The Long Ryders – Three Minute Warnings: Live In New York City

Live album from last days of much-loved "Paisley underground" heroes

Trending Now

Here’s a treat?the first new music from the sainted Long Ryders in 16 years. ‘New’, at least, in that although this live recording from the Bottom Line was broadcast on New York radio in 1987, it has never been commercially available. Three Minute Warnings finds Sid Griffin and co on the verge of breaking up, but you’d never guess it from the verve and commitment on display. Guitarist Stephen McCarthy?now a Jayhawk?is in stinging form and Sid whips the band up to a storming climax on Neil Young’s “Prisoners Of Rock”.
