For Slobodan Burgher here's the Amebix gig I recorded at the George Robey Pub, London. There is a lot of feedback on the guitar. The excellent bass playing though shines through. Vocals are good too and so often something is missing in the use of poor sound systems. The date was 18th October 1982. There was a pretty good turn out of punkers and it was violence free. As usual I rode my bicycle 10 miles to the train station, caught a train up to London and then tried to find the venue. I think I was on a double decker bus and looked down to see punks sprawled out on the pavement. I got off at the next stop and walked back to find the pub. Mark and Andy went with me and we used Mark's tape recorder. Ultra hitec, heh, that's all we had and things turned out pretty good most of the time. What you hear is what it wa like there.

My god, I was looking for some info on Mob 47's gig tomorrow on google and saw this (saying for slobodan...) with from some mp3 generator???? How the fuck did I miss this? Hm...oh well the links is still there so THANK YOU SO MUCH. With the help of the internet I am starting to get a quite extensive Amebix bootleg collection, sadly most of it is not as good quality as THIS recording. CHEERS!!!!
