Cat No: STUMM394

Originally released as a bootleg in 1986, this live album is available officially for the first time ever.

The record includes a number of live recordings from shows across multiple venues in the UK in support of the release of ‘Holy Money’ in 1986, featuring tracks from that album along with ‘Greed’. “… there’s no denying the intrinsic entertainment value of having a copy of ‘Public Castration Is A Good Idea’ around the house. The title alone is enough to freak out your parents and roommates; imagine what’ll happen if you actually play it for them.” – Pitchfork.
