Re-release of this small-run recording of an infamous 1980's event.
As part of an AIDS / CLAUSE 28 benefit, GUS decided to read de Sade's "Justine" accompanied by a specially assembled group of musicians, working in shifts. Only 90 minutes of the gig was recorded onto cassette, with about 30 minutes missing in between the sides. Halfway through side B the stage was invaded by feminist activists who put up a large banner and fought with the bouncers. After a brief pause, where only a drum machine is heard, the concert continues. In total the performance lasted about 3 hours.
Re-mastered from the original C-90 cassette recorded straight out of the mixing desk - some cassette distortion at either
end of the tape.
released May 23, 1988
