Holy Shit!

This has existed in various forms around the web; but just in case you've missed it, never bothered or knew not of it, here it is in all its full definitive glory, ripped from cassette @320kbs, digitally enhancing the original DAT recording, allowing you to flatten off the hiss and play it very, very loud indeed.
The only way to listen.
Not much to say about this really.
Except it is one of the best live collections of avant-noise-punk songs from one of the best bands of their genre(s).
And as far as the Surfers' oeuvre goes, this captures them at their absolute peak; their very best; their most surreal and their most creative.

Gibby's mastered his Gibbytronix; Leary's axing iconoclastic; the monster rhythm section's bombastic.

Lewd, crude, extreme, offensive, but often sublime.
Live music didn't get any better than this.
