CITIZENS ARREST / RORSCHACH / KRAKDOWN / BAD BRAINS / ABSOLUTION live videos...

Here are some great videos posted on Youtube by user gnrpdenver (a guy called AJ from Denver), who has been purging his VHS tape collection to rip videos of these great bands. The following CITIZENS ARREST footage is the only video I have seen of them, and it's a shame that they apparently split up shortly after this show, which Daryl describes as "a perfect example of our worst gig ever" over on Bid Hardcore. It looks like literally no-one is watching them. Still great though, and your mind will explode at 9 minutes 40 seconds in!

The CA footage was, if memory serves, filmed in a studio for some sort of school project. I remember seeing this video on many a video trading list years ago. I always wished I could have caught them live but to no avail. I did see one of the bands that some of the members went onto, Hell No, and they were good. I also caught Rorschach twice with Born Against and 1 time later on their own. Friggin' Awesome live!!!

convertido: where did you see Rorschach/Born Against, and can you remember who else played? What a show. Makes me think of that flyer for Infest-Rorschach-Born Against-Heroin-Crossed Out all on the same bill. FUCK
