Pioneers of the loud fast stuff, The Commandos debuted their comic book punk in 1975. Later signing to Blank Records along with Pere Ubu, they released one album in 1978. This live recording of the group's final appearance in Minneapolis captures the spirit of what has become a legendary band - (from a 1984 Twin/Tone catalog)


The original release contained 19 songs and was pressed in a limited numbered edition of 1,000 albums. We released it on April 4, 1979 and sold 892 copies (the rest were given away to band members and for promotion.) Terry Katzman licensed the project from us in 1999 and released a new re-mastered CD version containing these 32 songs on his Garage 'Dor Records label. His packaging contains six pages of photos and text…worth getting it you can find it.

We offer two versions as custom burned CDs for this project…
