Chaos UK - Live At Oslo TV (DVD)

Here's another great UK hardcore punk band for you that dates as far back as 1979. Chaos UK went through as many lineup changes and shows as the best of them, and this TV pro shot from June 2, 1987 features the band at its' peak, slamming through 15 thrash tunes.

Not many bands can make it through several lead vocalist changes (Black Flag comes to mind) and still retain popularity like Chaos UK. Only two members (Kaos being the most notable because he sang at times too) from the original lineup followed the band through the history. They released many albums, toured the world, and for their 20-year stint I'm surprised they weren't more popular in the U.S.

This particular video looks like it was ripped from TV via VHS, so it is a little blurry. However, overall the audio and video are great. On a side note, it's interesting to see how TV video quality (effects, transitions) have changed in the past 20 years!
