"D.R.I. (Dirty Rotten Imbeciles) had an early time in the N.Y. Hardcore scene. I think they had the best of himselves when they recorded that strongest gig at The Ritz, but this DVD is only for true fans and becomes a piece of amusement, just to remember those years of Hardcore, slam dance and street fury.
This DVD contains two D.R.I. gigs, one of those is like a practice concert, with a few moshers there and as like as "we are D.R.I. families and friends" but at that time those ending-teens used to make their efforts to gave attention and their horde of fans used to enjoy it, nice times and cool rememberings.
The sound is worst, but for the "home video" tecnologhy and quality at the 80's is just the best way to have some material for eternity, and it comes with an extra video with skating scenes with D.R.I. songs in back.
Two gigs, an extra video and looking for the D.R.I. early days is enought for true fans and collectors, but if you think this material is some like as "Live at The Ritz", forget it, hearing for the last tracks in both gigs "Violent Pacification" with the younger Wretch, Cassidy, Pappe and Griffith in action playing raw, pays this DVD. CONGRATS IMBECILES!!!!"
