Release: L.A.M.F


Sole surviving  Heartbreaker Walter Lure  was joined by  Blondie's Clem Burke The Replacements' Tommy Stinson  and  MC5's Wayne Kramer  over two nights at New York City's ‘Bowery Electric' club in November 2016, and captured for posterity.  

Also joining them on stage were guests including  Jesse Malin  of  D-Generate Liza Colby  and the  Dead Boys' Cheetah Chrome .  The DVD features bonus material of interviews with all four band-members along with Jesse Malin.

‘L.A.M.F.'  is the album recorded by Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers in punk-era London, after they accompanied the Sex Pistols, Damned & Clash on the aborted ‘Anarchy Tour'.  Being ex-members of the  New York Dolls  they were lauded by the young punks, and went on to record the high-octane rock'n'roll album, in retrospect labelled as a classic:  

"That 'L.A.M.F.', the only album by Johnny Thunders' swaggering, smacked-up post New York Dolls outfit, The Heartbreakers, is one of New York punk's defining artefacts (despite being recorded in Britain), is beyond dispute.   – Damien Love, Uncut magazine, 9/10 review.

“Arguably the best album to come out of the original wave of punk rock”  –  Joe Whyte, Louder Than War

This live DVD, coloured vinyl LP and CD follows on from the remastered 40th anniversary edition of  'L.A.M.F.'  and the reissue of an extended  ‘Definitive Edition'  4CD box set (and triple-vinyl) of the albums many mixes and demos.  

The release coincides with  Walter Lure  taking his  'L.A.M.F.'  show on out the road again – this time with the  Sex Pistols' Glen Matlock  on bass,  Social Distortion's Mike Ness  on guitar & vocals, and again  Blondie's Clem Burke  on drums.  They play six dates starting at the end of November 2017 covering US east and west coasts, with gigs in Los Angeles, San Diego, Brooklyn and New York.
