(approved by porcell)

taken from a video-boot, covering YOT's european tour back in '89 (3+ hours material)

one of the very best YOT-songs, for sure.

My favorite YOT jam. Such an amazing band...
20 years after the fact no one has even sounded anything like this band. CRUCIAL.

Ok, I loved the records, saw them a lot, but is it just me or was Ray's live voice such a let down compared to the records? Especially compared to CCME and BDTW? He sounds like Godzilla on those records, and live it was like this whiney, almost horny at times, speaking interpretation. He does it on the last 7" too.

ALso, I remember getting BDTW right before seeing them for the first time, and looking at the cover going these dudes are huge! And then going to that show and being surprised that they were little guys. Built, but small stature.

Anywho...

I think the story was his voice was softer by that point because he was on his Krishna "no ego" trip, or at least that's what I figure. The version of this song on the original NYHC 7" comp smokes the 12" version. "Porcelly..." feedback... explode!

after asking porcell again, I uploaded two more vids...one more from the z├╝rich-show, and another one from austria (which looks like a cooler show, actually)

that show in hohenems/austria was one of the best shows i have ever been to. the club was called konkret. i saw so many great shows there: yot, cro-mags, accused, prong, verbal assault and tons more. definitely one of the best clubs europe had at that time. (and yes, i am in that video :) )
the reason porcell isn't moving around on stage is that he had one leg in a cast and had it up on a chair.
the show in zurich was the day after and it was boring in comparison. or maybe i was just too exhausted from the show the night before.
either way it is a time i will always remember: good times and good friends!
