Regularly packing regional Midwest venues with their incendiary live shows, The Trashmen's pal Mike Jann rightly concluded that these performances needed to be documented for posterity. Bringing his portable reel-to-reel tape recorder to Minneapolis' St. Paul's Whiskey A Go-Go, Jann captured the two previously unreleased performances in August 1966. Before a hometown crowd, The Trashmen threw down the bird dance beat with an authority born of road-hardened chops. No Pro-Tools, no Autotune, no overdubs: just real, writhing rock coming at you at a 1000 miles per hour.
