Code of Honor- Starlight Club, Los Angeles Ca 2/19/84 xfer from audio cassette Verbal Abuse Punk

It’s mediocre Monday! Here is a perfect candidate for mediocre Monday- this recording is pretty rare- I had never come across it when I traded in the 80s. The quality is not that bad for an old punk rock audience tape… but someone (possibly the taper) was shutting the deck on and off in between tracks and these old cheap decks would sometimes misalign and give you extreme “wow and flutter”, and that is exactly what happened with this tape. So, you get the majority sounding decent, then 10-15min of awful quality, then back to decent. Truly mediocre! I have tons of stuff like this!!
