Holy shit. The "fish shirt" made it to Europe.

Dude... I searched for the "fish shirt" for an entire summer. A classic.

I said this before, last time you guys posted YOT vids, but man, every time I saw them live Cappos voice is so weak compare to the records, especially BDTW and CCME. His voice is brutal on those. I would see them live and he would horny-talk his way through the songs. always bummed me out. Porkel is pretty weak in these vids too. I know that touring takes a lot out of you, but dudes I saw them at CB's and the Anthrax, home turf, you know, and it was the same. Ray had NOTHING on Jules, or Mike Judge, except maybe better photo poses. Dude sure jumped around a lot.

I wish someone could dig out a video of the London show..

i dont know what YOT shows you were going to, but i saw them from 87-89 and they were the best. and while ray's vocals mellowed over time, they were always awesome. i think the singy angle was totally 7seconds style and seemed to work. as far as stage presence, nobody better. in this video porcell isn't moving around bc he was in leg cast. i dont know...as far as the straight edge scene goes...nobody better to me.

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?! the show was actually at a place called "heuried" and not the "kanzlei" like the tourposter says. (stupid trivia that probably nobody is interested in)
either way it is a time i will always remember: good times and good friends!

Hey, first anon here again. Thanks for clearing up the Porcell stage potato issue. Leg cast is definitely a good excuse! He definitely went off most of the times.

First time I saw them was '87 and yeah, Ray was a lot more fiery earlier. I'll give you that, but that was sorta my point.

@ anonymous "that show in hohenems/austria was one of the best shows i have ever been to. the club was called "konkret". "

wish I had the entire show...the footage looks indeed great. thanx for the info on this!!
the "konkret" still exists, I think (just checked it via google).
looking at the video, I am just curious, who are you: the bald-headed gentleman, the one with the grey hoodie, or possibly even the stagediving metal-head?! ;)

(I haven't been there myself due to my young age, but I probably watched this video about 300 times, when I was 16...when nothing else mattered. haha)

Did shoot lots of photos @ various European cities (Zurich, Bremen, Amsterdam, etc.)
