Part 2 of a Jon S/Big Scott X collaboration

Took me a bit longer to prep my part of this, I hope (I know) that you enjoyed Jon S' cool series of X
bootlegs posted a couple days ago......I have a handful of older boots from the band, who always were one of my favorites....VERY soon, also, I'll get around to posting the studio albums that I have as well as the TREMENDOUS "X Anthology" which is a major gem in itself.

So, I'm really not going to describe each of these shows......I loved X's unique punkabilly, LOVED Exene Cervenka's one of a kind vocals, which she traded off masterfully with John Doe, who was slamming out those one-of-a-kind X -riffs.....and a perfect rhythm section of Billy Zoom and DJ Bonebrake (HELL yes!), X was one of THE great American bands of the late 70's/early 80' favorite album was BY FAR the masterpiece "Wild Gift", followed by "Los Angeles", both of which are well represented on each of these sets....the latter albums were not as great, but, the songs still translate well on stage......yet ANOTHER one of those bands I wish i could have seen, but these boots could be the next best thing I guess....

I'll have to check, I think I am missing a couple of their later studio albums, when I do THAT post, I'm sure someone (Jon S?) will help me out! Til then rock these boots, they fucking rule!

  2. Thanks a million!

    And, not to pick nits, but John Doe and D.J Bonebreak are the rhythm section, and Billy Zoom cranks out those fantastic rockabilly riffs.

  3. Many thanks for these
