In the early 80s, during Hanoi Rocks’ brief reign as the most exciting
Thirty years on, Monroe’s face tells the story of his life as a true rock‘n’roll survivor. And on this new live album he exudes absolute conviction and the ageless energy of Iggy Pop.
Recorded in July 2010 it sees Monroe backed by ex-Hanoi bassist Sami Yaffa, drummer Karl Rosqvist (Danzig) and two guitarists: Steve Conte (New York Dolls) and Wildhearts mainman Ginger.
The set mixes Hanoi classics, vintage punk covers, highlights from Monroe’s post-Hanoi career, and even the previously unreleased You’re Next (pure aggro) and Motorheaded For A Fall (as gonzoid as its title suggests). And with no overdubs (Monroe describes the sound as “rough and ready-or-not”) this is live rock’n’roll at its most authentic.
