Extermination Night

7 Feb

The February release on www.hearpen.com is the 1974 debut of the classic version of RFTT (actually v.3.1) at Special Extermination Music Night at the Viking Saloon. The event was the first and last time all three of the legendary Cle Underground bands,RFTT, The Electric Eels and Mirrors, appeared together.

Three previously unheard songs appear in the RFTT set, including the long lost Peter Laughner song, Gasoline.

RFTT this night played as a four-piece: Thomas, Laughner, Cheetah and Madansky. Craig Bell, who had been with the band for a month or so, was forbidden to play in the band by his other band, Mirrors. It is the first performance of So Cold, Down In Flames, Ain’t It Fun, and Never Gonna Kill Myself Again.

John Morton designed the cover art for the release based on his original poster.

A PDF of liner notes is included in the download.
