hear the opening bars and the apocalyptic finale of each song. On tape it sounds like each song is a rabid puking of drums and scraping, wailing guitar distortion. The effect just makes it even funnier. I’d love to actually play this recording as it is.
