Recorded live at Max's Kansas City in the fall of '78.

The Sex Pistols weren't the only golden-era punk band to flame out quickly. In fact, Live at Max's Kansas City '79 captures the Johnny Thunders- and Walter Lure-led Heartbreakers in the first of their many brief reunions, a gig that came only a year and a half after the issue of their sole studio album, L.A.M.F.

This record features prototypically exuberant and sloppy versions of most of that classic's irresistibly catchy three-chorders, along with a few other Thunders staples ("London," "Milk Me"). You can smell the magic on this important (and fun!) document of one of the period's great American bands.

This in my opinion is the best live album of Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers. Wild and intense, in the same time vulnerable and melodious, really far out.

It also doesn't disturb that much, when the beginning of a song doesn't work out and they need a second start. My favorite songs are „Chinese Rocks", Get Off Of The Phone", One Track Mind", Can't Keep My Eyes On You" and I Wanna Be Loved".
