Part one of the Banshees' debut concert at the 100 Club Punk Special on Monday 20th September, 1976. Marco Pirroni, Steve Severin, Siouxsie Sioux and Sid Vicious played a single improvisational track that included teases of "Deutschland Uber Alles", "Knocking on Heaven's Door", "Twist and Shout" and "The Lords Prayer".

Note: This was Sid's first onstage appearance in a group. He pounds the drums heavily with upturned sticks, and never once hits a cymbal!

Sid's drumming is not bad at all. He is keeping great time. Much better that I could ever do at least! I really think his talent has been greatly underestimated.

Very important history...bad sound but imagine having been there on that very night...

Thanks,this boggles my mind.I had no idea it was ever recorded-been wondering for 30 years.It reminds me of Teenage Jesus And The Jerks.Any idea if it was ever filmed as well?

shitty, shitty recording, and yet....it's *far* too important a slice of history to ignore. it may not be the holy grail of punk events...but it's pretty damn close! thank-you for sharing! 
Who would have thought such a class act would emerge from such beginnings (well, amongst others, I did, actually). Thanks so much for posting, what a shame recording technology was so crap back then, I'd love to see this on video.
Not quite as chaotic as expected; sort of 'no wave' meets Patti Smith. Great to finally hear it. Thanks for uploading.

hmmmm. Glad they "evolved" later in their career.
