PLIMSOULS, THE: Live! Beg, Borrow & Steal: CD

Another review of another ex-Nerves member’s record? Maybe there is a solar eclipse coming up. What next, a new Jack Lee solo record will show up on my doorstep? Not very likely. But it’s cool to have this live show available to the world. It’s an incredible-sounding live set from this band at the peak of their powers: October 31st, 1981 at the Whisky A Go Go. Too bad I was not there, but you can hear the band tear apart the Sunset Strip on your own. All the hits are here, a few covers, and The Fleshtones help out on a few songs. “Now” is my current favorite song by this band. But they all kick ass and you need to have this if you like great guitar rock with a pop edge. Plus the CD is worth buying for the pictures alone. Where do I get suspenders like that, guys?
