"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.'"
