Album Review: Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers - "L.A.M.F. Live at the Village Gate 1977" (7/10)

Rock out Like A Mutha Fucka! That’s what
 dear, departed New York punk legend
 Johnny Thunders used as his battle cry. And
 that’s exactly what the former New York Doll
 did during this two-night stint in August of 1977. While the sonic quality borders on abysmal, the raw energy and primal attack of the band more than make up for it. Sorely missing is one of Thunders’ best tunes, “You Can’t Put Your Arms Around a Memory.” For punk completists and ‘70s rock historians everywhere.

Rating: 7 out of 10
