This Collection was made available for purposes of the historical record, rather than as conventional ’concert’ footage. The shows from 1979-81 were shot on a single VHS hand-held camera, often in poor lighting conditions, reflecting TG’s guerrilla approach to live presentation, technology and documentation.
