There is a live recording from the Winterhuder Fauhrhaus in Hamburg. However only one track has surfaced so far.

A fan has been in touch and says he may be able to get a copy from a Sex Pistols collector who owns it. In the meantime he has one track which we have recived.


The Show in Hamburg 6th Oct.1977 was at the Winterhuder Fährhaus.The Show starts with Londons Burning and ends with Janie Jones plus an encore of Garageland if I remember correctly.It was one of the first UK Punk gigs in Hamburg. I've got some photos from this Show. Peter, Hamburg
