17 Aug Dead Boys – Return Of The Living Dead Boys: Halloween Night 1986
On Halloween (of course!) 1986 the gods of punk rock rose from the dead. The original members of the Dead Boys reformed for a short jaunt to pre-Disney NYC and leveled the audience of old heads, burnouts, prostitutes, junkies, geeks and freaks. This DVD is the document of that hallowed evening at the Ritz. Stiv Bators, Cheetah Chrome, Jimmy Zero, Jeff Magnum and Johnny Blitz got it together for one more show in their old stomping ground of New York City. Starting with an introduction from long time supporter Joey Ramone, to the power riff of the honest-to-god anthem “Sonic Reducer” (played twice!) to an unreal cover of the Stooges’ “Search and Destroy,” the Dead Boys put the boot to the notion that all reunions suck.
