Way before there was ever a term “street punk,” there was G.B.H. and they fucking rocked!!! I get chills thinking about the first time I saw them at the Santa Monica Civic with SSDecontrol in 1983. I went to the show early and hung out with both bands and had a blast. Then the sun went down and the punk rock madness began. G.B.H. played all of their hits and gave a fucking killer show that I will never forget. As usual, the promoter for the gig was Goldenvoice, who would bring back G.B.H. and other insane bands time and time again. They are one of the bands off of Clay records that do not get the credit they deserve. G.B.H. inspired many young bands stateside and if you ask many heads from my generation what British band gave the best show, they would all say G.B.H.…So today, CVLT Nation would like to celebrate these Sick Boys…Peep G.B.H. at Victoria Hall, Hanley, Leeds 11th March, 1983, after the jump!
