The Payola$: Live at The Cleveland Agora, 1982 (FM Broadcast)
Back in the pre-MFMF days, Britolboy and I did a great series on the Canadian punk-cum-new wave band, The Payola$ (see HERE). Sadly, those link are gone but here's a new find; a stellar live set from 1982-10-13 recorded for WMMS in Cleveland, OH. The band is into their more new wave, Police-ish phase by 1982 but the songs stayed excellent even while the production wavered. As is so often the case with bands who slicked-up their sound for eighties radio, the live sound is kickier.
