Synopsis

Amazon.com
Wayne Kramer is known for his incendiary guitar work in the late '60s with Detroit's legendary MC5. A rocking, politically minded musician who spent time in jail and once shared a house with the Stooges, Kramer is a canny survivor who has engaged in more than three decades of punk-inspired fret shredding. Live Like a Motherfucker is a powerful live album illuminating the guitarist's work from his last three solo albums. Supported by Doug Linn on bass and Ric Parnell on drums, Kramer crashes and burns through an exciting set featuring quasi-bohemian blue-collar editorials laced with punk-metal guitar heroics. Whether singing about the late Charles Bukowski or reviving the MC5's classic anthem "Kick Out the Jams," Kramer is an American artist who mustn't be forgotten. --Mitch Meyers
 

CD Reviews

WAYNE KRAMER - 'LLMF' (Epitaph)
Mike Reed | USA | 12/08/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Title is supposed to stand for 'Live Like A Motherf***er!!'Makes perfect sense.Tunes I thought showed some promise were the opener "Bad Seed",the total ass-kicking "It's Never Enough","Down To The Ground","Poison",the MC 5 classic "Kick Out The Jams" and "Count Time",where Kramer shows off his bluesy side.The former MC 5 guitarist now tours with a trio.Some very basic old school all American rock&roll.Nothing really outstanding here,but pretty decent."
Blows Away "Live at Leeds" as the best live rock album ever!
Donald B. Payjack | Calgary, AB Canada | 05/31/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Absolutely essential listening!!How many rock artists do you know today that play "take-no-prisoners"-style hard-rocking guitar music with intelligent, inciteful, adult lyrics along with exploratory improvisational finesse and instrumental acumen? None that I can think of - at least none that do it anywhere near as well as Brother Wayne!!Here it is captured white-hot, live and transcendent... direct to tape with no studio touch-ups... just 3 guys playing rock like their lives depend on it... and in Waynes case... IT PROBABLY DOES!!I can't say enough good things about this artist or this CD in particular."
Great new CD from one of the giants

"I have to confess. I shot the photos for the CD. But I was also there when Wayne recorded this live at the Mint in L.A. So I've already got a copy- I'm playing it loud. My nine year old loves it. Great music, most inspired version of "Kick out the Jams" by one of the giants of rock-n-roll guitar. "Down on the Ground" is about jamming in Chicago during a police riot. "We rolled out of Detroit to join in the fight", "Junkie Romance" and "Count Time" about dope and prison. And "Something Broken in the Promised Land"is one of the reasons why when asked who he listens to Bruce Springsteen said "Wayne Kramer". Great CD, inspired versions of classics Poison, Kick out the Jams, No Easy Way Out, Stranger in the House and Bad Seed. Look for concerts. I photographed one and went back to at least six more. Its rare to see this level of talent and have so much fun rockin to loud angry music. Don't miss out."
