  • We'll let the critics tell you about it:

    Louder Than War
    "Along with some classic guitar shredding, each song is classic, great garage, with garage hooks again and again."

    Herald Scotland, Keith Bruce
    "Raw rock'n'roll that so many try (and fail) to emulate."

    A Pessimist Is Never Disappointed
    "Furious music that shoots adrenaline up the spine. There's more fury and energy here than most of the music being made by kids young enough to be David's grandchildren. A primer on exactly what American punk was, is, and needs to remain."

    Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune
    "Rocket From the Tombs is not just the great lost proto-punk band of the '70s. It's one of the best bands of the 21st Century too."

    Record Collector (UK), Tim Peacock
    "Arguably their fiercest record yet."

    New Noise Magazine (France)
    "Black Record is energetic, nostalgic, absolutely sincere and ultimately beautiful."

    David Fricke, Rolling Stone
    "No one else in American rock, underground or over, in 1974 and '75, was writing and playing songs this hard and graphic about being f**ked over and fighting mad. No one else is doing it now."

about

You want the whole picture? HERE's where you start.
RFTT imploded and split into Pere Ubu (David Thomas) and The Dead Boys (Cheetah Chrome). The band would reform to release two new studio albums - Barfly and The Black Record. This was from the tour that promoted The Black Record and in this gig, as in every other they played, you hear Rocket From The Tombs kick the ass of Rock and spit it out,and kick it out again, in a pretty much non-stop maelstrom of songs old and new in Belgium 2015. When you download there are five bonus tracks (the Encore), a "See This Band Twice Before You Die" poster file and Liner Notes.
