The Damned watching The Germs's 1st show

As Pat Smear put it, "We made noise. Darby stuck the mic in a jar of peanut butter. It was a dare, we had no songs or anything! Lorna wore her pants inside out, and Darby covered himself in red licorice...we made noise for five minutes until they threw us off." 
Basically, this photo is hilarious to me. They can't even look.

Orpheum Theater, LA, CA

Takes some balls to get up there and just make noise.

Steph: I was once in a similar "band" and it mostly takes alcohol.

JRSM: I wish I knew who took it.
