In these days of diminishing attendance at some punk gigs it was heartening to hear that the Human Sexual Response gig was bumped up from the Paradise to the House of Blues because of high ticket sales. HSR draws big in 2012, wow. HSR were always one of a kind and their own thing. Four lead singers? Never before or since.
On the day of their show a DVD of a 1982 show at Streets ( Streets!) will be released. It's everything you could hope for: long (14 songs) and a quality recording of them on a good night. I think the whole thing is worth it for the performance of Pound alone but in reality it's all great.
This House of Blues show should be awesome. To see Rich Gilbert in action and hear Larry Bangor's voice and all four singers dancing like dervishes will be a kick like no other.
