artist: TALON (San Francisco, California, USA)
venue: Mission Records
location: San Francisco, California, USA
date: ??
length: 30 minutes

File this under: If You Know, You Know. But if you don't know, TALON was in STRAY BULLETS and later NOXIOUS PRICKS after he relocated to San Francisco in the early 2000s. Punk as fuck always, and this acoustic set highlights a frustrating existence in this realm punctuated by thieves, pigs, violence, addiction and redemption, even temporary. There were less than ten people in the 'audience' and he forgets the words and/or music to about half of the songs, but as excited as I was when I unearthed this tape (from AlcoholoScott's collection), it brought me to tears when I listened to it.
