Wasps Mean Street Neo Bernie Torme Art Attacks Suspects & The Maniacs.
Considered by many at the time to have been an exercise in barrel scraping on a par with Some Product, Live At The Vortex hasn’t aged well, Which from a Personal point I disagree With – but does remain a crucial document.
The Wasps, Art Attacks, Maniacs & Neo represent the new blood of the second wave taking on the dog-eared stalwarts of the Pub Rock Old Guard in the shape of Bernie Torme & Mean Street.
Recorded on RAK Mobile in October 1977, Live At The Vortex has a few saving graces: The Wasps’ Can’t Wait Till 78, Art Attacks’ Animal Bondage & Maniacs I Ain’t Gonna Be History being just 3 of them.
Please note the poster has a tear see picture 2, in my opinion this could be easily repaired
