  • To celebrate 40 years since the first gig the band are re-relaesing the single from 1981 - Givin The Game Away with Way of The World and Motorway Madness Live 1981 -

    If you never saw the band live hear how it was for the 1,200 fans packed into Birkenhead’s Sir James Club New Year’s Eve 1981 with the live version of Motorway Madness...mixed by legendary AC/DC live engineer Paul “ Pab “ Boothroyd who’s incredible life on the road started almost forty years ago as DSB sound man ...

    Pab recorded this using only a mike at the back of the room by the desk ... the song cuts out after about 6 minutes or so because the 40 year old tape failed … we did not want to alter it in any way as it captures the energy of the night … Conway on drums.

One day and angel apeared and she took me by surprise I looked and looked and saw the beauty in those eyes She stayed with me and how she loved me She went away to see the world without me Givin the game Givin the game away Givin the game I saw you lying there on the beach last sunday I can't remember if it was june or may She looked at me with a wry smile on her face She went away to see the world without me Givin the game Givin the game away Givin the game

I had a vision of a utopian society where ..everyone was equal….racism as a word had never existed and sexuality a personal and private choice … I always find the word tolerance a troubling one… who are any of us to ” tolerate ” another human being.
