It is said by many that the stage was where the Lords reigned. Now is the time to come to your own conclusion. We here at MRML like the studio albums both in spite of and because of their eighties production. There a squirm-inducing moments all over those albums where you wish there'd been a stronger, smarter producer at the board. That being said, there's something cheerfully subversive about the clash between the band's imagine (not to mention their pedigree and lyrical stance) and their pop aspirations. It's ironic but not in a laugh at it kinda way but in an unsettling sort of way. I miss having a band with such complications messing up the pop/underground dichotomy.

Still no "Live at the Spit, though I found a boot from an '82 Boston show that is probably the right one but it's in .WMA , so I'll just wait till a reader can offer us a good copy. Anyone?
Don't miss out on more live Lords from the Nuzz Prowlin Wolf!
