WAYNE COUNTY

artist: WAYNE COUNTY & THE ELECTRIC CHAIRS (London, ENGLAND)
venue: ?
location: Cologne, W. GERMANY
date: ?? December 1978
length: 29 minutes

HERE
Hard to tell how the band was billed as WAYNE COUNTY or simply THE ELECTRIC CHAIRS, but the set (which sounds like it was recorded from radio, mostly that subtle static-y tape hiss masked as a whine) is screaming, and "Man Enough To Be Woman" has got to be one of the toughest NY/London punk '70s tracks ever. Also, because tape traders are an odd bunch - two presumably rehearsal tracks from FREE are tacked onto the end of the set. The "Fire & Water" track is legit.

"I don't how many of you understand everything or if you're just being polite"
After that piece of wisdom, Lemmy pretty clearly introduces "Turn You Round Again" as "Turn You Down Again," which is noteworthy only to extreme geeks and/or completists.
