Most chaotic performances

Postby Darkness_Fish » 11 Aug 2017, 14:27

Yeah, I've been a bit bored and perusing youtube again. But can these two videos be beaten for sheer chaos and punk attitude:

Neubauten in the most early 1980s Berlin moment ever, playing a road.

Atari Teenage Riot, playing a riot and getting arrested

Any contenders out there?

Seen the Neubauten clip. Mad stuff.

Most chaotic one I have seen was Test Dept in an abandoned steel factory in Holland....

Missing Foundation in a squat in the East Village with holes in the floor and small fires burning here and there.

That was pushing the envelope, for me.

There's that FEAR performance in 'Decline of Western Civilization' where the band members are basically trading punches with audience members. That kind of stuff isn't really all that unusual in rock music, and punk in particular though. In Ray Davies' auto-bio, he recounts a gig in some European country when the audience rioted half a second after they played their first note, basically destroying the venue.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?
