**Repackaged booklet, with notes by Johnny Thunders’ & NY Dolls biographer Nina Antonia **

In 1979, Johnny Thunders met up with his teenage hero Wayne Kramer of the MC5, and together they formed GANG WAR. Johnny had just released his ‘So Alone’ LP; Wayne was not long out of jail after serving two years of a sentence of four for a coke bust. The band lasted almost a year but no records were released. These live recordings bear testimony to this unique partnership between two rock legends. They also demonstrate the difference between the two – as Wayne Kramer has said: “Music is important to me and I value the honor, the opportunity, to be an important musician. Johnny, on the other hand didn't consider himself a musician. He considered himself an entertainer.”
