A legend band in a mythical place !

"DMZ, this band should have made it back when Boston was the Mecca of rock in the ending seventies.But the cliche rock'n roll drawbacks plagued them endlessly bringing the band to its end. This historic show from the end of the 70's live at the Ratskellar, joined to a reunion show from the mid 90's is too good to be true.
The band is devastatingly energetic, Greenberg's and JJ Rassler's guitars are duelling perfectly.. and Jeff Connolly, still Mono Mann at that time, is just amazing, shrieking and yelling behind his keyboards.. This collection of songs is something mythical we had been waiting for a long time. "Boyze from nowhere" is exactly what DMZ were all about, the reunion show nearly twenty years later seems to happen the next day.Another reason to miss the Rat !"

"This is a perfect selection of DMZ hits you'da heard sittin in
the Rat with yer feet stickin to the floor from spilt beer and whatever else! For those of you who were there, like me, you'll dig this wayback machine.....Those of you who weren't, may pick this up and and be unimpressed with the recording quality...but I'll tell ya I'm still waitin to see that kinda beer sweatin energy on stage these days!! And this just could be YOUR chance to throw this disc on and have some people over with a case of beer a couple a bones...."
No Classic, But Fun For Punk Fans

"Although I like their studio albums better, this live disc from DMZ has its moments. I prefer the earlier Rat recordings over the "reunion" material, but what really hurts this is repetition; was it necessary to include three versions of "Boy from Nowhere"? Even so, it's nice to have this Boston Punk stuff in release at all."
