The Heartbreakers’ ‘D.T.K’ (‘Down To Kill’) is the incendiary live 1977 companion to ‘L.A.M.F.’ (Like A Mother Fucker), which is hailed as one of the classic punk albums. Formed by New York Dolls Johnny Thunders and Jerry Nolan in 1975, they influenced the UK punk scene, joining the Sex Pistols, Damned & Clash on the infamous ‘Anarchy’ tour. ‘D.T.K’ (‘Down To Kill’) was recorded live during the ‘L.A.M.F.’ sessions on 15th March 1977 at the notorious musicians watering-hole and features Johnny infamously trading abuse at the audience. Originally released in 1982 as a 10-track album, it was remixed in 2005 and five more tracks were found on the 2" multi-track tapes. Now the album has the entire two sets played that night, 15 unexpurgated tracks in all. Limited edition in deep red and white, colour-on-colour vinyl. The sleeve has notes by journalist Kris Needs and contemporary photos.
