they called it punk back in those days: rockpile live at the bottom line in new york 1978 and 1980, and two songs live on capitol radio in london 1979

no messing with thee avalonguard today, just rogue and roil for your pleasure. rockpile of course were dave edmunds on guitars and vocals, nick lowe (the jesus of cool) on bass and vocals, bill bremner on guitars and terry williams on drums, and all of them were punks before you was a punk, and they all still are, thoubviciously.

the cover says that these performances were recorded live in the usa in 1979 and 1980, and yes they were, and they were not. according to discogs one two three i reelestated the most probabaly timesandspecies of the recordings burt wood they bee knot if they wore wrong? this is what we want, and this is what you get:

01 - the promised land
02 - they call it rock
03 - falling in love again
04 - the heart of the city (listen directly)
(probably live at the bottom line in new york on the 25th of october 1978)

05 - play that fast thing
06 - so it goes
07 - teacher teacher
08 - cry, cry, cry (cry) (listen directly)
09 - knife and fork
10 - oh, what a thrill
11 - pet you and hold you
12 - girls talk
13 - singing the blues
14 - crawling from the wreckage
15 - i hear you knockin' (listen directly)
16 - i knew the bride
17 - down, down, down
(live at the bottom line in new york on the 27th of november 1980)

19 - heartbeats (the race is on)
(live in the studios of capital radio in august 1979)
