L7 - Detroit LP (Green Vinyl)

Easy Action

Capturing the group at a pivotal point in their development – in this case a gig coinciding with the initial release of the six-track Smell the Magic EP by Sub Pop – L7's performance in Detroit at Clutch Cargo in September 1990 preserves the raw, kinetic energy of the era. Named after a late-1950s animated TV series, Clutch Cargo's had become established as a key local punk venue during the '80s with the likes of the Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, Fear and X appearing at the converted church. Contains blazing live takes on such classic tracks as "Shove," "Deathwish" and "Shitlist."
