Dirty Rotten Imbeciles

I've been a fan since I heard their amazing 1982 EP that had 22 songs in 18 minutes. I think they were the first band I heard that played "thrash" and they were the first band that introduced me to the term "Crossover". They played in Tampa a few years back and I made the short trek up there to see them. I asked Kurt if I could video the band and he said fine as long as I gave them the tape at the end of the gig. I did and he mailed it back to me with some stickers. The recording here is almost 1 1/5 hours long. They sure didn't just come into town to play a quick set and then piss off. I don't think the gig ended until 2 in the morning. I had to be at work at 5 so ended up getting no rest at all. The supporting bands were some local bands plus Kill Allen Wrench, who are entertaining although sexist. The Mentors who rocked out some spiritual songs. They are certainly everything"ist". Sworn Enemy that play NY inner city in your face hardcore. The MP3 is only in mono as i just transferred it from the video tape.
DRI have a good looking website:
