On Halloween (of course!) 1986, the gods of punk rock rose from the dead. The original members of the Dead Boys reformed for a short jaunt to pre-Disney NYC and leveled the audience of old heads, burnouts, prostitutes, junkies, geeks, and freaks. This DVD is the document of that hallowed evening at The Ritz. Stiv Bators, Cheetah Chrome, Jimmy Zero, Jeff Magnum
, and Johnny Blitz
got it together for one more show in their old stomping ground of New York City. Starting with an introduction from long time supporter Joey Ramone
, to the power riff of the honest-to-god anthem Sonic Reducer
(played twice!) to an unreal cover of The Stooges' Search and Destroy
, the Dead Boys put the boot to the notion that all reunions suck.
Includes an exclusive Joey Ramone intro, and live performances of Sonic Reducer, All This and More, Caught with the Meat in Your Mouth, Calling on You, Won't Look Back, What Love Is, I Need Lunch, Ain't Nothing to Do, Down in Flames, Son of Sam, Detention Home, 3rd Generation Nation, Tell Me, Search and Destroy, Flamethrower Love, High Tension Wire, and Sonic Reducer!
